The EOS brand products are high quality skin care products that are quite good for your skin. The hand cream comes in assorted scents and the small containers are just the right size for storing in a purse, diaper bag, desk drawer or glove box in the car. So how about tucking one into this cute little bag as a gift ~ for teachers, co-workers or child care provider as a unexpected “thank you for all you do” gift. Or maybe for your favorite gardener at the beginning of this spring season? 🙂 ∗Please note: this little bag measures 4 7/8″ x 3″ x 1″.
You will need: patterned paper, cutting tools of choice, scoring board, bone folder, adhesive, ready made tag or supplies to create your own.
Cut the patterned paper to 5″ x 10 3/4″. Score on the long side at 4 7/8″ and at 5 7/8″. Score on the short side at 1″ and at 4″.
Fold and crease with a bone folder on the score lines. Cut on the two short score lines on the long side and mitre them just a bit. This makes for neater and easier folding tabs. Do this to both sides.
Add adhesive to the tabs and fold up the back of the bag and press to the tabs.
Add adhesive to the sides of the front of the bag. Press onto the folded sides of the back section making sure to line up the edges to the folds. Use the bone folder from the inside to press the sides to the adhesive.
Pinch the top of the bag together while pressing in gently from the sides. Add a tag to the front and tie a ribbon around to keep it shut. ∗Please note: you could also punch holes through the top and add ribbon handles or use a decorative clothespin/binder clip for the closure.
There you go! A quick and easy gift to show someone that you appreciate them or for any occasion.
