MMM Mid-week Motivation.

This week's challenge of FLORAL TAGS continues our June theme of FLOWERS. So this week's motivational tutorial shows you how to make a Gift Bag with a matching Tag - all decorated with flowers of course.
Here goes
First take two pieces of paper or thin card - 8" x 8".

Score at 1/2", 1 1/2" and 2 1/2". Turn the paper 90 degrees and score at 1 1/2". Repeat on the second piece of paper and crease the score lines with a bone folder.
Fold and cut both pieces as shown above.

Again as shown above fold in the corners and secure with a glue stick - repeat on second piece of paper.

Apply glue to the side panels and stick together to form the bag shape.

Fold the scored bottom sections in and secure with glue. You may find it helps to add a piece of paper to the inside of the bag to help it hold it's shape.

Carefully add some holes to thread the ribbon.
Your bag is now ready to be decorated and adorned with embellishments of your choice.

Don't forget to add your tag and you are good to go!
