Seventh Day of Christmas-Box in a Bag

Okay, sorry about not posting yesterday, but I got busy.

Today is a box in a bag. This is a great way to give a gift to anyone.

Box instructions:

Step 1: Cut cardstock to 4 1/2"x 4 1/2" square.

Step 2: Score at 1" on all sides. (See picture)

Step 3: Bring corners in one at a time to make "box corners". (See second picture)

Step 4: Use sticky strip tape to adhere these four corners.

Bag instructions:

Step 1: Cut Designer series paper or cardstock (stamp this first before assembling any further if desired) t0 5 1/2" x 11" strip.

Step 2: Add sticky strip tape on bottom(one of the LONG sides) and one side(shorter side). (See third picture)

Step 3: Start rolling this paper from the bottom (if you start in the middle of the paper, your seam will be in the back.) continue to the end. (See fourth picture)

Step 4: Cut a strip of cardstock or DSP to 11"x 2" and use the scallop punch to make a decorative edge if desired, or you can leave it just as it is.

Step 5: Wrap this around the bottom of the box.

Add any embellishments as desired. I used the Tab Punch to create a tab for putting ribbon through to close it.
