Bridal Shower Kraft Gift Bag Tutorial

As we continue projects using BoBunny's Kraft Gift Bags, we have a treat in store for you! Today Lisa is sharing a Bridal Shower Wishing Well project along with a tutorial. Wouldn't this be a fun project to do for any occasion? What great way to share recipes, thoughts or good wishes. What could you use this idea for??

Recipe Card in Kraft Bag for Bridal Shower Wishing Well... Tutorial by Lisa Gregory

 To cover the Kraft bag, cut a piece of patterned paper just slightly smaller than the surface of the bag, ink the edges and adhere the paper to the flap side of the bag.

For the flap,I used a die which happens to be the perfect size for the flap on the bag. I also cut  the same shape using thin chipboard as well. This will give the flap some weight when adhered to the paper. Ink the edges attach the trimmed die cut to the flap of the bag.

Attach a flower to the middle of the die-cut flap.

 This is the underside of the flap. Place a chipboard circle. behind the flower. This will give it additional weight to keep the flap down without the use of magnets. It also gives it a nice clean finish.

Using a hole punch, punch out a half circle in the top middle of the bag. Now trim a recipe card so that it slides in the bag with ease. The half circle punch out makes it easy to pull out the recipe card.

Now time to decorate the outside of the bag. Die cut a small tag and layer it. I placed some lined patterned paper to write a small sentiment on. Do some random stamping and add the letters to the side of the bag.

This is the finished Recipe in a Gift Bag, for a Bridal Shower Wishing Well. I think this is great idea to collect recipes for the bride to be. The concept could be applied to different themes. How about tips for new moms at a baby shower!!! The ideas are endless!!
