Pinspired- Inspiration from our Pinterest Board by Nancy

Hello crafters! Nancy here today to show you a project I did that was inspired by the Scor-Pal Pinterest Board - a Box in a Bag! The first one shown is a little larger than the one below it.

I can't believe that in all the years of paper crafting that I have never made one of these. I was inspired by this piece.

I decided to go with a nautical theme because I recently purchased a pad of 12" paper at Michael's called "Coastal Cove" that included beachy and nautical papers.

You start by making a box - the "bag" portion of this project will be wrapped around this box, so you really don't see the box unless you look inside.

For the smaller project you will need a piece of cardstock measuring 3 x 3 and score at .5" all the way around.

For the medium piece, use a 4.5 x 4.5 piece of cardstock and score at 1" all around.

You can find the Scor-Pal here and Scor-Tape here.

Cut the tabs and add scor-tape as shown.

Assemble to make the box

Now you will begin the bag portion where you wrap decorative paper around the outside of the box.

For the small project use a piece of decorative paper measuring 3.5 x 8.5.

For the medium project use a piece of decorative paper measuring 5.5 x 11.

Place Scor-Tape on the inside of the decorative paper along the bottom and on one side.

Take your box about halfway on one side and start wrapping the paper around it. Take care to line up the bottom of the box with the bottom edge of the paper.

Continue moving the box along the bottom edge of the paper ..

Keep wrapping the box around the paper until you have completely covered the box.

Now you can start decorating. I used a small piece of coordinating paper and wrapped it around the bottom of the bag, and also used the same paper to make handles.

Add decorative elements and ribbon or twine to the front and you are done!

Here is a close up look at how I embellished mine.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you check out the Scor-Pal Pinterest board for more inspiration!
