The supplies you will need: A paper bag, stamp sets – Mountain View and Antique Map, and our Perfectly Pierced Classic Window die. This is a generic paper bag that measures 4 1/2 x 7 3/4 inches. Trim the little flap at the top so that it is even across the top as shown. Score at 3 inches from the seam at the bottom of the bag and fold in half. Stamp your Antique Map image onto the bag with it folded using Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad. Now, unfold the flap and add adhesive to the two 3 inches edges and adhere to the bag. Die cut your Perfectly Pierced Classic Window shape into the desired colored cardstock. Here I am using our Color Made Easy True Blue collection. I used a circle punch and cut a half circle shape into the first layer only of the bag front. This will show the little tab I added to my cardbase. This is optional step if you choose. Now decorate as you wish. I stamped Mountain View onto Classic White card stock using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Colored with our Copic Collections Evergreen Cool Neutrals, Flesh Tones 1 and 2. Die cut the into a circle shape and layered onto some Color Made Easy Rich Browns card stock and adhered to the front of the bag onto my Perfectly Pierced Classic Window shape. You can see where I added the gift card into the pocket we created. Added my sentiment and a wooden button to the front. For the card insert where I will write my message, I simple took some Classic White card stock and cut a piece 4×4. The elk image is stamped-off onto scrap paper then stamped onto the card stock for a softer image on the insert. Then it is layered onto more Color Made Easy Rich Brown and True Blue cardstock. Voila!

Girl, only you could make a paper bag so beautiful! MAN beautiful! What a great idea. Your coloring is fab, as usual, and that wooden button, genius!
