Zinnia Gift Bag

Hi everyone!  It's Taylor here today, sharing a cute little Tuck and Close Bag I whipped up the other day. Creative Cuts and More actually has several variations of this design; this bag is #01.  I made my bag a bit differently, because I wanted the flap to be shown on the front.  I measured it all out, masked off the handles since I didn't want to stamp on them, lined up my stamp so that the image would overlap perfectly, stopped to take something away from my toddler....and stamped the image wrong!!  Oops!

Why am I 'fessing up to making this wrong, and still sharing it with you?  I think it is important to not be a perfectionist all the time!  Let's face it - we all make mistakes, and it teaches a good lesson.  Take what you've got and make it work for you!  I added a big bow on the flap, which doesn't keep the bag from opening, and you really don't notice that I stamped the image wrong on it.

When assembled, this bag (which does not need any adhesive to construct) measures 3-1/4” wide x 5-1/2” high x 1-1/2” deep.  It's perfect for holiday gifts!
