I'm very sorry I promised a tutorial last handmade Monday but I have had a mountain of homework! So here it is, paper gift bag tutorial.
Take your flat piece of paper, and fold it lengthways.
Then unfold it and fold widthways.
Fold the corner into the middle like you're making a paper hat.
And the other corner...
Here comes the tricky bit, push the outer sides of the triangles into the middle and flatten them down, to create the same shape just with the folds on the inside.
Take the front flap on one side and fold it into the middle.
Flip over and repeat, you should end up with something like this.
Open it out...
Sorry for the delay, anyway I'm off to check out the other blogs on handmade Monday!
Ps Its only 37 sleeps till the big day!
