Step Two

Now use your Cutterpillar Crease to put the score lines into your bag. Place the long side onto the CP Crease and score at 2”,5”,7” & 10” now turn your card to the short side and score at 2” & 7”.

Step Three

Burnish all your score lines to create solid folds in the cardstock, then on your long side trim off 7” to leave a 3” flap for the top of the bag. The 1” strip at the end of your card will be used to secure the bag together, trim a small corner off each end of the strip to create a tab.

Step Seven

On the inner side of the top flap create pencil marks at 1” and 2” wide and 1” high, this will be your guide for punching your holes for ribbon or twine. Using a crop-a-dile or hole punch cut your holes. Now fold your flap down the right way and mark your holes again to punch on the body of the bag. Once you have marked the bag, punch out your holes.
