Two Pocket Tote Bag Tutorial

They're quick & easy to make & use just 1 sheet of Stampin' Up!'s
gorgeous double-sided Designer Series Paper. (Here I've used Petals & Paisleys) If you want to make one of these with matching Gift cards using Patterned Paper from the New Summer Mini Catalogue, email me to reserve a seat for my December classes! I understand December can be a busy month for us all, so here is the step-by-step tutorial, I wouldn't want you to miss out!

Step 1. Score a piece of 12x12 Designer Series Paper at 1' & 11" (apply very little pressure)

Step 2. Apply snail adhesive to the scored 1" strips and fold inward
along the score lines.

Step 3. Turn the paper lengthways & score 3.5", from each side.

Step 4. Fold the paper on the score lines then apply snail adhesive
along one edge and adhere together.

Step 5. With open ends on the sides, score at 5"(you may want to
apply a little more pressure or score on both sides as you are
scoring a few layers)

Step 6. Score at 4 1/2" & 5 3/4" (you will now have 3 scored lines side by side)

Step 7. Fold as shown in the picture, making sure you have the
join on the inside when folded.

Step 8. Apply snail or double sided tape to join the two sides of the
tote together.

Step 9. Punch 2 holes on each side (Horizontal Slot)
and tie ribbon for handles.

Now you just need to stamp, embellish & fill.
Have fun with it!
