Two Pocket Bag Tutorial

This was a project that was demonstrated at the Louisville Regionals. This is my take on it. You will need to have a 12 X 12 sheet of designer series paper or a 12 X 12 piece of stamped cardstock, sticky strip, ribbon and cardstock for embellishing the front.




Step 1: Take your cardstock and score at 1" and 11"




Be very light handed when scoring the Designer Series Paper so you don't cut it







Step 2: Fold on your score lines and adhere down with SNAIL adhesive.






Step 3: Score at 3 1/2" and at 8 1/2"










Step 4: Fold on Score lines.











Step 5: Fold over other side and adhere down with SNAIL adhesive.










Step 6: Fold in half. To make this easier you can score it at 5".










Step 7: Score at 4 3/4" and 5 1/4". It will be scored at 1/4" on each side of your center fold line.









Step 8: Your center score line will be folded in toward the center of the bag. Score your other lines as well. This will help stabalize your bag so it can stand freely.











Step 9: Add a piece of sticky strip in the center of your bag. I find that if you add a small piece it allows your bag to remain open a bit and it will stand better. A little piece will do it.









Step 10: Remove the liner from your sticky strip and adhere your bag together in the center.










Step 11: Use a punch to make holes to thread your ribbon through. I used the horizontal slit punch, but the 1/8" hole punch will work as well. I find the ribbon lies nice and flat with the horizontal slit punch holes










Step 12: Use mini glue dots to adhere your ribbon together to form handles.







Step 13: Decorate your bag as desired. It can hold a few 3 X 3 Love Notes, a gift card or a small bag of candy.

Thanks for sharing! I tried doing this from the directions in the Demo. challenge forum and stopped trying to make it after ruining 3 sheets of DP. With your step by step photos, it came together in a snap! :)
