Make It Monday

Welcome to this week’s Make It Monday! I spotted this project MONTHS ago on Pinterest and just HAD to have a go at making one myself! These cute bags are super easy to do, with just a single sheet of 6 x 6″ card stock or Designer Series Paper and no cutting! Awesome!

Aren’t they cute?!

Before I explain how to make these, I do have to add about this Designer Series Paper. It. Is. Stunning! Beautiful Foiled kraft heavy weight paper, that coordinated with Stampin’ Up! colours. Yes Please! Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper is counted in a Speciality DSP, because of the foiling, but it is also thicker which makes it perfect for this project. I am sure that you could use standard weight Designer Series Paper too, but this paper holds a shape beautifully!


Designer Series Paper – 6 x 6″ (15 x 15 cm)

Score at 2 and 4″ (5 and 10 cm) on the 1st side, rotate by 90 degrees and repeat

This will have created a sort of grid, diagonally score the squares in the corners of your Designer Series Paper from the corner of the paper to the point with the horizontal and vertical score lines cross. Repeat on all 4 corners

Mark the halfway point on two of the sides (opposite each other) and use this to create two scored triangles in the side centre squares

These bags are held closed with a circle die cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, and a couple of Neodymium magnets (worth a search on eBay if you don’t have some in your crafty stash! I think mine were only a couple of pounds with postage). The magnets are simply held in place with a glue dot and work really well to hold the bag closed, but you could use a hook and eye dot (not saying the brand name!) or piece a couple of holes and use some pretty ribbon.
