Fall Gift Bag

I am excited to be sharing my first Scor-Pal project today!  Last week the design teams from Scor-Pal and DCWV teamed up to bring you some fabulous inspiration on both blogs.  

Today I wanted to share the project I made using The Autumn Melody Stack patterned paper and The Autumn Melody Cardstock Stack.  I made a gift bag and matching card.

Using a Scor-Pal and a 12 x 12 -inch piece of scrapbooking paper, score two lines: 3" and 9"
Turn scrapbook paper 90˙and score at 5" and 7" (these score marks will form the base of your bag) and fold at score marks using scor-tool to make nice crisp fold line.

Starting with one of the intersections in the center that you just folded, fold the paper towards you at an angle, see picture.... 
The left side needs to fold down up to the edge so it is straight.  Repeat on all four sides to make a bottom for the bag.

When all four are folded it will look like this: 

To secure the edges, add some 1/4" Scor-Tape.

*Tip - I add scor-tape wherever two pieces of paper meet to keep it from gapping when paper is folded.

To add a top to the bag, I used coordinating card stock and trimmed it 2 1/2 x nearly 6 inches and scored at 1 1/4".  Then I trimmed it to fit perfectly and folded it over the top adhering with Scor-Tape (repeat on the back). 

I added a scallop border and embellishment using dies/stickers.

I made a handle for the bag by cutting a two pieces of card stock 1 1/2 x 12 and using Scor-Tape taped them together so the inside of the paper did not show, it also added sturdiness to the handle.  

And here is the final project along with a card featuring a rosette.

This was a lot of fun to make and hope this is something you will try!  Be sure to check out all of the projects from this week on the Scor-Pal and DCWV blogs!
