Small Hostess Gift Bag

Today’s project is a fun and easy gift bag you can create to give a hostess gift, or any other occasion you might be gifting a small bottle- be it a favorite wine, fancy olive oil or flavored vinegar or this bag will also fit a pillar candle or lots of little goodies too. 🙂  This handmade gift bag uses the new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and the Half Full stamp set from Stampin’ Up’s 2017 Holiday Catalogue. A great project to keep in mind for your Thanksgiving hostess!

Note: This gift bag will be 2 3/4″ wide, small to fit a small bottle about 300ml- think short and thin.  Check your bottle size to ensure it will fit. Since I was curious, I came up with a way to make a larger version of this gift bag, so come back here on Tuesday for the instructions for the larger version of this bag!

How To Make This Gift Bag:

Start with a full sheet of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. Along one edge of paper, score at 2-3/4”, 5-1/2”, 8-1/4”, and 11”. Then, turn the sheet 90 degrees and score at 2-3/4” for the bottom.

Follow the diagram below to cut all score lines from the bottom edge to the bottom score mark; cut away the small rectangle that will be left on the edge.

Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive to the flap and form the paper into the gift bag/box shape; use Tear & Tape Adhesive to fold up the bottom pieces.

Squeeze the top to a milk box-like shape and hold it together with a Gold Binder Clip. (You can insert your favorite bottle here before clipping it)

To Make the Tag:

On a strip of 3″x2″ Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the wine tag from the Half Full stamp set with Basic Black ink and color it in with the Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write markers

Punch the stamped strip with Scallop Tag Topper punch.

Then, thread the Very Vanilla Lace Trim through the hole in scallop top of the tag and tie in a bow. Use a Stampin’ Dimensional to attach to the Gold Binder Clip holding the bag closed.
