I thought I would share with you this gorgeous bag i made, to hold all of my swaps i made for the stampin up regional event in Telford. I made 75 swaps to share these cute little cards with everyone.
I have made several of these bags over past few years, but never so big. Whilst shopping a few weeks back, i found a bag that gave me the inspiration to make it.
This bag measures 6in in height and 6in in width, although the top of the bag is wider, i reinforced the rim to make it stronger.
To make one of these, you will need the following :
1- 7 x 6in card
Score @ 1/2in on all sides
Snip corners to form a tray/box base
2- 6 x 12in dsp
2- 2 x 12in strips of card
Punch border on both pieces
Stick to the base of your dsp
2- 3 x 12 in strips
Score in half
Stick over the top of the bag
Using either tombo/sticky strip/or fast fuse, centre the tray to the bottom of the dsp, stick the sides down, repeat on the other side.
Cut 2- 2 x 12in card Score in half to make 6 x 2in strip, glue this and stick to the side and inside of the bag.
To make the handles:
cut 2 – 2 x 7in fold and stick in half, folding in half will make it stronger.
Make 2 holes in each side of the bag and attach the handles with a brad.
Now you have a bag, decorate to your liking.
Thanks for stopping by, i hope you have enjoyed this tutorial, Tracy
