Designer Tip: When scoring your paper try using a light touch so that you don’t rip the paper.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Gift Bag: Cut 11”x8” Chalkboard teal patterned paper. With the gift bag punch facing you with the yellow punch on the top left corner, align the left edge of the paper to the yellow “START LINE” (Paper width should be horizontal). Punch paper. Score the “HORIZONTAL” score line and the “M” score line.
  2. Slide the paper to the left so that the “M” score line is now aligned with the “START LINE”. Score the “HORIZONTAL” score line, the “TRIANGLE” score line, and the “SIDE” score line.
  3. Slide the paper to the left so that the “Side” score line is now aligned with the “START LINE”. Punch the paper. Score the “HORIZONTAL” score line and the “M” score line.
  4. Slide paper to the left so that the “M” score line is now aligned with the “START LINE”. Score the “HORIZONTAL” score line, the “TRIANGLE” score line, and the “SIDE” score line. You should have a small tab left over on the far right of your paper. Turn the paper so the bottom is now at the top. Turn the punchboard so the yellow punch is now in the bottom right corner. Slide the paper into the punch and align it with the “TRIANGLE” score line. Punch holes. Repeat again on the next “TRIANGLE” score line.
  5. Place Black Dot Fabric Tape around bag 1/4” from bottom. Cut 2 1/8”x2 3/4” Chalkboard pink patterned paper and Mat on black cardstock leaving 1/16” border. Cut 1 3/4”x 2 5/8” “Keep Calm and Smile On” sentiment from Chalkboard sentiment patterned paper. Cut and place Pearl Allure Swirls as shown. Apply glue to the tab, glue box sides together. Glue box bottom together. Cut 6” strips of Black Dot Fabric Tape, fold in half and thread into punched holes in bag. Tie knots on the ends to keep from slipping out of bag.
