Hexagon Gift Bag

Hi Everyone,

Today I am bringing you a cute hexagon shaped gift box/bag using my favourite designer series paper (gingham, I just love it).  It will hold a few sweets, chocolates or small treats.  I made lots of these last Christmas for my craft fairs too.

There is a video tutorial over on my YouTube channel at 

pop over there and have a look.


1 piece of card stock 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (I've used call me clover and mint macaron)
2 pieces of dsp 3 3/8" x 1 7/8" (I've used the designer series paper stack)
Scraps of whisper white for the butterflies and the sentiment
Small piece of ribbon for the tie (optional), if using this you will need a 1/8" hole punch
Library clip to close (optional)
Butterfly Gala stamp set
Delightful Day stamp set
Ink to match
Butterfly Duet Punch
Story Label Punch
Clear block
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side score the card stock at 2", 4", 6", 8" and then turn on to the short side and score at 2", fold and burnish all the straight lines.

Put the card stock flat on the table and with a ruler score diagonal lines across the 2nd and 4th large rectangles at the top section of the card stock in both directions to form a cross. Then score a line from the centre of the cross to the top of the card stock (these are all fold lines).

Remove the bottom skinny rectangle and wedge the upper skinny rectangle - this will form the tab to close the box.

Cut up the other score lines to the middle on the lower section of the card stock, these will form the bottom flaps of the box.

At this point add the dsp to the upper rectangles that have not been scored.

Fold in the two side flaps and the back one too and then adhere the front flap closed to seal the base of the box.

Push in on the two sides of the box at the top and it should fold together so that the side sections pop out into the hexagon shape (see the main picture).

If you are closing the bag with ribbon, punch out in the centre at the top with the 1/8" hole punch and thread the ribbon through and tie in a bow.  If not, secure with a library clip.

Stamp the sentiment and a set of butterflies on the scrap whisper white in the ink of your choice and punch out with the punches.  Bend up the wings on the butterfly and adhere the small one to the sentiment label and the large on to the bag.  Add dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and adhere to the bottom of the front of the bag.

There you go, a quick and simple gift bag, hope you will give it a try.

Happy crafting,

Karen XX
