I created a set of three gift bags using the Illustrated Faith: You Are Loved collection. These bags are actually a kind of hybrid, more of a cross between a box and a bag, and they couldn't be easier to make!
For this first one, I used the Heart A Flutter paper. I trimmed the paper to 7 1/2" x 12". Placing the paper horizontally, I scored at 2", 5 1/2", 7 1/2", and 11". I then turned the paper 90 degrees and scored at 2". I assembled it as I would any box.
These bags are so easy to customize! You could add ribbon handles to the sides, or even pinch the top closed and tie it shut with some ribbon or string. I think the best parts of using Bella Blvd's paper is that it is thick and sturdy (which is why I called it a cross between a bag and a box) and the inside is decorated with a coordinating print!
I hope you give these bags a try!
