Hello We R fans, Laura here! Today, I am going to share with you how to create a custom gift bag for a baby gift. It would be perfect for a baby shower or a new mom. You can customize the colors and size to perfectly fit your gift.
To create the gift bag you will need the Template Studio with the gift bag guide. The Template Studio works with poster board sized paper. We R Memory Keepers has so many beautiful designer posterboards to choose from. I chose a pretty yellow polka dot posterboard for my bag.
You will use the straight guides to cut your paper to the correct size. Since I was creating a 10” x 5” x 10” size bag, I needed to cut two sheets of posterboard. I was able to get them both cut out of the same piece.
Use the gift bag guide and the instructions to cut notches in the bottom of the bag.
Then you will need to score the bag in several spots to be able to fold it properly. To create the larger bag, repeat the steps on both sheets of posterboard.
Trim off the excess from the corner with the small fold. This is where you will attach your bag together using strong adhesive.
Fold the bag on all the score lines. Attach the sides of the bag together and use adhesive on the bottom. I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes at the top of the bag to thread some ribbon through.
Next, I used the mini Alphabet Punch Board to spell out the word “BABY”. I attached it to the front of the bag using adhesive squares. Then I added an adorable gold puffy heart.
Since there are so many different designer poster boards, you will be sure to find exactly what you need to create any kind of gift wrap for that special baby shower.
