Happy Birthday gift bag and card set.

I really like to see a matching gift bag and card and I particularly love this project because I have been working with the beautiful Daisy Delight Designer Series Paper, there are some gorgeous designs in this pack and they make the simplest of projects extra special.
The 3 x 3" card is so easy to make and the design of the card is based on the patterned

6 x 6" card stock scored at 3"
DSP 27/8 x 27/8"

I cut out  the DSP so that the focal point of the card is the large daisy. the sentiment is from Best Birds Photopolymer stamp set and stamped in Calypso Coral and the label has been cut out using the pretty label punch and embellished with gold faceted gems.
A quick and easy card to make but very effective.

Measurements for the Gift Bag

Card stock 103/4 x 51/4"
Scored on long side 4, 51/4, 91/4, 101/2"
Scored on short side 11/4"

DSP 33/4 x 33/4"  two of these
DSP 11/8 x 37/8"  two of these

Final measurements of bag 4 x 4 x 11/4"

Once the card stock has been scored you will see two 4 x 4" squares, find the half way point at 2" along the top edge of each square and score two lines from this point to each corner as shown above, forming a triangle.  Do this on both of the 4 x 4" panels. 

The two pieces of DSP are scored in the same way and cut as shown above into three pieces.

This is how it will look once the DSP has been glued to the card.

This is the completed gift bag, an example of one of the other designer papers in the Delightful Daisy Pack. The handle is made from Burlap Ribbon embellished with linen thread bows, the paper bow has been made using the bow builder punch and attached to the bag with Dimensionals.  The label is cut out using the Pretty Label Punch and the sentiment from the Best Birds photopolymer stamp set.  Embellished with gold faceted gems.
