Gift Idea!

I made this Gift Set for my friend Bette. She is such a sweetie!
I learned how to make the Double Pocket Bag at the Anaheim Regionals.
I put the cards & envelopes in a medium cello bag, tied it up with a bow, and placed it in one of the pockets. I put a personalized card in the other pocket.

Directions for the Double Pocket Bag:
1.Score your 12x12 Designer Paper at 1" &11"
2.Fold on score line and adhere, showing the reverse side of the paper.
3.Rotate DP and score the 12" side at 3-1/2 & 8-1/2.
4.Fold on score lines.
5.Adhere overlapping part to create a flet tube.
6.Score 12" side at 4-1/2", 5", & 5-1/2".
7.Fold all score lines. The 5" score line will be a mountain fold. The other 2 will be valley folds.
8.Place Sticky Strip at the center of the inside of bag.
9.Adhere bag together.
10.Using Horizontal Slot Punch, punch 2 holes through the top layer of folded paper. Repeate on other side.
11.Thread ribbon through holes and fasten with 4 brads.

Coordinating card for my friend.
