Small Gift Bag – Gift Card Holder

Today’s project is a small gift bag I designed for my 3D swap for the Stampin’ Up! Alaska Incentive trip.


It’s made with a 6 x 6 piece of designer paper, and is the perfect size for a gift card, or a business card or Ghirardelli Chocolates!


Once you make one you are going to want to make one with all your designer series paper designs!
