Nestabilities Bag Tutorial

Start by getting a sturdy piece of card stock, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, cut out 2 die cuts with your Nestablities. (pretty much any shape will work)

Score your piece at 3 1/4, 4 1/4, and 5 1/4 and then cut the inner scores like shown in the picture above.

Then cut off those flaps.

Apply some double sided sticky tape to one side.

Pinch the center score inside the bag and fold the the bag together.

Here's the inside.

Attach your Nestabilities evenly to each side, and Decorate. Be sure to stop by Monday to see mine fully decorated!
