Wednesday Webisodes - Week 1 Christmas Gift Bags

Beginning of blog posts

Welcome to week 1 of my Decorative Christmas Bags Tutorial series sponsored by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, Echo Park Paper Co., and Bags & Bows Online!

Watch this week's video HERE

Here are some photos of this week's Decorative Christmas Bag:

Here are the measurements so you can make your own box top for your bag.

My bag is 8 1/2 inches wide with a 4 3/4 inch gusset. I wanted a 1 1/2 inch lid so I added 3 inches (1 1/2 inches times 2) to the length and side. So with the width of the bag being 8 1/2 inches, it meant that my paper needed to be 11 1/2 inches. The gusset of the bag is 4 3/4 inches, so it meant that the other side of my paper needed to be 7 3/4 inches. 
If you follow this example you can make a box top for any size bag!

Below are the photos of the prizes that will be offered for each of the 3 weeks in this series.
