In the last post I said that Mum had bought a plain bag for the engagement gift and asked me to alter it, so here it is!
It's cerise pink and I found it very hard to photograph, it's definately not as bright as the photos show. As the original bag was too tall (the gift was lost inside it!) I resized it. Here's a quick tutorial....
Step 1 - Remove the handles and cut 3" off the top of the bag (or however much you want, to make it smaller)
Step 2 - Mark 3 cms down from the top and score across with a bone folder/embossing stylus and ruler, on the back and front. You could also use the scoring blade on your trimmer.
Step 3 - Fold along score lines and tuck the top edge in.
Step 4 - Using the cut off piece as a template, mark the position of the holes and punch with a crop-a-dile or hole punch.
Now all that's left is to decorate and add your handles!
I used sizzix dies (again!!) to decorate and some stickles glitter glue for sparkle.
Hope the instructions make sense :)
