Bag-A-Lope Duo

Leave a comment

If you’re a follower of my blog you know that I’m absolutely LOVING my new Simply Scored tool. At a recent workshop, I showed the guests how easy it is to make cute favours using that and just plain envelopes (also called a bagalope).


All you do is the following:


  • Seal your envelope.
  • Score in 1″ on both short sides and one long side.
  • Cut the end of the envelope off on the side you did not score.
  • Fold back and forth a few times and then make into a bag shape.
  • Decorate as you please.


I made the above Halloween treat bag with a fun velcro closure (the strip of Rich Razzleberry folds all the way around and there is a velcro closure behind the circle. I decided to also make a fun fall themed one:


For this one I used the Gently Falling stamp set and the top closure is a folded over scallop circle from the Pennant Die which was punched through twice with the Crop-A-Dile and tied with some Spice Cake Designer Fabric.


For an even extra little punch, I took a square of Soft Suede cardstock, scored it around the bottom of the box and made it into a little resting box for the gift bag.


There are so many quick and easy projects you can make with your Simply Scored – just get out and try it!
