Spring Bakery Bag

Spring Bakery Bag

I designed this Bakery Bag five years ago and still the measurements for it are stuck in my head. I debuted this fun little gifty bag on my 1st blog when literally no one but me read my blog and I had no idea I could make crafting my job! I still love it and all it’s potential for the things it can hold as well as the endless paper and embellishments I can make it from.

I hope you enjoy my Springy version.

Spring Bakery Bag 


  • Cut any 2 sided Designer paper: 10″x12″
  • Score Designer Series paper vertically at 1-1/2″, 2-1/2″, 3-1/2″, 7″, 8″ and 9″
  • Remove excess paper from bottom according to pattern (I will email you one just message me). This will reduce bulk when you make the final fold in your bag.
  • Crease score lines using bone folder. Fold score lines at 2-1/2″ and 8″ inward and all other score lines outward creating an accordion fold.
  •  Adhere window sheet to opening between right and left accordion folds.
  • Crease bottom score line using bone folder, and adhere using Sticky Strip.
  • Decorate bag as desired.
