3-D Items, Valentine's Day

Valentine Mini Bag

Today I am sharing this adorable mini gift bag that I made.  This mini bag showcases the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack and the coordinating Embellishment Kit.  This is a quick mini gift bag that is perfect for jewelry or to fill up with candy.  No matter what you choose to fill it with, it is a perfect way to package your Valentine’s Day gifts!

Directions:

  1. Fold, crease, and attach the 1-1/4″ flap of both 6″ x 6″ sheets to the front of you DSP with Fast Fuse.
  2. Take one of the scored sheets of DSP and place Fast Fuse on the left and right side flaps.
  3. Use a ruler and align the edge of the ruler at the 1-1/4″ score line of the upper flap.  Make a small pencil mark at the 7/8″ mark on both side of the bag.  Follow this step for both sheets.
  4. Take the 1/4″ (I made a mistake on mine and used the 1/8″) handheld circle punch and punch a hole at each mark.
  5. Align and attach the right hand flap of the DSP that doesn’t have any adhesive on top of the left hand flap.
  6. Take the other end that doesn’t have adhesive and attach to the remaining flap that has adhesive.Take 2 pieces of 6″ x 6″ DSP and score all four sides at 1-1/4″.
  7. Turn the bag bottom side up and fold in both sides (as if folding a gift package).
  8. Place adhesive on each long edge of the “triangles” you have made and fold over to finish the bottom of the bag.
  9. Take a piece of the Blushing Bride Satin Ribbon and thread through the hole and tie a knot.  Run the ribbon through the other hole and tie a knot (adjust according to the size of handle you want).  Cut another piece of ribbon and follow the same step for the other side.
  10. Embellish as you wish.
  11. Add some paper filler to the mini bag and place your gift (i.e., gift card, candy, jewelry, money, trinkets, etc.)
  12. You are done!
