Paperbag Card Tutorial

Paperbag Card Tutorial

What do you need?
*a paperbag (white or kraft) 4.75 x 7.75
*Designer paper
(*Distress Ink)
*Corner Punch
*Meljen’s Image (Pre Colored)
Let’s begin…

Make a fold in the pocket at 6.5 inches (see picture)

Cut patterned paper of 4.75 x 1.25 inches glue it on the flap and use your corner punch to round the bottom corners (if you'd like you can ink your patterned papers you cut and punch before you glue them down)
Cut patterned paper of 6.25 x 4.5 inches and glue this on the front of the bag.
Decorate the bag with embelishments of your choice.
I send some of these paperbag cards to my crafting friends with some stamp images and charms, but you can also use them to give money or a giftcard for a birthday or wedding etc. You can think of something original!
The images I used for my paperbag cards are:
