A Week of Wildflower Fields - Day 1, Magnetic Closure Bag

Can you believe its February already?  That leaves just 2 months of Sale-A-Bration left!  That might seem like a long time, but believe me, it soon flies by - I cant believe my baby is already four and a half months old (and teething, hence my recent absence in blogging - sorry).

So this week I have decided to have a theme week, celebrating one of our Sale-A-Bration products, and I will continue to do this for the duration of Sale-A-Bration, with our first featured product being.....

141022 - Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper

There is so much you can do with a sheet of DSP, especially when your DSP is of a good quality like all of the Stampin' UP! DSP!  And here is one of my favourites, the Magnetic Closure Bag (with thanks to Pootles for the inspiration).

You never know when you'll need a gift bag!  This sweet little bag measures 1" x 2" x 4" (2.5cm x 5cm x 10cm) and is made from a piece of DSP measuring 4" x 12" (10cm x 30cm).

Score the long side at 4", 5" and 9" (10cm, 12.5cm and 22.5cm), and the short side at 1" and 3" (2.5cm and 7.5cm), then cut as above.  The decorative end is obtained by using the Scalloped Tag Topper.

Fold and stick, as above, using Tombow or Fast Fuse (Snail is not strong enough to hold this gift bag together), then pinch the sides together to create the gusset.

The magnetic clasp is created by using two 8x1mm Neodymium Disk Magnets, attached to the bag and flap using Mini Glue Dots, with the magnets being covered by a 1/2" disk of matching DSP, created by using the 1/2" Circle Punch, to prevent the paper tearing when you go to open the bag (these magnets are STRONG).

The bow is then created by using the Bow Builder Punch, stuck together using Tombow, then added to the bag with a Mini Glue Dot.

Here is the full list of products used to create this project:
