Box Bag!

I have been wanting a pink Christmas tree since I saw some at Big Lots at the beginning of the holiday season. I thought it would be so much fun to have to hang all my flamingo ornaments on. I still haven't found the the extra money to purchase my frivolous tree so I thought I would stamp one up today.

How much fun is this little trinket! These little solid bottom bags are great to give away. Fill it with a cute little gift or some yummy candy and you will hear the squeals of delight.

Here are the instructions for you to make many and give away to make someone fabulously happy! Enjoy!Cut a piece of cardstock 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 and score at 1 inch on all four sides. Then score the four corner squares diagonally to form two triangles. Glue to form a box. I used liquid glass to glue the box together for strength.
Cut a piece of Background and Texture paper 5 1/2 x 11 and adhere to the bottom of the box to form the sides. Cut a strip of cardstock 1 1/2 x 11 to decorate the bottom of the box bag. I used decorative scissors to scallop the long end of the strip.

I punched two holes in the top of the bag and threaded some ribbon through to close the bag. Embellish your bag with some stamping and ribbon or whatever your heart desires. Voila! A fun little bag to give away.
