Quick & Easy One Sheet Gift Bag



Necessity is the mother of invention right? Well for me, that was the case. I had made a regular size CD case calendars for my son and my son-in-law. I wanted a gift bag and had none the size I wanted in my gift bag stash. I looked at my Gift Bag Punch board and it only made a bag up to 3-5/8" wide. My cd cases are 5" wide, or just a smidge less. So looking at the Punch Board video I came up with my own pattern using their pattern as my template.




My friend came "shopping" from some of my Christmas stocking stuffers and saw the bags I made for my son & son-in-law and a smaller one for my daughter's calendar. She wanted to buy the one for my son-in-law and I had to say sorry, but I'll be happy to make one for you and bring next week when you cut my hair (she's has her own hair salon). I wasn't sure which size she wanted size I had a larger one also sitting on my table, so I made both sizes out of the paper she liked an she can chose which ever one she prefers.


Here's how I made it:



I love to be able to use my retired papers, punches and stamps for my crafting gifts and cards. I hope this video give you inspiration to use what you have on hand. If you give this a try please share a photo on my Facebook Group page Cottage Lane Stamper & Friends.


Tip: After I made this video, I discovered that if I scored the paper on the opposite side the paper didn't crack, the only thing is that it will look backwards when you go to assemble it, the flap will be on the left side and the first panel of the bag will be on the right side.


Short bag dimensions:

Paper size 10-1/2" x 8", scored at 5, 5-3/4, 10-3/4 & 11-1/2" on long side

Score bottom at at 3/4" and top at 1"


Tall bag dimensions:

Paper size 11" x 8", scored at 4", 5", 9", 10" and 10-1/2" on long side

Score bottom at 1" and top at 1-1/2"


I also made a video a couple years ago for a little larger bag using two sheets of DSP. Here's that video:
