Pattern - QC: Elegant Gift Bag

  • 1. Pique your gift recipient's curiosity with a glorious little gift bag, using Anna Griffin's Dorothy Christmas Collection decorative paper and three-dimensional stickers. Print and cut out pattern. Trace pattern onto patterned paper; cut out. Fold in both thin flaps, then fold in both thicker flaps for a tic-tac-toe look to the folds. Where the crease in the corners meet, pinch and fold up to make a wall. Repeat for remaining three corners, then fold over top to complete bag assembly. Cut white cardstock rectangle; mat on lt. blue cardstock and trim with scallop-edge scissors. Glue rectangle to bag front. Tie an ivory satin ribbon (Anna Griffin) bow and glue to the bag. Adhere stickers to bag.
  • 2. For handle, use photo as guide to poke two small holes in opposite sides of top flap. Thread wire end through holes in one side; twist to secure. String coordinating beads onto wire, then thread end through holes in opposite side; twist ends to secure.
