I hope it's okay that I am posting this. I posted some tote bags in the gallery that I made using the template from the March issue of Paper Crafts. A couple of people were looking for the template. Here it is.
Thanks, everyone! I love this template and have really enjoyed making them. The best thing about it is that it fits 4.25 x 5.5 cards perfectly.
One thing I forgot to mention in this thread but it is in my gallery post is that I made my straps out of a second piece of paper - each strap is 1/2" x 11". The ends attach to the inside of the bag with brads. Then the two straps down each side of the bag are out of another 1/2" strip.

Thanks for sharing this! I have a couple of BD's coming up and this will be great.

Thanks so much for taking the time to give all the template. It is so awesome. I just used SU's double sided paper from the spring mini for my stepmom. I used the tag punch for a tag on the front. Thanks again

I LOVE this little tote bag!! I'm dying to make it. However, I couldn't open the link. Can someone email it to me at email@example.com. I've searched the internet and paper crafts site, but I couldn't find the template. =( Please help! Thank you!
Did you ladies who can't it try right clicking and then clicking on "Save Target As"? PDFs in Adobe seem to work this way. Wish I figured this out by myself, but I found the hint.....on you guessed SCS. Good luck.
Tanya - I have emailed it to you. Not sure if you tried it or not, but to open pdf attachments you have to save target as and save it on your computer first and then open it. It won't open if you just click on the link. Hope this helps, Jen
Julie - the template isn't actual size because I had to make it slightly smaller to make it fit an 8.5" x 11" page with margins for the pdf. Just follow the dimensions on the template. It's really easy when you do it - just a couple of score lines, a couple of cuts and it's ready to assemble. Hope this helps, Jen

Thank you for posting these instructions! I have been trying to figure out how to make one of these ever since I saw yours in the gallery.
THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!
This is why I love SCS you find so many awesome ideas and great people who are willing to share their projects!
Thank you so much for posting the instructions for making these totes. I made some tonight and they came out soooo cute! Inside each tote is a coordinating set of notecards and a beaded pen. I made these as thank you gifts for people that helped me with a church project.
Thank you for posting! I thought...oh darn I should have bought that issue. Used your template this weekend for a card order...turned out great! Then was cleaning up and I HAD bought that issue!! Would have never known it! Thanks again for posting. Your purses turned out sooooo cute!!
