"Cuddling Polar Bears Christmas Sandwich Giftbag & Tutorial"

Todays post is for Angels Landing! The DT was challenge to make a giftbag or something for Giftgiving! I wanted to share with all of you another Giftbag idea I came up with.

For this gift bag I used a Sandwich bag!!! Yes a SANDWICH BAG....LOL
Funny thing is I didnt have any brown lunch bags, or anything else, and though hmmmmm :) maybe this will work!
On this bag I used the large spellbinders, and plastic sandwich bag, ribbon, cuddlebug embossing folder,buttons, MS punch, copics, hot glue gun, eyelets!
To begin you will first want to cut your 2 dies, for the front and the back.

Next you need to cut your sandwich bag down to 4 inches, yes it will look a little taller but once you have it together you will see it wont be too tall :)

Next put your double sided red sticky tape on both of the insides, that way you can add your bag!

Here you have it together, and you will want to make a bottom strip to help hold it together.
this strip should measure 5 1/2 long by 3/4 of an inch wide. add sticky strip to it, and then attach!!!

Next I did a smaller die cut and ran it through the cuddlebug with the snowflakes :) and attached it.

Here you will want to adde you holes and your eyelets.

I wanted to show how I attach my ribbon before I cut it.

In this pic I still havent cut my ribbon. I kinda measure to give some extra to tie :) then cut, and do the same as I did in the picture above :)

I added 2 bows with the hot glue gun, my gun is from the 80's its OLD!!!!LOL

Here you will want to just embellish the front as desired :)
On mine I used these sweet Polar bears from Angels Landing. I also used the martha stewart branch punch, and some snowflake buttons. I use a shank remover to remove the shanks off of the backs of the buttons!!

Here is a side view to see the bag!!! I didnt want to cover it :)

Hope you liked my tutorial!!! Let me know what ya think:) And thank you for stopping by and looking!!!!

If you use my tutorial could all I ask is that you give proper credit!! Thank you again!!! :)

Who else would have thought of using a sandwich bag? You are always coming up with creative ideas, Cheryl. I especially like how you have nestled this pair of cubs in the punched branches and snowflakes. So adorable.
