This plain white paper bag is easily transformed into a fab card and gift wrapping all in one. So get your supplies ready and get creative along with me! First of all you need to take your paper bag (my bag measures about  8 3/4 x 4 3/4) and fold to leave about 1.5″ from the top.

Next step is to cut your patterned paper and ink the edges if you wish.

Put a strip of strong tape on the inside of the flap to create a large pocket, and fold.

I used the ever-so-adorable Sweet Deer digi stamp as the main focal point of the bag. Adhere the image on top of the the doily using foam tape and then adhere the doily using even more foam tape.

Then all that is left is to decorate the bag however you please. I used a 3×4 card as the “card” portion of the bag and then I can fill the larger pocket with goodies or a small present.
