For today, we are working on Day 4 of our 12 Days of Gift Giving.  Today I’m going to show you the Bag/Box/Card combo.  It’s all in one.  

Here is my bag/box/card combo using

PP-0045 Romantic Journey Prints Paper Pack

With a triple fork bow made with

AC-0341 Silver Tinsel (cutest stuff EVER)

AC-0106 Black Licorice Satin Ribbon

AC-0267 Journey Twine Licorice Twist

Added a panel for my card holder

and wah lah….we have our combo complete

With my Make a Wish card!

So now I want to teach you HOW to adapt this to any and all size bags….are you ready?  Check out the video FIRST (if you are viewing this from your email, click here to see it.  You may want to watch the video first.  

Directions to figuring out your topper size:

  1. Measure your bag along the bottom (get that measurement)
  2. Measure your bag along the side (get that measurement)
  3. To those two measurements, you will add how much you want for your hangover
    1. My bag along the bottom is 8″
    2. My Bag along the side is 5″,  I like to subtract one inch so it’s a bit smaller = 4″
    3. I would like my “handover” sides to be 1 1/2″ wide all the way around
    4. So the long side would be 8″ + 1.5″ + 1.5″ = 11″
    5. The short side would be 4″ + 1.5″ + 1.5″ = 7″
    6. So my box base would be 7″ x 11″ and score all the way around at 1 1/2″

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking time to visit with me today!  I do appreciate all of you!  I hope you enjoy your day.
