Gift Bag Card

Welcome back to the work week! I had a great Thanksgiving, but I'm glad to back in the "routine" because too many late nights haven't done good things for my boys' attitudes. I've been gone most of the weekend, so I haven't got a chance to stamp until late last night. While I was checking out some of the blogs I regularly visit, I came across an adorable card with a bag on the front of it! I had to stop right there and give it a try. How cute is this? It would be darling with a gift card in it or another small gift. It's kind of hard to explain how to make this bag, but I'll give it a shot.

You start with a 6x6 sheet of cardstock or d.p. You score at 1/2, 1, 1 1/2, 4, 4 1/2, & 5. Turn it the opposite direction and score at 1/2 & 1 1/2. This will be the bottom. You will not have a back to your bag. You adhere on the 1/2" section to your card front. As you fold on the score lines you will see how it is supposed to go together (I hope). I had a little trouble figuring out the bottom, so I cut a chunk out of the bottom corners and it folded easier for me. I'd love to see what you come up with.
