Flap Top Mini Gift Bag Birthday Bonanza Style

I wish my girls were still little and having birthday parties so that I could make these as favors.  They are easy to whip up and the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper make them FUN!

The sentiment is from Perennial Birthdays and the images were trimmed from the Birthday Bonanza paper (both are retiring June 2).  There are lions, koalas, and toucans (see above) in the pack.

This is the view from the top of the box when opened.  The sides pinch in for an extra decorative touch (because 5-year-olds notice details like that).  I first saw this box made by Susan Levasseur of WOW Nola Creations.


The Cast of Supplies

Gather up: Paper Snips, cardstock, Designer Series paper, Bone Folder, Velcro dots, and image(s) to decorate the box front.  Measurements are given below.

The photo above shows the template measurements, where to score, and what the cardstock will look like once you've cut away the unneeded sections.  The spaces marked with a red X are where Tear N Tape is applied (don't forget about the narrow 1/2" flap on the far right of the photo).

Measurements:

  • Basic Grey cardstock - 10-3/8"x7"; score on long side at 3-1/2", 5", 8-1/2", and 10"; score on the short side at 1-1/2" and 5-1/2"
  • Mango Melody cardstock - 3"x3" (box front); 3-1/4"x1-3/8" (box flap)
  • Birthday Bonanza DSP - 2-7/8"x2-7/8" (box front); 2-7/8"x1-1/4" (box flap)


Tips:
  • Make a practice template with copy paper or old cardstock before diving into this project.  You may save paper by doing this!
  • Use the Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners of the flap closure (the top left section of the cardstock in the photo above) and the cardstock and Designer Series Paper glued on the flap.
  • Trim the bottom tabs at an angle so they close neatly and are tucked away.
