Designer Bags

I absolutely LOVE these designer bags! They are a breeze to make and they are so cute! I found a wonderful tutorial Diana Gibbs ( and Cambria's blogs that have a more visual and detailed description of the bags. You create a base that is 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" (scored at 1" from each edge). You then adhere the 5 1/2" x 11" designer paper to the base and secure at the center seam using sticky strip tape. Cut a 1 1/2" x 11" piece of designer paper and secure at the bottom. Cut (2) round tabs and secure at the top and add an eyelet; decorate as desired. This is one of the projects we'll do at my upcoming mother/daughter stamp camp!
