Mini Double Pouch Gift Bag

Hi Everyone

I wanted to share with you today how to create a double pouch gift bag. It is made by using a 12x12 and making a few scores with a scoring tool. This little bag measures 5.5 x 4.5 inches and is perfect to use for a gift card. I have used one pouch for the card and the other for a flat card that matches.

To create this gift bag,

1. Make 3 scores on a 12x12 at 6.5 inches, 6 inches, and then 5.5 inches.

2. Rotate the paper by a quarter and make 2 scores at 8.5 inches and 4 inches.

3. Crease both of these later scores and apply adhesive to the reverse side along one outside edge. Fold over and seal.

4. Fold the piece in half along the middle score with the sealed side facing out. Now fold at the two remaining score lines in the opposite direction. Put a small amount of adhesive in the middle of the inside short edge and adhere both edges together. You should now have your bag.

5. Punch two small holes on each side of the top of the bag and tread ribbon through each set of holes to make the handles.

Happy Crafting!
