We R Memories Punch Board Gift Bags

Hello Blogger Friends,

I am back to do  more paper crafts.  I made this bag with my own pattern.

It took me sometime to make it.  So when I saw the We R memories gift bag punch board on sale at Joann Fabric online I was super excited and order it right away.

When I saw how small the board is 5 1/8"w x 9" H, I knew this board won't make the bag size that I needed.
   I need lots of big bags 7"x 3" x 9".  I thought this punch board will help me make the bags  faster.  It turned out the provided templates make three small gift bags.

small- 2 5/8" w x 2" D x H ( the high is adjustable)
 medium - 3" w x 2" D x H
Large - 3 5/8" w x 2" x H

Here are the bags from smallest to biggest.  

 I put some numbers together.   It required 2 pieces of 12 x 12 patterns. I was able to make bigger bags using the punch board template. The size of the bag remained 2". 
It took me longer than I like.

 I played around with some numbers.  I made 7"w x 3" D x 9" H bag without using the punch board and it was so easy.  Here are the bags. 

These bags fold flat.   I''ll share a tutorial when I have more time.

Until next time.....

All your bags look wonderful. The larger ones look better than anything you can buy in the store
