Mini 3x3" Card Bag with retiring Scallop Envelope Die

I know this Scallop Envelope Die is (sadly) sold out but as I had already made this tutorial AGES ago and I thought I might as well share it with you now!! Just in case you own it already :-) I also used the (retired) Lace Border punch and just one A4 sheet of card to make this cute bag!
So here we go...
Take your A4 sheet of card and cut it into the card to make two 13cm x 11.5cm pieces (at the bottom) a 4.5cm x 19cm piece (in the centre for the base and sides) and (along the top) a 4cm x 30cm piece for the handle
 Die cut the two envelopes and stamp all over the fronts and the inside flap of one.
Then score the 4.5cm x 19cm piece at 5.5cm and 13.5cm
 then punch the long piece left over leaving the ends intact, trim the outer strip away and the ends in line with the punched strip. Glue the bag together (with either tombow or sticky strip to adhere it firmly) and add the handle to finish!
Here is a finished design. It fits 3"x3" mini cards in perfectly...
and empty you can see I left the flap up at the back for stability of the contents and I folded down and secured the front flap so you can see inside ;-)
 Button Buddies cards that we made at this earlier class
 and lastly this is one I made without the handle
Well, I hope that those of you who already have this fab die can get a bit more use from it in the future!
 And remember please do order your favourite from the retirement list before they sell out!!
