Inspired by TheMistressT, I went looking for a method of folding my own gift bags. I watched this video tutorial and got the basic idea. I used clear tape instead of glue and they came together quite easily!



The calendar I used was 'Inuit Art' from Dorset Fine Arts. The bags are varying sizes depending on how big the prints are and how deeply I folded the bottoms.



I cut inserts from a cereal box for some extra stability.



This was a very fun project to watch come together, and I can't wait to use them!

Beautiful! I definitely need to use the cardboard in the bottom idea. Smiley

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
