Book-shaped Mini Gift Bag

Our bookworm niece has a birthday coming up and has entered the gift card years, but I just can’t bring myself to simply put a gift card into her birthday card! So when I saw the svg files for this little book bag, I made sure to get it!

She’s always been an animal lover, so I decided on this cute pets cardstock from Authentique for the body and coordinating solids for the details. The “kate” is glitter paper cute with my Sizzix Big Shot.

Then I pulled out my Martha Steward scoring board to add pages-texture to that side piece.

Other than the “kate,” the pieces were cut with my Cricut Explore with free files from Dreaming Tree (


Very sweet!

What a cute idea to give her a book too. :slight_smile:

how cute is this?!?

Aw thanks, y’all!

As a bookworm myself, I love this!

Thanks! I for sure can use these files again for TheMisterT who reads as much or more than he sleeps or for any future author event things he might have.

This is so clever! You nailed it.
