Using your paper scraps decorate the bag with some strips of the paper. You can used dies or edge punches to decorate the paper if you want. I used a doily edge punch on the bottom strip of mine.

Add a sentiment if you wish. I had wrote one on my bag with a white pen. I also added some faux stitching on the papers.

Step 5

Fill your bag with some goodies for a loved one and fold the top of it down. Fold the doily over the top and use a mini peg or paper clip to hold it closed.
