Card Size Gift Bag Directions

Wow! Who knew there would be so much e-mail about the gift boxes?! Glad you like then!

Cut 2 pieces of DSP (Edited to Add: DSP is Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!'s background paper) and cardstock to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2. Glue the DSP to the cardstock for extra strength. Adhesive about 7" of ribbon to the back of both pieces for handles.
Cut cardstock to 10-1/2 x 6 1/4" Score length at 1/2", 1-1/2", 5-1/2" and 6-1/2"
Score bottom side at 1" width of the box is actually 1", i think I told you yesterday it was 1-1/2", sorry. Cut on the score lines as shown and remove the corner as shown.
Add Sticky StripFold into a box. Adhesive the front and back pieces with the handles to the box. Please refer to yesterdays posting for finished photos.

Be back later with exciting announcements about a new $99 mini starter kit and the current catalogs' discontinued items.
