Butterfly Kisses - Foldable Gift Bag

Just dropping in to say hi (its Sandra here)!!  I also wanted to share a cute little bag I made using Kaisercrafts Butterfly Kisses Collection.

I found this bag/box on pinterest and just had to make it....the instructions are a bit difficult to explain in writing but I'll give it a go.

Take a 12 x 12 double sided paper (I used Butterfly Kisses - Daisy Chain).  Score in 3" from one side and then again 3" from the other.  Fold at the score lines and then fold out.

Turn your paper 90 degrees then score at 4" from one side and then again at 4" from the other. Fold at the score lines.

Now turn paper back again and fold in the two sides that are at 3".  You should have a rectangle in the center which measures 3"x6".  For each place where the two fold lines intersect, you need to fold it back like above.  (its tricky to explain but if you are really interested in seeing where I got the idea from please let me know and I can forward you the link!!)

Once folded it should look like the above.  I punched out a decorative strip (Kaisercrafts Cardstock - Bubblegum) to add to the top and also punched out holes for the ribbon.

Then I decorated the front of the bag/box.  I used papers and embellishments from the collection.  I die cut a cute tag and attached it as well.  You can really go crazy with the embellishing!

I think its really sweet and will definitely be using this for my little one's future birthday party favours.

I really love the little birds and butterflies in this collection!  And the bright, happy colours are just so sweet.

If you love this collection as much as I do, or you are looking for other gorgeous papers and papercrafting supplies, please head over to where the lovely Kerry will be only to happy to help you!

I hope you like my little project!
