Star Topped Gift Bag

In today’s Video I share how I made this Star Topped Gift Bag with the help of my Gift Bag Punch Board. It’s quite easy. The only tricky bit is remembering where to start threading your ribbon through.

Isn’t it cute? You could easily make a few of these for Christmas or any other occasion. You can get 2 out of one 12″ x 12″ sheet of Designer Series Paper. Here I’ve used the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack. Now, you could make this little Star Topped Gift Bag for any occasion by just changing the paper.  You could also change Star Topped Gift Bag 1 the ribbon. Keep in mind the ribbon needs to be narrower than the holes and a satin finish is good. A ribbon which will slip easily between the holes.

Now the problem, I had getting the ribbon to close the bag was because I was starting and ending in the wrong place. We all make mistakes, don’t we? Anyway, you need to start and end on a side, the bit that goes in like a valley fold and that will close the bag without any hassles.
