Gift Bag Making

Today the lovely Arina from Arina's Card Corner has accepted to share with us her wonderful "Gift Bag Making Tutorial".  Here's how it goes:

Hi everyone here I am again with a post I saw yesterday on you tube a movie about how a bag can make an envelope.

So I thought to myself I'll also try to make an attempt to make the end I made two.

I have for you like a workshop, I explain step by step with pictures how to make the bag.
'm Curious what you think.

What you need an envelope, ribbon, designer paper, 2 brads, colored and afdrukjes.

Step 1: First glue the envelope shut, and then cut out of the sides about half an inch off.
Step 2:

then go on creasing 1.9 cm on both sides and the bottom is 2.5 cm.  Then you fold the crease lines here, but does so as well so you get a tight fold.

Step 3: then go on top briefly with a cartel scissors cut a piece off so you get a nice edge.
Step 4: Then you just run your hand into the bag and fold the crease lines on the sides and bottom and that should it look like.

Step 5: then make 2 holes on the sides of the ribbon, and then create the ribbon on your bag.

Step 6: Then decorate the front and back with the design paper, if you did go down the bottom flap so they stick.

And after you tie the ribbon around it, so the base of your bag ready and you can further decorate it yourself.

And below you see two of my creation programs I made.

1 it was made for a mother of a friend who is sick hyves.

You can do everything in, I've even made matching cards with which you have money, gift etc can put.

Arina has many other wonderful ideas over at -->her blog<-- that you might want to take a look at ;-)

Ariana, I love your envelope bag idea. However, I'm from the States and some terms I don't understand...what are cartel scissors? Is it a brand or a design scissor? Many thanks!
