3-D Gift Bags

Birthday Bakery Stamp Set
Instructions Below

Tag is doubled and has adhesive on 3 sides so that a gift card can be inserted in the top 

Birthday Bakery Bag

Cut one piece of CS 5 ½” x 12”  (I used More Mustard)

Score at 1” along each long side
On the short end – score at 5 ½”, 6” and 6 ½”

On each side at the 5 ½” and 6 ½” score lines, cut a slit to the 1” score line

Fold on the 6” score line
  • On the inside of your box mark where you’ll punch the holes for the handles
  • ½” down from top
  • From 1” score line, mark at 1” and 2 ½”
  • Punch holes with 1/8” hole punch
  • Ribbons are each 11” long (I sponged mine to match my paper since I didn’t have that ribbon color)

Decorate the front:

  • Background piece 3 ¼” x 4” (I used Very Vanilla)
  • Use Eyelet Border punch on each end
  • Stamp with background stamp from the Confetti Stamp Set (I used Cherry Cobbler)
  • Sponge around all 4 sides
  • Cut piece of CS (Cherry Cobbler) 2 ¼” x 2 ¾”
  • Tie a box around the top
  • Cut piece of  CS (Very Vanilla) 2” x 2”
  • I stamped my image from Birthday Bakery in Early Expresso and colored with a blender pen using Cherry Cobbler
  • Stamp the For You tag from Birthday Bakery Stamp Set (in cherry cobbler)
    • Cut out
    • Punch a 1/8” hole
  • Attach handles (don’t forget to add your tag)

Assemble Box

  • Fold on all score lines
  • Apply Sticky Strip (lay horizontal with the inside facing up)
    • to the outside of each 2 small 1” flaps
    • to the inside of the 2 – 1” strips on the right
    • adhere the 2 small flaps to the inside of the 1” strip
    • adhere the 2 – 1” strips to the outside of the other 2 – 1” strips

Cut a piece of tissue paper 6” x 6”

  • Stamp with the same background stamp used on the front piece of CS with the eyelet border
  • Scrunch and insert into bag
