EzyShaid Gift Bag Pattern
Step 2: EzyShaid Gift Bag Pattern

Download the EzyShaid® Gift bag pattern ( Click on the image of the finished Gift bag) on the "Downloads" page. Print the pattern and then trace it onto water colour or sketch paper. 

Cut out
Step 3: Cut out

Carefully cut out the gift bag pattern using scissors. For the slit on the front of the bag use a craft knife or manicure scissors. Ask an adult to help you if you find this part tricky.

Stamping the bag
Step 4: Stamping the bag

Ink up your Christmas stamp using a Versa Marker Stamp pad. Stamp the stamp in a pattern that suits your stamp. We have used the bauble stamp (available in the EzyShaid store) and stamped it in an off set pattern.

Stamping the opening of the bag.
Step 5: Stamping the opening of the bag.

If you are using the bauble stamp, stamp the bauble part of the stamp just below the  slit. This way when the bag is closed, a pretty satin bow can be glued above to give the impression of a hanging bauble.

Using FLIPTEZ
Step 6: Using FLIPTEZ

Sprinkle FLIPTEZ® over the stamped images.

Using FLIPTEZ
Step 7: Using FLIPTEZ

We have used greens 10153 and 10155 from the Jungle Theme Pack and yellow 10140 from the FLIPTEZ® Starter Pack. These shades were sprinkled alternatively in a diagonal pattern.

Rubbing FLIPTEZ
Step 8: Rubbing FLIPTEZ

Using your fingers rub the FLIPTEZ® into the paper  following the  diagonal pattern. Smudge some of the colours together.

Excess FLIPTEZ
Step 9: Excess FLIPTEZ

Using a soft paint brush or make up brush sweep any excess FLIPTEZ® off your work. Collect it and store it in an EzyShaid® Blending pot, you have just created a new shade of green!

Score and fold
Step 10: Score and fold

Using a pencil and a ruler score all the solid lines - the lines marked #1 through to #12. Gently fold the scored lines, this will make it easier to press all the edges togther and make a neat finish.

Double sided tape
Step 11: Double sided tape

We used double sided tape to stick the bag together. Place double sided tape on the 2 vertical cut edges marked with * of line #3 and #6 and the 2 horizontal cut edges below line #11 marked with *. Also Line #12* and #13*. Leave the backing paper on the tape.

Gluing the bag  #1
Step 12: Gluing the bag #1

Unpeel the backing from the double sided tape on the cut edge of vertical line #3 Fold the triangular shape in to meet this edge. Press this taped edged onto the outside or coloured side at the base of the triangle. Repeat this process at vertical line #6. 

Gluing the bag #2
Step 13: Gluing the bag #2

Unpeel the backing from the double sided tape on the 2 horizontal cut edges below line #11.

Gluing the bag #3
Step 14: Gluing the bag #3

Bring the bottom of the bag together, lifting one of the flaps over the to form the base of the bag. Place your hand gently inside the bag to press the tape down firmly. 

Gluing the bag #4
Step 15: Gluing the bag #4

Unpeel the backing from the double sided tape  at #13. Fold this edge to meet the other side cut edge of the bag, the line to the left of solid line #1. The inside edge #13 will be press together with the coloured side/outside of the unmarked cut edge. Gently place your hand inside the bag to press the edges firmly together.

Satin ribbon handle
Step 16: Satin ribbon handle

Unpeel the backing from the double sided tape on solid line #12. Place one end of your satin ribbon over half of the double sided tape. Checking that the ribbon isn't twisted press the other end of the satin ribbon onto the other half of the double sided tape. This creates the handle for you the gift bag.

Close the bag
Step 17: Close the bag

Fold at line #12 to form the top of the bag. Insert the paper tab on the curved edge of the bag into the slitted opening to close your gift bag.

Satin bow
Step 18: Satin bow

Using your satin ribbon create a single or double bow. We have copied the stamped image and created a double bow. Once your bow is made, stick a small piece of double sided tape onto the back of the bow. Unpeel the backing and stick the bow onto the curved edge of the bag above the slitted opening.

With love this Christmas
Step 19: With love this Christmas

 Your hand bag gift bag says "with love this Christmas" and is bound to make someone feel special and bring them joy.

Merry Christmas
Step 20: Merry Christmas

For a different look we have used a "Merry Christmas" stamp and repalced the satin bow with a gorgeous jewel.
