 I do love to create lovely packaging for gifts that I give during the festive season and what better than a gift bag!

Tonight, I held a Facebook Live "craft along" and demonstrated how to make these gift bags!  You don't need many supplies, and they're really quick to make once you have mastered the first of course!

I have added the replay to this video to my Youtube channel which you can watch further down this post.  

To create these gift bags, you will need the following items:

There are varying differed styles of bag here but the measurement is very simple. 

For the large red / white striped bag, I used a piece of 12" x 12" DSP and scored along one edge at 3.75", 5.75", 9.5", 11.5", and along the other edge at 2" (to create the bottom of the bag).  

If you would like to add in the extra pattern at the top (the tall green bag with tree design), add an additional score line (opposite the one to create the bottom of the bag) at 1.5"

For the smaller bags, I used a piece of 10" x 12" DSP and scored along the 12" edge at 3.75", 5.75", 9.5", 11.5". and along the 10" edge at 2" (to create the bottom of the bag). 

And to create the bag with the extra pattern at the top (beige coloured bag & string lights pattern bag as shown in the picture), add an additional score line (opposite the one to create the bottom of the bag) at 1.5"
