Handbag Gift Bag

Hello Crafters 

Today I am flying in to share with you all a new project I have been working on, which turned out fantastic. I did do a prototype first before I did the ones I am going to share with you all.

Here they are: One was made with 12x12 DSP (Designer Paper) and the other was made with 6x6 DSP (Designer Paper)

The products I used are:
Pop Of Pink DSP - 12x12 bag
Playful Palette DSP - 6x6 bag 
Glimmer Paper (from Sale-A-Bration)

So what do you need to make these very cute and very easy Handbag Gift Bags 
1 - 12x12 DSP or Card 2 x strips for the handles (any size and width you like)
Gift Box Punch Board 
Velcro Dots 
Any Embellishments

What to do:
On your Gift Box punch board there will be directions and all you need to do is follow the instructions on your board as you would to make a box .
Once you have done all the steps you then need to fold and burnish all your score lines, Now fold in and glue down 2 of the triangles any two that are opposite each other e.g one closest to you and the one away from you
Choose which is going to be the front of your bag and which is going to be the back of your bag - Decorate as required
Now construct your box as normal DO NOT glue down the other two triangles you will need these,at this point you should have everything glued down and stable and will have a box with two triangles sticking up.
The sides where you stuck down the triangles gently pull them out to the sides so you start t get a little give int hem but not too much otherwise you will have lines.
Now the two triangle that are left fold them in half way and glue this gives you the flaps of your handbag some stability and makes the closure 
Add your Velcro dots underneath one of the triangles and stick the other side of the Velcro on top, then push the sides together so the flaps meet each other to make the closure and stick together using the Velcro.
Last but by no means least attach your handles - Use your bone folder to help give the handles the shape.

Now you should have a completed Handbag Gift Bag - Give your self a pat on the back 

All the sizes on the Gift Box Board can be used to do these bags.
