Paper Bag

This is a super simple way to make your own paper bag from designer paper to hold gift cards or treats. I cut a sheet of retired Stampin' Up! Christmas paper 12" x 5" and scored edges at 1/4" on both long sides and folded it in half at the 6" mark, adhering both sides. Used pinking shears for top edge. Tag uses Holiday Sampler for sentiments and Jolliest of Holidays for Santa. Martha Stewart snowflakes punched from silver Glimmer Paper with half pearls added.
This is for the Just Add Ink # 178 challenge for this week of snowflakes.
