Gift bag with cards

Here is a super cute, and surprisingly easy gift bag with cards to make. I made 4 cards with envelopes to go in mine but it will hold a LOT more. Here's the whole set together. I kept my cards really simple, just used our circle punches and rub ons to finish.

Here's the bag, so cute! To make it you'll need 3 pieces of cardstock. 2 cut at 4 3/4 and 6 (this is your front and back) and 1 cut 4 3/4 x4 (this is the bottom). On the 4 inch side score at 1/2 at each end. Glue the front and back sides onto the 1/2 inch tabs on the bottom. For the sides. You'll need 2 pieces of DSP 6x5. On the 5 inch sides, score every 1/2 inch across the entire paper. Fold up accordion style. Glue the front and the back pieces of cardstock the the DSP. So easy. I used brads to attach ribbon for a handle and you're done.

Don't you just love that accordion style side!

Plenty of room for more cards!
