Cute bag!

While I was making a mini album for a gift I realized that I needed a cute little bag to put it in.

So, after trying this and that, I ended up with...

Isn't it pretty? Here's how I did it (no measurements unfortunately because it was an experiment, I had no idea what I would end up with!).

1. I took a 12 inches paper and used my ruler diagonally to mark the base of the bag. Then I cut about 2-3 inches along the mark lines on each corner. Finally I cut a piece of the flaps on the left and on the right.

2. I glued the flaps.

3. Then I glued the center strip, folded it inwards and glued that piece as well.

4. Here's the result after doing both corners.

5. I also reinforced the top of the bag with two strips of paper because I didn't want it to be torn. Not that the mini album is that heavy but better be safe than sorry!

6. I also reinforced the bottom corners.

7. I embellished the top with a border punch.

8. I punched a hole on the corner, added a gromlet and then added a bow on the inside to hide the back side of the gromlet.

What do you think of it?

That's it for now, I hope you're all well and thriving!
