Favor Bags and Center Pieces!

This bag is a great size for gift giving or using for a large favor bag...you can even size it to fit your needs!  As it comes, the bag is approximately 8" (11-1/4" with handle) x 4" x 2-3/4".  The file comes with the bag base pieces, the bag mats, the handle, the sentiment mat, and the celebrate sentiment.  It is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.


Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all your pieces and fold on the score lines.
2.  Adhere the two box base pieces together and then place adhesive on the remaining side tab.
3.  Adhere the tab to the other side of the box then pop the shape in to form.
4.  Close the bottom of the box tucking the tab into the slot.
5.  Adhere your handle in place and then adhere your mats and sentiment.
6.  Finish adding all your mats.  Embellish and fill as desired!

I love this little box!  It is a 7-sided polygon with a hinged lid and mats so you can change its look easily!  It is a great for gift giving or using for a favor box...you can even size it to fit your needs!  As it comes, the box is approximately 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" x 3-3/4".  The file comes with the box base pieces, the hinged lid pieces, and the box mats.  It is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.

2.  Starting with the bottom (larger), place adhesive on the six tabs and begin wrapping the box sides around, adhering the tabs as you go.
3.  Your finished box should look like this.
4.  Next grab your lid piece (smaller).
5.  Place adhesive on the six tabs and adhere the sides around as you did with the bottom.
6.  Your lid should look like this now.

8.  Place adhesive on the large tab.  This goes on the outside of the box, all the way to the bottom so cover generously with adhesive.
9.  Adhere your lid on to one of the panels on the outside of the box as shown.
10. Adhere your larger panel mats in place.
11. Your box will look like this now.  To close the lid, you need to pull apart the sides a bit and then push down.

I sooooo agree with Aussie aNNie! I also love the tutorials as I have a few patterns I've purchased from others and not sure how to use them and that upsets me, so keep up with doing such a great job!
