The Scrapbook Garden- Square Gift Bag

This is my 5th project from this months design kit for

My friend Shelagh kindly gave me this template to make these fab little gift bags.
The template is too large to be able to cut 2 pieces from one 12 x 12 paper
but as these papers went so well together it seemed fine to do a plain back and a contrasting front.  I used Bazzill Ruby Slipper and also Authentique Curiosity

I folded the paper on the score lines ( both pieces are identical)
Then punched holes in the top of both panels ready to accept the ribbon
which was from my own stash.

Using double sided tape i placed some on all of the edges
and attached both pieces to each other

I added the ribbon and secured it on the inside of the bag.

Its made a lovely little bag which was very quick to make.
Im sure I will be making alot more of these in all different colours .
