Hello and Happy Tuesday! I hope you're all having a fantastic start to your week. I know I've been a bit crazed the last few days, planning and prepping for my monthly card class tomorrow while keeping up with hubby while he was off for a long 3 day weekend. I love him to pieces but boy, he makes it hard to get stuff done! Anyone else with that issue?

Anyhoo, I have a really cute project to share with you. It's an adorable mini gift bag created with 2 pieces of designer series paper, and if you want to see how I do it, join me this evening at 7 PM EST on my Facebook page for a FB Live where I will walk you step by step on how to create these adorable little gift bags. They are perfect for presenting a piece of jewelry, small embellishments and any other small gift. Seriously, they are just adorable.

What you need:
2 pieces of Designer Series Paper measuring (DSP) 6" x 6"
A strong adhesive (I recommend Tear n Tape)
A scoring tool (either the Stampin' Trimmer with scoring blade or the Stampin' Score Tool)

Score both pieces of DSP at 1.5"; 1.5"; 1.5"; and 0.75" so that is 3 sides at 1.5" and 1 side 0.75". Fold on all of the score lines and adhere the 0.75" score line down so that you see the contrasting side of the paper. Then, using your paper snips, cut up on the score lines below the folded edge up to the parallel score line; add adhesive to the tabs you created and adhere to the inside of the larger tab, this will create the bag bottom. Now repeat for the second piece of DSP. Add adhesive to the outside of the sides on one of the 1/2 bags you've created. Slip this one inside the other and adhere the 2 parts together, creating a bag. Then decorate as you wish. In this case, I added a button and Linen Thread with a mini Glue Dot.

That completes our project for today, but remember, if you would like to watch me demo this project, stop by my Facebook page for the Live Demo with me, Katrina from Katrina's Kreative Heart at
