Gift Bag Pop Up Card

This is probably one of my all-time favorites; especially when gift cards are so popular, this is a perfect card to go along with it. Easy to make and I know you’ll be using this style a lot, just like me.

Let’s Get Started

  1. I used a 5″ x 7″ card from 100 lb./280-300 gsm for my base. For the gift bag, I used DSP (Mintay/Time of Wonders. Trim a piece 4″ x 10 1/2″. Place on your scoreboard and score as shown: along the 10 1/2″ side up–1/2″ – 1″ – 5″ – 5 1/2″ – 6″ and 10″. Next, turn the paper with the 4″ side up and score at 1/2″ – 3 1/4″.

2. Trim away the sections as indicated, by red lines, on the pattern above. Add tear & tape along the bottom 1/2″-inch edge as shown with the right side facing you.

3. Fold the piece in half and make the holes needed for the handles on the 3/4-inch side, below the score line. I use a ruler to measure in about 1″ from either side. Use a hole punch or Croc-a-dial. Measure & cut two pieces of twine or ribbon about 3 1/2 inches for the handles.

4. Open the piece up and thread the twine or ribbon through the holes. Use tear & tape to hold down the twine, below the score line. Trim the twine and add another piece of tear & tape at the top and fold down to finish off the edge.

5. Add a piece of tear & tape on the side flap and bring the bag together forming a “gusset” at each side.

6. Now, all you have to do is adhere it to the center of the card. Open your card and center the bag as shown. Peel the tear & tape from the bag and close the card. Press to adhere. Open the card and repeat for the back of the card.

I made this card a few weeks ago on FaceBook, but unfortunately, it has been deleted by FB:-( I hope this helps, but if you need more detail help, go to YouTube and search “Gift Bag Pop Up” for a video. Have fun!

  2. Hi Susan. Always enjoy your demos. Thank you for posting this on your blog. I was sorry to see your new format on Facebook making us log in to enjoy your weekly demos, since I don’t have a facebook account. Will you ever be posting demos on YouTube besides the ones you do for Spellbinders? I know you mentioned you may try that. If not, just wanted to let you know I’ve enjoyed watching you over the years and will still keep an eye out for your upcoming releases and demos from Spellbinders, but will miss your weekly inspiration. Take care and thanks for sharing your talents.🌺😊💐

  3. Sissy, thank you so much Hp for the instructions on this projects. I know it is a lot of work on your end to do this. I appreciate you more than you know❤️

  4. In looking at your pop-up poinsettia bag, I noticed the poinsettia embossing folder. I have looked on Spellbinders and cannot find this folder. Do you know where I can purchase this embossing folder?
