Designer Paper Product Spotlight

My Product Spotlight for this week on my FB page, Jeanne Nielsen The Card Lady is designer paper.  I know that I love the paper in the Occasions catalog, and I also love the paper in the Annual Catalog.  Neither of them will carry over next year I'm pretty sure. (The wood paper has been the only paper that I believe has ever carried over.)

I saw a YouTube video by Lyssa Zwolanek that used a full sheet of designer paper to make a cute bag, all with no waste.  I figured that it's possible that I could make these bags in other sizes.  I made her bag to display on my video (the large bag in the back corner), but made other bag sizes as well.  


So, here are the designer paper sizes and the score lines, then follow the video to put them together.  

To make the large Calypso Coral bag in the back using the Happiness Blooms DSP, follow these steps.

12" x 12" Designer Paper:
  • Cut off (2) 1" strips from 1 end.  Score these strips in half lengthwise to make your handles.
  • Score in half, at 6" on the 12" side of the remaining large piece of DSP, then score either side at 5" and 7".
  • Cut in 3" on the 5" and 7" score line and adhere inwards to form your reinforced bottom.
To make the small bag in front using the Tropical Escape DSP from the Annual Catalog, follow these steps.

6" x 6" Designer Paper:
  • Cut off (2) 1" strips from 1 end.  Score these strips in half lengthwise to make your handles.
  • Score in half, at 3" on the 6" side of the remaining large piece of DSP, then score either side at 3 1/2" and 4 1/2"
  • Cut in 3" on the 3 1/2" and 4 1/2" score line and adhere inwards to form your reinforced bottom.
  • With tear 'n tape, adhere each side to form your bag.
Finally, to make the floral bag in back left that uses the Painted Seasons DSP from Sale-a-bration (that ends on March 31st, by the way!), follow these steps.  *This was the bag I made in my video.

9" x 9" Designer Paper:
  • Cut off (2) 1" strips from 1 end.  Score these strips in half lengthwise to make your handles.
  • Score in half, at 4 1/2" on the 9" side of the remaining large piece of DSP, then score either side at 3 1/2" and 5 1/2"
  • Cut in 3" on the 3 1/2" and 5 1/2" score line and adhere inwards to form your reinforced bottom.
  • With tear 'n tape, adhere each side to form your bag.
Unfortunately I am having trouble uploading the video right now, but I will save it to YouTube tomorrow and try again!!  I'm sorry!
