Doily Bags



I spent a while getting some doily shapes cut out for use when I "got around to it" and had a look to see what new things I could make with them. I realised they were just the ideal size to make cute little bags - even better when you can use the matching doily shape and strip punch for a handle :)




I've threaded some fine gold ribbon through the doily strip on the handle this time



For the little bags in this post I've used the Tonic Studios Butterfly Square Die with the Butterfly Strip punch and the Doily Circle die with the matching Doily Strip punch
The stamps are Peony, Fuchsia and  Rose from the Pick of the Bunch set also by Tonic Studios
All adhesives used in the project are from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.


Here's how I made the bag but you could use any combination of these doily dies and punches with any stamp for decoration...have a go!

1. Die cut 2 Doily shapes


2. Cut a strip of card 15cm x 6cm and score at 1.5cm and 4.5cm (lengthwise)
Snip the card into the centre at 5cm and 10cm


3. Score across the middle at 5cm and 10cm


4a...Use the small Dodz to stick the little box corners together.


4b. Close up


5. Use the Crafty Power Tape around the sides of the "box"


6. Fix one side of the box to the doily die


7. Then attach the other.


8. Punch a handle using the Butterfly strip punch.


9. Use E-Z Dots (Mini Perrnanent) to attach the handle to the bag.


10. Ready to decorate
