Show Me Sunday - A Tutorial by Channa!

Good morning all, 

Today i am going to share a " paper bag card" tutorial. I have been wanting to make this for a while and i thought this would be a good opportunity to share this with you.

I have already started making my Christmas cards, i thought i would 
start it from now so i wont have a Christmas meltdown in November.
 But you can make this card for any style you like.

 For this tutorial you need:

A paper bag
Sticky tape or glue

First cut of the handles of the bag

Fold the bag in the middle

Take the measurements of your bag, front, back & the inside.
 The inside needs to be measured 3 times, because of the bottom of the bag. 
Cut your paper according to the measurements that you have taken.
This can vary depending on the size of your paper bag. 


 (inside,  times 3x)

After you are done with the above, add a piece of ribbon on the middle of your bag. 
This will hold the card together, because it will be bulky in the middle with 
all the layers of paper you will add in the middle of the card.

Now add sticky tape on all the pieces of paper you have cut.
 I have chosen for sticky tape so it wont come off, you can also use glue if you want. 

Decorate the card as you please!
Don't forget to make a blank card to stick in the right side of
 the card, so you can write your personal wishes.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
Thank you for stopping by and have a good day!
