Gift Bag and More

Well it's time for another Challenge at Hobbycutz and this week we want to see anything but a card . You can make a home decoration, scrapbook page, gift item, so that certainly opens it up for many things.
Today I decided to feature a gift bag that you can make using 2 pieces of double sided paper.  I started with matching 12 X 12 sheets.  I used a paper that would coordinate with my fun Snowman image.

I used 4 Hobbycutz pieces to make a frame for the image.  I chose another paper to make a border for the top of the bag using a Martha Stewart punch.  I added the paper bow, and it's ready for a gift.

Here are the instructions for each piece of paper

(if anyone wants these instructions please email me and I will send you the file.  It keeps turning tot a black square!?!?)

Score each sheet as shown on diagram and make the cuts per instructions.  
Fold along all scored lines.  
Fold 2” flap along top in opposite direction.     
Assemble bag by interlocking scored lines along sides and bottom.  
Adhere side flaps and bottom flaps.  
Punch holes on the side to add a ribbon handle, you can also use a paper handle or no handle at all.  
Embellish and finish as desired.

This is my first post today, so be sure to check back a little later for round two!
