Wednesday’s WOW! #61. I have something special today. I hope you like it. I am featuring the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper all week. Of course you can use any paper for these projects but how pretty is this paper – and bonus because it is free!
Today I want to show you this cutie Butterfly bag. I have the tutorial below for you.
For the cute tag above I punched a butterfly from a scrap piece of the paper using the Butterfly Duet Punch. I used the Detailed Trio Punch on the white tag. The sentiment is from Beauty Abounds.
Here is the side view.
This is such an easy Gift Bag to make and it only uses 1/2 sheet of the Designer Series Paper. You can make a few in no time.
BUTTERFLY GIFT BAG
30.5cm x 15cm.
Score on the long side at 12cm, 14.5cm, 26.5cm and 29cm.
Score on the short side at 2.5cm and 12.5cm.
12” x 6”.
Score on the long side at 4 ¾”, 5 ¾”, 10 ½”, and 11 ½”
Score on the short side at 1” and 5”.
With the paper in landscape orientation, cut up on the scored lines along the bottom up to the score line. Angle the cuts if you prefer so the tabs will sit better when they are folded up.
Fold on all the score lines. On the top score lines fold the paper forward to show the other side of the paper. Adhere this down on to the front. See the photo to show it clearer.
Place adhesive on the narrow side tab and fold the paper to form a box shape. Adhere this narrow tab to join the other side. Place adhesive to the bottom small tabs. Fold up and then adhere the long tabs at the bottom to form the box.
Card strip – 2 @ 1.2cm x 14.8cm.
2 @ ½” x 6”
For the handles: Firstly, take a strip and run it up and down on the edge of the table. This helps curve the card and breaks down the tissue a little.
Place adhesive on each end of one strip, Position one end inside the bag at the top. Gently curve the strip and adhere the other end to the inside of the bag. Repeat the same for the second strip on the other side.
Have fun creating them,
