Santa's Kitchen recipe gift bags.
Today I have these 3 cute gift bags. They measure at 8" tall x 4" width x 2" depth.
I started of with some coloured card at 12½" x 9½" and scored down the 12½" side at 4", 6", 10" and 12". This will leave half an inch on one side. I then turned and scored again at 1½". I cut up the bottom at each score line to the 1½" score line. After that I burnished all my score lines and then assembled the 3 bags using red liner tape.
After that I cut some silver mattes at just under 8"x4", then cut some patterned paper at 7¾" x 3¾". I layered the patterned paper onto the silver mattes and then adhered them to the bags.
To make the pockets I cut some card matching the colours of the bags at 3" x 4"and the patterned paper that matched the bags at just under 3" x 4". I layered the patterned paper on the plain card. I added red liner tape on the back side along the bottom and sides and adhered that to the back of my gift bag to form a pocket.
I then stamped out the sentiments and recipes using the Santa's kitchen range by Crafters companion.
Using the tag dies included I cut the recipes into tags. I then used some nested oval dies to cut the sentiments and some card to layer them on to.
I made some double loop bows and stuck them to the top of my bags using hot glue. I used foam pads to stick the sentiments to the center of the bags.
I used coloured twine that matched the bags on the recipe tags and put them into the pockets I made at the back.
I finished the bags with some gems on the bottom corners of each bag.
Thanks for looking.
