All the 7's Vintage Vogue bag

I saw this bag demonstrated by Monica Gale at our Stampin' Up Demonstrator training day in Sheffield recently. She used the gorgeous Vintage Vogue stamp set from the Mini Catalogue.

I call this bag the 'All the 7's' as it is so easy to make. Take a piece of A4 cardstock and score along the landscape edges at 7cm, 14cm, 21cm and 28cm. The thin piece that is left on the end is the flap and the bit you put your sticky strip on to fasten it together. Turn the card to portrait and score at 7cm down one side to form the bottom of the bag then cut along the first score lines up to this 7cm score line and cut off that little piece at the end (just upto this 7cm score line). Assemble, pinch in the top to shape and add a handle/tie of your choice to the top. I used the Round Tab punch cut in half with a hole punched out of both pieces. These were stapled to the top of the bag and then a piece of ribbon threaded through the holes and tied in a bow.

I demonstrated this bag at a party yesterday and the ladies loved it.
