CTMH Jingle Gift Ideas - Purse Bag

Now for a traditional gift bag...but without the $$$ tag!

Using a regular "sack lunch" bag, and some paper, we've created a cute bag to showcase any of our other gift ideas or to WOW that special person!

1 - Regular size "lunch sack" paper bag
2 – 5 ½ x 5 ½ Presents B&T
2 – 6 x 6 Juniper C/S
2 – ¾ x 12 Juniper C/S
2 – ½ x 12 Presents B&T
4 White Bigger Brads
Piercing Tool

Cut the paper bag to just under 6”. Adhere the Patterned Paper to the corresponding Juniper Cardstocks. Adhere the 6x6 Juniper pieces to the front and back sides of the bag (be sure to either open the bag for gluing to ensure the "bottom" of the bag isn't sealed; or fold the bottom of the bag down to avoid gluing it). Using the piercing tool, pierce the top of the bag with the 12" strips of Juniper and secure with a brad. TIP: don't glue the handles in place, instead secure with the brad to allow flexibility in movement on the handles and avoid ripping/tearing.
To add an extra accent, cut two 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" tulip cardstock pieces in half diagonally to create triangles, then corner round the tip and place at the top left and right corners of the bag front/back, use these as the placements for the brads to provide that extra accent and additional durability for the brads.
