Let's get stared and get crafting!

Directions:

Step 2: On the 12" side of the paper score at 4" , 5" and 9 ".


Step 3: On the 6" side of the paper score at 1" and 5".


Step 4: Cut the side strips of the shorter side (which is the front cover for the gift bag) and also cut the square flap at the middle as show.


Step 5: Place the decorative die on the front cover and die cut the front flap.


Step 6: Fold along the score lines and cut as shown in the picture above.


Step 7: To further decorate the front cover, take a white card stock and die cut the lace border and adhere to the top.


Step 8: Adhere a magnet on both sides of the bag for the closure.


Step 9: Fold all sides and adhere them using either tacky glue or tacky strip. Carefully fold the sides for the bag to close.


Step 10: To decorate the bag Stamp and die cut several frills and flowers from your favorite collection. Pyanki has used the Sweet Peony and Camellia Carnations. Stamp it using Plum Archival ink and then color them using Plum, Pink , Library green archival ink. Also used distress ink (Crushed Olive and Pine Needles ) for the leaves.

I love this! Such beautiful packaging, I wouldn't care what's inside! Although a gift card would be good. And chocolate. Thank you for all the great pictures and directions, too. Just like a class in stop-motion!

Mainly I love it because I can print and use it again & again. It is absolutely gorgeous, the bags you have to buy in the stores don't hold a candle to this one. What Mother wouldn't love to have this??? Heartfelt always comes through with a great idea!!!
