Need a gift bag? How about a stationery holder or party favor? I'm so excited to offer you this new tutorial and template! Originally, I wanted to make a paper version of those fancy-schmancy designer bags with designer initials covering the material, but after making my first sample, the "faux" leather tote with real stitching, I realized how easy it was to give the bag a totally different look. If you don't like elegant or conservative, go casual or just go wild!
Because of it's size, it can hold lots of cards and envelopes; it also makes a great gift bag. The tote comes complete with an inside pocket wide enough to hold a 3" x 3" note card and envelope. The optional coin purse is perfect for holding a "to" and "from" tag.
Another thing I'm excited about is that not only will this tutorial give you a step-by-step instruction with lots of photos, but it's now available in both PDF and SVG files (for those of you who own a personal cutting machine, such as the Cricut Expression or the Silhouette). SVG's are the way to go -- no more cutting with scissors!
