I have been wanting to try the Newspaper Gifts Bags for a little while and while browsing Pinterest I found this tutorial...http://yourstrulyg.wordpress.com/2011/10/16/diy-newspaper-gift-bag/
So using the movie section from today's Sun-Herald - this is what was made.
This is showing both sides of the bag ... I did make some changes to the sizing, as the tutorial was for a small gift bag. I wanted to use the full size of the newspaper to make a larger bag.
Sizes I used:
Top fold - 1.25"
Bottom fold: 3"
Folds across the width of the newspaper at 7", 4", 7",4" and 1/2"
I then had to change the sizing of the card stock to match. All other instructions were followed.
I am really happy with the result, and it is one more craft item I can cross of my list of things to try.
PLUS - the Christmas tree has been dismantled, and all the Christmas decorations put away for another year.
Hope you had a great day
