It was not my idea to make my own gift bags - I was inspired by a blogpost I had read the other day. As I have got piles of back National Geographics copies and can´t discard them because of interesting articles and beautiful photos, I decided to use them in a new way. After some failed attempts I managed it a last and will now share my know-how with you.
My friends favorite colour is orange so I chose a satelite image of the Sun.
2. On the back side draw the design of the future bag. The measurements depend of the purpose.
Beginn from the middle line. My sheet was 34 cm wide. On each side from the middle line I measured 6,3 -1,5 - 1,5 cm an drew 6 vertical lines to the top and one horizontal line 3 cm from the bottom.
3. Fold the paper along the lines and on the bottom side cut out four pinching trianglss 3 cm high.
5. Form the button and paste the parts together.
6. Trim in shape the top of the gift bag.
All you have to do now is to put the special gift for your special friend in your special gift bag.
