I decided that I didn't really like the original layout of my accordian book gift bags. So I changed them a little bit and I really like the end result.
I still made them with wrapping paper but I changed the layout. Navy ribbon circles the bag. It is loose in the front so the card can slip under it. I added a snowflake for decoration to both the ribbon and the card.
On the opening side, I made it in envelope style. The flap fits under the card and the card is glued half way. The ribbon is glued to either side of this side and tie up in front of the flap to hold it closed.
When you open it the accordian book slides right out. I was really happy with this end result.
