Welcome back, normal service, kind of, has resumed as my computer is back.  I am however behind…… but we will get there! Yesterday was a super busy day with Craft and Chat at 2pm and Craft-a-long at 7.30pm.  We had fun chatting and crafting! The replay for Craft-a-long will be out first thing tomorrow.

I made a couple of gift bags at Craft and Chat yesterday, they are made from a 6″ x 6″ or a 12″ x 12″ piece of patterned paper, I love the over sized ribbon to close the bag too.

This is the side view of the bag, it makes a curved triangle.

Super easy measurements and folds and the basis of so many of the bags I share. The best bit is they fold flat for storage too.
