Making a 1-1/2″ deep bag from a flat gift bag!

Hello, I hope you are well.

The Ombre Gift Bags from Stampin’ Up! are such pretty colours and I’ve used a few of them to gift embellishment packs etc but as they are flat there’s a limit to what you can use them for. So I’ve transformed one into this gift bag that is 1-1/2″ deep at the base…

Click on the image below to find out just how easy it is to make this bag and the ombre tag too…

Here’s a close up of that gorgeous shimmery tag…

To make this you’ll need the following supplies

  • An Ombre Gift Bag
    • trim off 1/8th of an inch from the bottom
    • score the long side at 1″ at the bottom
    • score the short side at 3/4″ from both ends (as shown in the video)
  • Basic White card for the tag
  • In Color Shimmer Vellum for the tag decoration
  • One of the Square Vellum Doilies
  • Coordinating Ink, Ribbon and white twine

Here’s the bag I made in the video along with the original one…
