A fun and easy gift bag...

This is just a cute little gift bag I made for a card club I go to every other Tuesday.
The base of this bag is so easy to whip up. They are great to have on hand for an unexpected or almost forgotten occasion. It is also a perfect size to fit a set of 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 cards.

The end measurements are 6" wide x 4 1/2" high and 3" deep.
All you need is a 12 x 12 piece of card stock.
Score from one side at 3" and 9" (all the way across).
Turn paper and score from other side at 4 1/2 & 7 1/2 (all the way across).
Snip the scored lines in the middle on opposite sides and fold into itself.
Then just decorate...
Easy Peasy!!!

This little Apple Tree is a digi from Just Inklined. I love it because it is so versatile, you can really use it for any season. Just color it up a little differently.

Check out one of my old Sassy Sistahs, Jodi's blog for directions.
