Gift Bag Extravaganza!

This week is going to be gift bag extravaganza!
Every day I will be featuring a new bag!

For this gift tote I started with bravo burgundy card stock I rolled with the jumbo woodcut holly roller that had the bravo burgundy cartridge inside over the entire card stock I then assembled the gift tote the dimensions for word the gift told are take your 8 1/2 x 11 card stock score at 3 inches the long way turn your card stock and score at to 2", 5", 7", and 10" leaving a 1" flap at the end. Cut the piece of flap that measure 1" x 3" of so you should have cut off the little corner, leaving a 5 1/2" x 1" flap. Now cut the score marks on the bottom to the 3" score in running lengthwise. Good to score he says that measure 2" need to be cut to a length of 2" will to go so you will have 2 @ 2" and 2 @ 3". Once you have this done you can assemble the box just like you would a 2,4,6,8, box. To decorate the box I use brush gold, handsome hunter, and bravo burgundy I layered those and adhered to the box. I then stamped the holly with versa mark and used gold embossing powder on it colored in the holly with markers. A holly is matted again with brush gold, handsome hunter, bravo burgundy. For the handle I used ribbon and brads to secure it.
