#MakeitMonday Special Wrapped in Plaid Tartan Gift Bag Stampin' Up! 2019

Free online step by step tutorial on how to make a handmade gift bag for Christmas or Birthdays

This is a project made by Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Tricia Smith, based in Fife, Scotland, UK



Hello and welcome to an extra #MakeitMonday tutorial – today we are making an awesome super traditional looking Christmas Bag. I love the black with the plaid DSP.

Instructions and Measurements:

  • Cut two pieces of basic black cardstock down to 10″ x 8″.
  • Score at 2″ on three sides – the remaining top side is the top of your bag so score at 1 1/2″
  • Fold and burnish – remember and fold your bag flap over the opposite way.
  • Cut and adhere as instructed in the video.
  • I decided to only add DSP to the front of the bag – the DSP should measure 3 7/8″ x 5 7/8″ for the main front and 3 7/8″ x 1 3/8″ for the flap at the top.
  • Punch out a starburst shape in black and 2″ shape in shaded spruce or other green card.
  • Stamp a sentiment in Cherry Cobler ink.
  • Add some snowflake stamps in whisper white ink.
  • Punch out some black and shaded spruce sprig shapes
  • Finish off sprigs with some wink of stella ūüôā
