Hexagon Gift Bag with Video Tutorial

Today’s project is a Hexagon Gift Bag that I shared during this week’s Weekly Wednesday Facebook Live!

Here’s a side view:

And here’s a different angle:

How cool is this gift bag/box?!? I was inspired by Nadine Weiner at StampinClub.de, but didn’t find any measurements on her post, so I came up with my own measurements to maximize paper. You can get 2 of these out of 1 piece of 8-1/2″ x 11″ cardstock – yay! It takes a half sheet (just like an A2 card) so there’s no waste!

Check out this alternative idea using the Window Box Thinlits (thanks, Kathy Brown for the idea!):

Wouldn’t that be an amazing luminary with a battery-operated tea light?!?

Here’s my video tutorial:

And here’s the template:

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed weekend!

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Blackberry Bliss cardstock – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
    • Score along the 8-1/2″ side at 2″, 4″, 6″, and 8″
    • Rotate clockwise and score along the 5-1/2″ side at 2″
    • Create diagonal scorelines (see tutorial) and then score at 3″ and 7″ along the 8-1/2″ side, but only down to the intersection of the diagonal score lines
