a youtube tutorial and had to try it. You could put all kinds of goodies inside, even a cupcake or a card and a small gift. I altered the measurements because the dimensions given in the tutorial didn't work for the size of bag I have. The sentiment came from the Cardz TV Stamp set "Garden Greetings."
The white panel on the front of the bag was cut at 4 7/8 x 6 1/4. You need to make two, one for the front and one for the back. The front flap white cardstock was cut at 2 x 4 7/8. The patterned paper was cut at 1 3/4 x 4 5/8. The paper came from a Recollections stack from Michaels. For the strawberries on the front, I used the Hello Kitty cartridge. The two on top were cut out at 1 1/4, the two on either side of the large one were cut at 1 1/2, and the large one in the middle was cut at 1 3/4. I used my favorite EK Success corner punch. I used small Velcro dots for closure. I punched holes and put ribbon for the handle.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I would really love to hear from you!
Lots of Hugs,
