Gift bag

This gift bag was made from two 12 x 12 heavy cardstock. I got the idea from Joy's life video blog. You start off with 2 12 x 12 paper. Then score at 2.5 on 3 sides. Cut the end pieces where the score lines intersect. Do this again on the other piece. Fold up the scored lines and use the bone folder to crease. Glue the 2 small bottom pieces and fold in to glue together.  Do this on the other sheet so both pieces look the same. Put glue on bottom and sides and put it inside the other one and press down for the glue to hold. Then take a hole punch and punch two holes on each side in about the same place. Thread the ribbon in on both holes and tie knots. Do the same on the other side. If making a smaller bag, score at 1 inch.
2 12 x 12 pieces of cardstock (or if making a small bag 2 8 x 8 pieces)
Quick dry glue
Hole punch
