Here is a template and instructions for the Cinnamonbaby tote / gift bags posted recently.
Use card stock for the bag shape. Make a false front and embellish before affixing to the bag front (sides and back if you choose).
This template is on an 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. I am not including any measurements because you can create any size and shape you want.
1. Fold equal distances from the top and bottom (see dotted lines).
2. Fold equal distances from both sides (see dotted lines - be sure when sides are folded in they are wide enough to fill the gap).
3. From each of the number 2 (side) folds - CUT out a wedge (see solid lines). When you glue / tape the sides, angle the top in a little bit - this adds a lot to the shape of the bag.

I LOVE these! We have a Women's Ministry kick off in September, and we're going to make one for each of the ladies! They will LOVE these "purses" filled with goodies! Thank you so much for sharing the template! It's SO easy! I just made one with scratch paper, and it's awesome that we can make them ANY size! Thanks again!
