FOIL SNOWFLAKE CHRISTMAS GIFT BAGS

Christmas Gift Bags using Foil Snowflakes, Year of Cheer and Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper – Stampin’ Up products.

Both of these Christmas DSP packs are so beautiful I couldn’t decide which I wanted to showcase so decided to use both. I really do find it hard to cut into such pretty paper so I wanted to make something that would use a whole sheet of 12 x 12″ without cutting anything off and came up with these lovely bags which also have a cute back seam and tied with a bow left long which I think looks elegant from the front and back.

I created a sturdy fan closure that looks super cool with the added touch of a pretty Foil Snowflake which kind of steals the show don’t you think?

  • For the bag you will need a sheet of 12 x 12″ Designer Series Paper
  • Score on one side 2″ and 10″ (this is your top and bottom)
  • Score the other side at 2 1/8″ then 3 1/8″ then 4 1/8″ then 7 7/8″ then 8 7/8″ and 9 7/8″
  • To make the fan you will need a piece of Whisper White cardstock that measures 10cm x 20cm (I normally use inches but for ease of measurements it was far simpler to use cm’s in this case)
  • Score the short side down the middle at 5cm
  • Score the long side every 1cm finishing at 19cm
