The Pixie Cottage's Saturday Tutorial

Hi ladies, 

Welcome to our first November Pixie Cottage Saturday Tutorial.  Francy and I will be working on creating  fun and interesting tutorials for you, twice a month.  Please help me welcome Francy, our new Tutorial Pixie.  I am sure you will just ADORE her first project for you.   

Pretty Bag Tutorial

Hello everyone, this tutorial is about this little bag.

The materials I used to make this bag are:
-The Pixie Cottage Stamp: " Cupcakes Set"
-Bazzil Cardstock
-Patterned paper
-Sizzix Buckles
-embellishments

 
Use a Bazzil Cardstock size: 26cm x 24 cm and mark the lines as shown below.

 
Now cut as shown in the picture and fold along the dotted lines. The black lines are bent outward, the red lines are bent inward.

 
Cut another piece of Bazzil cardstock, this will be used for the bag closure.


 
Follow the picture below for size information and cut where indicated.

 
These are the two pieces of Bazzil cardstock that you will need for the bag.


 
After putting the patterned paper on the exterior of the bag put the double stick tape were on the sides to be assembled.





This is what the base of the bag looks like assembled.

 
Before attaching the top, which is the closure of the bag, I decorate it with this wonderful 

 
Insert the handle as indicated below. The size of the handle is: 10cm x 2 cm. 
Fold the strip in the middle of  the 2 cm to create the handle.

 
Finally use the "velcro" to create the closure.


We hope that you enjoy this tutorial and we look look to seeing your creations. If you use this tutorial be sure to leave us a comment with a link.
