Starz Mini Gift Bag

Stars are having a cosmic moment on the fashion scene. Here's a link to a Guardian article dicussing the trend. So - I have decided to channel the trend in a paper-y way. Above, some handy mini-gift bags in a starry print. The bags are good size for sweets.

You can finish the bag with a ribbon through the hanging loops - or with a lolly stick (cake pop).

Here are your free design files:

The template is in two pieces - you can only fit so much on an A4 piece of card!
So - you must glue the back on to the front piece before assembling the bag (use a glue stick).

Glue the back section on top of the back bar of the front section. The flap fits in the rectangular opening on the front piece.

Score and crease the folds.

Fold the hanging loops on either side in half and glue them down. Glue the brad mats back-to-back. Insert the brads through the mats and insert them through the holes in the bag before assembling the bag (one on the tab, one on the bag front).

Join the bag sides, then the base. Squeeze the bag sides gently, narrowing at top. Tie a piece of string on to the top brad, behing the mat.

You can either glue a lolly stick or a thread a ribbon through the hanging loops at top. A 10cm lolly stick will have to be trimmed a bit - take care!

Coordinating gift tag included.

Have a superstar holiday season!  :)
