Cute Carrier {Tutorial}

Here's a quick how-to for the Cute Carrier.
Step 1
Cut a 5x12 inch strip. Fold the strip in half making a 5x6 inch rectangle and run it through the Big Shot making 2 scallop envelope die cuts.
Fold on all creases, folding the scallop flap opposite of the side and bottom flaps.

Step 2
Cut 2 strips in the remaining cardstock measuring 3 1/4x12 inches.
Score strips at 2 inches from the bottom.
Punch a handle using the large oval punch at the opposite ends. (see photo above)

Step 3
Place adhesive on the flaps of the envelopes and adhere the side envelope flaps to the 3 1/4 strips.
Fold in bottom flaps and adhere.

Step 4
Cut a 2 1/4 inch strip in coordinating designer paper or cardstock and adhere around the bottom portion of the carrier, going under the scallop flaps. This will not reach all the way around, so cut and 2 1/4x2 inch piece to fill in the gap.
Adhere the scallop flaps to the side to keep them down. (no photo for this step, oops)

Step 5
Decorate.

Tip: Run a strip of ribbon through the handle and attach to the bottom of the carrier with double sided tape, then using a different strip of ribbon, tie a bow just below the handle. Tell the recipient to peel the ribbon from the bottom to make it easier to open and the packaging stays nice and pretty.

Place adhesive on the flaps of the envelopes and customised carrier bags adhere the side envelope flaps to the 3 1/4 strips.
