. Below are the steps and materials I used.
When you lay out your bag (size of a lunch bag works well) , the flap on the bottom of the bag should be to the left. The open end of the bag should be to your right. This is the INSIDE of the card. You'll see how the flap is turned into a small pocket for a surprise ! The opening can be another little pocket for something special for the recipient of this absolutely adorable card. As you're looking at the flattened bag(flap side up) , fold bag in half. This is the size of the card you're making.
The next 4 pictures above show how I decorated the cover of the card (bag) using the solid and patterned paper; flower embellishments; buttons and a stamp with the message "SO MANY CANDLES".
The next 7 pictures show how I decorated the left inside of the card. One of the pictures (with my finger in it) shows you what you need to do to brad only through one layer of the flap . This way you wont have your brad show on the front.
You can embellish as much or as little as you wish. As you can see, I just can't embellish enough. The little bookmark shown fits right into that side pocket that is shown.
The next picture shows how to finish the inside right of the card(bag). This isn't necessary, but I just wanted to give it a little edge. As you can see you, just glue the strip on both sides of the opening. Then we ready to decorate the right side. Finished that side off with the last sentiment "SO LITTLE CAKE" Next up is the back cover. This was covered with the same color as the cover and embellished using pop dots so that I could slip my ribbon through the front and back to give me something to close up the card .
Finally I have pictures of the inside and outside of the finished card, along with the finished card.
Really Reasonable Ribbon
Stamp of choice
