Sussed

I sussed the bag thing!!

I dismantled the LA bag - highlighted the folds with a felt tip pen...and totally confused myself, so...remembered a bit of the google tutorial I found which used boxes as a template.

So this....

became this.....
I then did another with sharper folds(used a bone folder) and extra folds on the side panels so it sits better. Like this...
If anyone wants a tutorial let me know but its so easy even I can do it :)
I plan to do all my christmas gift bags - brown paper I thought.....

They look brilliant. Did you use wallpaper? Would like a tut if it's not too much trouble. Brown paper with Christmassy ribbons etc would be fab I think.
