These candles fell into my bag a few months ago during a mad dash around Ikea. I love Ikea candles, and this scent in particular is one of my very favourites – Vanilla Ice Cream, Yum! I often give them as gifts, but trying to package them is always a little awkward. Or it was, how cute is this gift bag!
I adore the new Designer Series Paper Colour Collections, these use the Neutrals in Basic Grey and Sahara Sand. The collections have been re-configured this year, changing the patterns, so now each collection contains 40 sheets, 2 of each of 2 double sided designs in 10 colours (or 4 of each of 2 double-sided designs in 5 colours for the In-Colour collections). The designs are stunning; a diagonal stripe, a little floral print, a bold polka dot, and my favourite a wonderful script. They are fab!
These bags are quick and easy to make, as well as holding a good amount of whatever you choose. They are strong too, these both contain candles, without any danger of the bottom giving way! The base of the bag has 6 layers of DSP, making them super strong.
Designer Series Paper, or card stock; 11 x 8″ (28 x 20.5 cm)
Score on the long side at: 1 3/4, 3 1/2, 5 1/4, 7, 8 3/4 and 10 1/2″ (4.5, 9, 13.5, 18, 22.5 and 27 cm)
Score on the side side at: 3 and 6″ (7.5 and 15 cm)
Fold and burnish all the score lines
Holding the DSP in the landscape direction, with the fatter bit at the bottom, cut off the skinny end section, and cut up each one of the score lines to the first horizontal score.
Apply Fast Fuse to the skinny end section and fold to create a tube. This seam with be the back of the bag. Then apply Fast Fuse to 3 of the bottom sections and fold each section in to form the base.
Turn the bag so it is the right way up, pinch in the top, and make holes with the 1/8″ handheld punch.
Feed your ribbon through the holes, starting from the front of the bag and working your way around
Finish with a bow
