One of the challenges on Card Maker’s Card Swap this week was to make a tag, or re-purpose a bag. Well, I made a pouch with a tag to match.
I had an oddly sized magazine (got a subscription to Food Networks magazine for my father-in-law for his birthday) and I didn’t want to just put it in a gift bag, so I made a pouch. First, I found some kraft wrapping paper that was pretty heavy, then measured it out and cut it.
Then I folded the paper along the edges of the magazine.
As the paper had a bit of gloss to it, the tape didn’t stick as well as I had hoped and I wound up putting some regular tape over the edges to hold it together. Then I folded the edges of the top part to make a flap. When I figured out how large I wanted the flap, I folded it over and used double-sided tape to make it.
When I put the magazine back in, I smoothed everything out. Then put my navy ribbon around the pouch and put my faux closure on. To make my closure, I cut out two round pieces of brown card stock, attached those with 3D tape and wrapped some twine around them.
Thanks for spending some time with me today!
