Box in a Bag

This is a project I demonstrated at a party on the weekend, it's called a box in a bag and if you would like to make some of your own click here for step by step instructions and photos.  They make excellent gift bags for Christmas, lolly bags for parties etc, and are quite a decent size: they measure 14cm high and have a box base size of 6.5cm square so you really can cram lots of goodies in there. I put some a small stamp, an ink spot and little packet of accessories in mine as a hostess gift and there was still loads of room for more.  You can get 2 from a 12 x 12 " sheet of DSP, so very economical as well.  Be sure to use Sticky Strip or an extra strong adhesive when sticking it all together so it dosen't pop open - that would be a **disaster** :)
