Boxbag & Tag
An adorable little boxbag. A silly name but it starts with the base of a box. The base is 4 1/2"x 4 1/2" square of card stock, scored 1" all the way around to make the box base. The designer series paper is 5 1/2" x 11". I used the decorative label punch for the handle, folded in half. Any symmetrical punch would do. To reinforce the base of the container I used a border sticker. If you were not using a scrapbooking kit, you could cut a piece of cardstock 1"-1 1/2" x 11", or you could use the Tasteful Trims Bigz die.
Did you notice that cute little Santa tag. I found it on Pinterest and here is the link to the directions. I didn't follow it exactly but enough so you can tell it is Santa. I think he could be made into a Leprechaun if his hat was green.
I hope this inspires you to make your own gift packaging.
Until next time,
