Handmade Gift BagGift bags are easy to cut and assemble, making them perfect for last minute gift giving. Cut at full size, the gift bag measures approx. 4"x5.25"x1.75". It is easy to resize the cut file making it smaller, too. The little bee gift bag measures just 4" tall making it perfect for a gift card.
The bag handles are made out of two strips of washi tape stuck together. This striped washi tape from Doodlebug creates a gingham pattern when two strips are put together. I attached the handles with some colored mini staples and a tiny stapler, but you could also attach them with adhesive or eyelets.
Embellish your bag with die cuts, tags, and twine. These cute little bees are part of Pebbles' Garden Party collection. Aren't they adorable?
To assemble the bag, start by folding the edges of the bag and adhering the seam. Turn the bag upside down and fold in the sides, creating two flaps on either side of the bag. Apply adhesive around the edges of the flaps.
Fold the flaps in and adhere together to create the bag bottom. TIP: Place one hand inside the bag to help create a good seal.
Gently pinch the sides of the bag together to crease the sides of the bag. Now your bag is ready to embellish and stuff with goodies!
Silhouette SVG TutorialWhen you open the free gift bag cut file svg, it will look like this--a big, blue rectangle. So far, so good.
Next, you want to select the entire blue area by dragging a box around rectangle with your mouse. When the entire area is selected, little white squares will show up around the border of the rectangle.
After the entire area is selected, right click on the rectangle and select Group from the menu. Doing this ensures that all of the gift bag svg cut file components will resize proportionately.
Now that everything is grouped, you want to be able to see the cut lines. Click on the blade icon near the upper right corner of your screen. In the Cut Settings menu, select Advanced. Black dashes and lines will appear showing where your Silhouette will cut.
Select the entire gift bag cut file by clicking on the blue rectangle once. Click and drag the corners to resize your file to fit on the cut mat. Make the gift bag cut file even smaller to create a bitty bag. After your file is resized, select your medium from the menu and you are ready to cut!
