Today's tutorial: Box in a Bag

This is such an easy project, and a great size for a small gift! I updated Diana's design with some cute die cut handles.

I scored my paper at 5" and 10" along the long side and folded both sides in. Choosing 2 circle dies for the handles, I centered the smaller one at the top of the folded piece and cut through both layers.

Next I lined up both circle dies together on 2 pieces of cardstock to cut 2 handles at once.

I lined the cut pieces up with my first cuts on the designer paper and glued them in place, then followed the rest of Diana's instructions to assemble the bag, lining up the fold lines in my paper with the corners of the box base.

Bonus tips:
-- I used small staples to hold my box corners together.
--Use the cut out from the handle to make a gift tag!
