Gift Bag Tent

Several weeks ago, I was asked to make something "homemade" for a gift basket. After debating over several things, I decided on Fried Chicken Coating Mix. Of course, since I love papercrafts, I had to package it creatively! I designed this little "tent" to house the mix...

You can find the recipe (which you must try!) on my other blog, Capture the Little Things at Home.

If you're interested in making a gift bag tent, you will need...


1 piece of cardstock, cut 6-1/2 inches X 11 inches

2 pieces of patterned paper (PP)

*PP1: cut to 6-1/2" x 3-1/2"

*PP2: cut to 6-1/2" x 2"

Small wire clip


1. From one end cardstock piece, score & fold at 3-1/2", 5-1/2", 9".

2. Adhere PP1 to bottom 3-1/2" section of CS.

3. Adhere PP2 to top 2" section of CS.

If desired, adhere recipe & recipe name as shown below

4. Adhere gift item to inside of the tent.
(Mine was a powdered mix in a little ziploc baggie and I just taped it to the inside to keep it from falling out.

5. Clip tent shut using the little wire clip

There you have it! =)
