Fabricate Friday – A Starbucks replicated bag

Oh, coffee…it’s a wonderful thing.  I call it my attitude adjustment in the morning.  I would be a serious grouch without it.  So I often buy pouches of the instant Starbucks coffee for myself and the salon (don’t knock it till you try it…it’s really good) and that is where I got the inspiration for this little gift bag.  Check out the video and if you need any of the supplies I used in this video please just scroll down after the video to the visual product link below and it will whisk you away to my online store where you can shop 24/7.

Starbucks replicated bag

Card stock: 9 by 9 square

  • Score one side :  half score at 1/2, Full score at 1, 4 1/2, second half score at 4 3/4, full score at 4 3/4, 51/4 and 8 1/2
  • Score the other side at 1 and 7 inches.


  • I say a half score but I suggest scoring down to 6 inches or so.
  • That partial score is folded like an accordion.
  • Notch that accordion fold so you get a V shape when flat.

Watch the video for a tutorial. Enjoy the show.

      Lol. Well, I don’t usually make the same thing twice but perhaps I can do something with the yellow stripes in another project.

    Ooh, another lovely creation from you! I love little bags & boxes – you can never have too many, can you!?! I like this bag design (and in my favourite Park Lane DSP!) and your tutorial is wonderful as usual – thank you! x I always get confused, as to which is the front and back when it comes to cutting bits off or placing adhesive on closing flaps, and many a mistake has been made, so it makes me feel less dopey when others have similar moments. Oh, and thanks also for the ‘Bow Tying’ tips, I tried your previous one and it worked a treat, so I will have a go at today’s method and hope for good results. Have a good weekend and thanks for your inspiration. Karen x

      Hi Karen, thanks for your lovely comments. Always like to know that people like what I’m doing. You know, I get confused a lot so I just laugh at myself, it’s the only thing I can do. If there is something in particular you’d like to see please don’t hesitate to let me know. I’m going to have some crafting time Monday and Tuesday so ask away. Today is my mom’s birthday and I’m treating her to dinner. 🙂
