Hello again, i posted this bag a few days ago and i said i would share with you how i made it bigger. Well here goes;
Firstly you need to know how wide you need your bag, because you need it to be bigger you will need to join your paper, you dsp that doesn’t have a busy pattern, it will be easier to join it if it has a simple pattern.
For example, you want your bag to be 7in wide and about 5in in height.
Cut your 12 x 12in piece of dsp in half, to 6 x 12in, join together on the inside.
Now using your score board lay your dsp down and score a line at the 6in mark; this will now be the edge of your dsp.
Line this score line up with the start line on your punch board, follow the first step to make the gusset, once you have done that, remove your dsp and lay it back down on your score board, from the last score line on your dsp measure 7in from that line, now go back to your punch board and line that last score mark up at the start line and follow instructions on the punch board . Trim the side down to give you a tab to stick your bag together, glue the base together. I reinforce my base with a piece of cardstock the same size as the base on the inside and outside of the bag. Punch hole’s and tie ribbon on for handles. Voila!!!! you now have a bigger bag. Now try it out with different sizes.
Thanks for stopping by
