Make an impact when you give a gift card with this lovely and easy to make Gift Bag Pop Up Card for any occasion!
It looks like an ordinary card from the front.
The surprise is on the inside.
To make the shopping bag, start with a 3″ x 11″ piece of Designer Series Paper. (I used the Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper, one of the free choices with a $50 order during SU! Saleabration in January and February 2022.)
Score @ 1/2″, 1″, 5″, 5-1/2″, 6″, 10″ and 10-1/2″.
Rotate your paper and score @ 3/8″ from the bag bottom.
Cut off the bottom 3/8″ pieces between the score lines like this.
Fold up and punch holes for the handles like this. Insert twine.
Cover the holes and keep the twine attached with small pieces of Designer Series Paper.
Attach the ends and fold up the bag. (The short video below will show each of these steps quickly.)
Add adhesive (I chose Tear ‘N Tape) along the bottom flaps and attach to the inside of the card, one side at a time. Place it close to the fold line of your card.
How easy was that?
