Gift Bag & Accordion Flower {Freebie}

To make this gift bag, you will need:

– a plain paper bag, color at your choice

– paper doily

– Accordion flower, you can get the template and cutting files at ScrapOrchard for free. It is from Wendybird Designs.

– a scallop circle, for mine I punched with medium size scallop punch from EK Success

– tag

– ribbon

Basically you just glue them all together on the paper bag, like you see on the picture.

To make the Accordin flower, I cut a 12×12 scrapbook paper with my Silhouette Cameo.

– First open Silhouette Studio software (you download for here).

– Open the SVG file from the folder you saved it.

– You will see the shapes: 2 paper strips and 2 sizes of circles.

– To cut them, you need to add cut line by click on Cut window. You can find it on your top right.

– Send to Silhouette, adjust the setting based on what kind of paper you will use. I used pattern scrapbook paper, I cut it with setting: blade #3, speed #3 and thickness #33.

– Peel all the cut shapes off the cutting mat, be careful when you peel them.

– Fold the 2 strips of paper zigzag and glue them together, make a circle.

– For glueing the circles on the top and the bottom, you need to hold them right side up, it’s kindda look like a party hat, push in the middle gently until it’s flat and circle. You need to arrange the circle accordion and hold at the edge when you glue the 2 circles on the top and at the bottom. For mine, I glued the small circle at the bottom and I pinched a different pattern scrapbook paper with my scallop punch and glued it on top of it.

– You can add any embellishments you like. But for mine I added a tag with a small ribbon on it.
