Making a gift bag using a punch board

This year make your dad feel extra special by creating a gift bag that looks like his favorite shirt! We R Memory Keepers has an extensive line of punch boards that make it easy to create everything from banners to partyware to the gift bag we are making here.

Your score lines and punches will vary depending on the size bag you would like to create.

Step 1: Trim paper to the size indicated on the Gift Bag Punch Board.

Step 2: Score and punch as instructed, and repeat, moving along one side of the paper. To see this in action watch the video here.

Step 3: Once your score lines and punches are complete you will see that you have just created the base of your bag. Start folding at score lines and the bag will begin to take shape.

Step 4: Use adhesive to keep tabs at bottom and sides of bag in place.

Step 5: Use a pencil to draw a shape resembling a shirt collar. I place a small piece of paper over the top of my bag and drew this piece by hand. It's ok if it's not exact! Adhere shapes in place.

Step 6: Draw and cut out a tie shape from patterned paper and adhere in place.

Step 7: Fill bag and adhere closed.

The Gift Bag Punch Board makes bags for all occasions, and is sure to inspire you to add an extra special personal touch to your gifts!

Happy Crafting!
