Mini Bag-in-a-Box

This is the last of my October workshop projects. I know it's been done a million times, but I love this bag-in-a-box project because it's simple to make, looks adorable and is very useful! One of my groups made this cute little Mr. Twigster Mini Bag-in-a-Box (finished size 1 ½” square base, 4” tall ) using the Frosty Days Designer Paper. The other group made this medium sized Ski Slopes Medium Bag-in-a-Box (2” square at the base, 5" tall) ...just the right size for a gift card)! You can find a great tutorial HERE on my friend Cami's blog (thanks Cami, AWESOME tutorial!) and here are my dimensions for making the mini & medium versions:

Mini Size:
Cut cardstock for base box 3 ½” square, score each side at 1”
Cut Scallop strip ¾” x 6 ½” (before punching the scallop edge)
Cut Designer Paper 3 ½” x 6 ½”
Medium Size:
Cut cardstock for base box 4” square, score each side at 1”
Cut Scallop strip ¾” x 8 1/2" (before punching the scallop edge)
Cut Designer Paper 4 ½ x 8 ½”

I'm doing final preparations for my daughter's baby shower this weekend :) ! We're playing baby bunko and I used this bag-in-a-box idea to create several of the prizes...with Chocolate Chip & Pink Pirouette cardstock and a vareity of the Pink Pirouette Designer Papers...gorgeous combo, especially for a baby girl!!!
