Basic Grey Box in a Bag

Here is another Box in a Bag, but a different size. My friend Michelle and I swapped one with each other and wanted to fill them with just little goodies. This is the one I made for her. I used Basic Grey's Blush, Prima Flowers and pink brads are unknown. I also used SU!'s Round Tab Punch. I love their punches!!
The original size and pattern can be found here. A mini size and pattern can be found here. BUT we needed an in between size so I came up with these dimensions. I used the same technique as the other gals, so check out their blog for the directions:
box: 3.5" x 3.5" (score at 3/4" on each side
bag piece: 4.25 x 11"
very important tip: use tacky tape on all of the steps that you have to tape together. I didn't on the tabs and they kept popping off, so had to add the tacky tape.
If you make one of these I would love to see it. These are so fun to do and I will be making lots more of them.


  1. oooh, this is CUTE paper! Great job on the bag! I'll bet it would fit a 1/2 dozen snickerdoodles nicely! ;) Jeepers, I start thinking of cookies so early in the day! LOL! No wonder why I need to drop 100lbs!

  2. this is the awesomest....and I would know! hee hee!! ;)
    As for the snickerdoodles.....make me the BIG bag when you do that....this one isn't near big enough for that! LOL!

  3. Great job. Love the way you did the top.
