Today I learned from Live Love Scrap how to make a homemade gift bag. To view how to make it go to her youtube video here
After seeing that I had to go home and make one. I used the DCWV Butterflies and Blossoms paper. Too Cute! The tabs that help keep that area strong so it won't tear. It was made w/ the Cricut cartridge Fabulous Finds, #33 and cut at 2" in the blackout feature. Then I put larger pink brads in the holes to help hold the ribbon in place as well. You can dress it up more by adding embellishments to the front. That's probably what I'll do. For example, make a large butterfly or flower and attach it to the font of the bag then create a tag to attach to the ribbon so I can put to and from on it.
Sorry for the bad images, they were taken w/ my phone.
