Handmade Gift Bag from 12x12 DSP

This is going to be a very quick post, because it's late and because I finally found this photo and I can't remember the name of the DSP I used. I know it's retired, but it's a blur.lol I started with two pieces of 12x12 matching DSP and scored at 3" on 3 of the sides and 1" on the 4th side, folded and taped it up. Yep, pretty much that easy, except for two cuts I made and I don't have a diagram to show you, but once you score, you'll see where it needs to be cut in to.  (The top of the bag is the 1" score).  I punched two holes on each side of the bag for running the Certainly Celery Satin ribbon (also retired) through for handles.  For the tag, I stamped the Wrapped Occasions stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink onto Whisper White and cut it out, and mounted it onto Certainly Celery cardstock and rounded two corners. I then stamped the cake alone, in Certainly Celery onto Whisper White and cut it out and popped it up over the first one and added a Calypso Coral heart from the Owl Punch and one Basic Rhinestone and hung it from the bag using some White Baker's Twine.  This is a GREAT way to use up retired DSP!
