Blog Hop Line Up......


Jen Fisher (That's me!)
Folded Over Gift Bag Tutorial:



1. Cut a square 8"x8".
2. Score in half, diagonally. Score 1" to the left of the central score line. Score 1" to the right of the central score line.

3. Rotate square 90 degrees clockwise so the the scored lines are now horizontal. Position on the 6" score line and score at 4" and 8".

4. Fold the left and right hand sides over at the front.

5. Fold centrally to create a valley fold, followed by a mountain fold and finally a valley fold. Now, simply decorate!

The folded over gift bag is perfect for gift cards or small gifts.
Enjoy the rest of the Crafter's Companion Crafternoon for Mind Blog Hop!
Happy scrapping, jenx

  13. I have some teenage grand-children who wanted money for Christmas. Maybe make some of these rather than just fancy envelopes.
