Gift Bag Punch Board #135862
Card Stock or Paper cut at 10″ long for a Small bag, 11″ long for a Medium Bag, and 12″ long for a Large Bag. Cut the paper 1-1/4″ taller than you want the finished Bag height to be. For example: a 6″ tall piece of paper will make a Bag about 4-3/4″ high.
Adhesive: Fast Fuse OR Tear & Tape
Ribbon or Baker’s Twine if desired
1. Score along the 10″, 11″ or 12″ side of the paper at 1-1/4″ with either your Gift Bag Punch Board or other scoring device.
2. Remember to Punch first, then Score.
~a. Start at the Start Line. Punch then score at the S, M, OR L line depending on the length of your paper. 10″ long=Small. 11″ long=Medium. 12″ long=Large. This will be the Back of your Gift Bag.
~b. Move your Score Line to the Start Line. Punch. Now score the side of your bag: Left side of Triangle, line down the Center of Triangle, Right side of Triangle, then the Side Line. These 4 Score lines make the side of the Bag with the Pleat.
~c. Move the Side Score Line (the furthest to the Right) to the Start Line. Punch. Now score the S, M, OR L line to form the Front of your Bag.
~d. Repeat Step 2b to make another Side and form the Tab for the adhesive. Trim off the the flap part of the Tab. Check the diagram on the Punch Board to made sure your project looks the same.
3. Place adhesive on edge of Bottom Flaps: Front facing up: both Sides and Back flaps and side Tab. Turn over so the inside is facing up and put adhesive on the Front flap. Fold in the sides first, then the Back, then the Front. Use your Scoring Tool to press down the adhesive.
4. Optional Ribbon Holes. Punch the end, then each side of the Front and Back. DO NOT punch the center lines of the Sides.
Happy Gift Bag Making!
