More Punch Art Gift Bags



UPDATE: Instructions are now posted. Thank you for all the sweet comments and emails!! I really appreciate all of them!

Plus, I have a couple tips for you:


It's much easier to attach ribbon to the bottom base of the gift bag before assembling.

You can substitute 8-1/2" x 11" card stock in place of 12" x 12". Just make sure the left edge of CS is on top of where the die starts and that will leave you enough remaining on the right side (after it's cut) to apply st
icky strip.




And here's what I use as a guide to trace the mouth on evenly:




Happy Monday Friends!

I have a new obsession...punch art gift bags! I can't stop making them and have 3 new ones to show you today and 3 more as soon as I get them photographed.
