I'm going to show you next a really cute thing. It's an Easter goody bag. You can use this for any holiday but it's a cute way to turn any kind of white paper bag, lunch sack, you could use a colored one, into a nice gift bag. First thing we're going to do is take your gift bag and go ahead and cut it down to any size that you want. I'm going to be using 5 inches. So I'm just going to line it up and my cutter will cut through all of this. So I'm going to go ahead and cut it 5 inches. The top part you can just toss. We're not going to use it. And you can just set the bottom side aside. Alright now to cut the rest of the paper I've measured the bottom of my bag going across and it's 5 1/4 inches. So I need my length of my paper, and I'm going to use some of this pretty designer series paper, 5 1/4 for the length of it. And I want it to be 3 1/4 inches tall. So 5 1/4 by 3 1/4. These dimensions are all variable to your bag. You choose which size you want on these. So let's just see what we've got. A little sneak peek. We've got 5 1/4. It's a good thing you check. 5 1/4 by 3 1/4. And that's the first layer of your card stock that you're going to use with these really cute goody bags.
