The Pixie Cottage's Saturday Tutorial

Brown Paper Bag Wallet 

Materials Required 
Brown Paper Bag (Lunch Bag)
Design Paper

Step One
Cut the Paper Bag length wise at 3 1/2"

Step Two
a) Tape the flap (bottom of the lunch bag) down
b) Tape the open end (top of the lunch bag) together

Step Three
Score the paper bag at 4" and at 8 1/2" as in photo below. Note position of bag in photo below.

Step Four
Fold the paper bag along scored lines, as in photo below. 

Step Five
Cut 6 pieces of design paper and adhere to paper bag.
2 pieces sized 3 1/4" x 3 3/4" (for outside and inside left panel)
2 pieces sized 4 1/4 x 3 1/4"  (for inside and back center panel)
2 pieces sized 3 1/4" x 1 3/4" (for outside and inside right panel)
Close up shot of inside.  Very similar to a wallet!

Step Six
Get creative!  Stamp, stick, color, punch, etc..... Once you have finished close the wallet with a paper clip, or a binder clip as I have below.  I added a nice little ribbon to mine to make it a bit more fancier.
Given the stamp theme, I am adding a Starbucks card to my wallet.  You can also put money in yours for that hard to shop for loved one.  The fact that you went out of your way to create a fancy wallet for the money really shows the recipient just how much you do care.

Happy Crafting!  
As you all know, this is the last Saturday Tutorial for the summer.  We should be gearing up for September, so be sure to pop in for tidbits of info as to what the start up date will be.  

Thank you Michelle for the amazing opportunities over the past years.  I have truly grown as a result of being on The Pixie Cottage Design Team!  Your are one amazing woman who really cares about the people in your life.
