Favor Bag tutorial
  • I started believe it or not with a 5X7 card blank
  • scor pal or any scor tool
  • adhesive
  • stamp set
  • inks
  • a boarder punch (I used threading water punch by fiskars)
  • Sissors
  • Crop-o-dile
  • ribbon
  • treats for the inside
  1. if you start with a card blank like I did, you will want to cut your card down, the width should be 4 inches and the length 10 inches (open) you could of course start with a blank piece of cardstock and cut it to 4X10
  2. score paper on the 4 inch side at 1/2 inch on both sides
  3. on the 10 inch side score at 5 inches (if you start with a card base this will be done for you) and then again at 5 1/2 inches
  4. fold all of your score lines and use a bone folder to make the folds crisp
  5. take your border punch and punch both sides on the 4 inches
  6. place some adhesive(permanent is best, I use provo craft sticky strip, (red)) on one of the side flaps and the bottom flaps and then press your fingers to secure the side shut
  7. repeat step 6 on the other side
  8. punch small holes on both sides and place your ribbon through(you can leave this off if you want a box and not a bag)
  9. fill with a gift card, candy, small treat and enjoy!
Thank you
Happy Stamping
