Today I’m sharing a couple of boxes that I’ve made. My daughter wanted me to create a big fancy box that she can give to a swim teammate so I immediately went to Mixed Up Craft to see what I could make quickly. She chose the Barrel Topped Acetage Gift Bag (and one other but I have yet to make that one).
The bag is really easy to make but I did change a few things. First I decided to use cardstock instead of acetate because a) cardstock is easier, b) much of the acetate was covered to hide the adhesive, and c) I’m down to one Window Sheet. Second after making my first bag, I decided that it does need a score line for the lid to open well. The blue bag doesn’t have a score line because of this, the top was pulling away when opened. I added a strip of adhesive to keep it attached but the score line on the white bag works so much better. Also for the second bag, I layered the top before attaching it to the bag. The 5 1/8″ x 12″ cardstock is scored at 3″ and 5″, the patterned paper at 1 7/8″.
I used Velcro dots to keep the bag closed this is causing my gray layer to bend when I seperate them. For the second bag I layered up three circles on the front to prevent this from happening.
