Gift Bag Tutorial using 12x12 Paper

Welcome to this months Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop we our a 
group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world
sharing card making and papercraft ideas and inspiration using 
Stampin' Up! Products.

This months blog theme is Christmas now I'm all 
done with making my christmas cards as I'm sure most of you are??

this close to Christmas and I thought gift Packaging so I've revisited

gift bags with 2 sheets of 12x12 DSP we all need 
cute gift packaging ideas right now!
