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!
