Paper Bag Cards

2 Pockets in front and top
Held closed with ribbon
Here are a couple of different types of paper bag cards.  I was on pinterest and saw these cards! You buy the paper bags at your local craft store or just use the ones at your local supermarket.  I tried both and I liked the ones at the craft store better because they were more crisp and I think a little stronger but both worked!!  Check out this tutorial from Kara. She does a great job  explaining how to do it. The first paper bag has 2 pockets, one in the front and the other at the top.  The second type of the paper bag opens up and also has 2 pockets, one is smaller than the other but so cute!  Both of these types of cards can be used for gift cards and even "cold hard cash"  I really enjoyed making them and they made up quick!  The best thing about them was that you could use your scraps of paper from other projects that you have made!!!  I have a lot of scraps that I have been dying to use them on  something and I found the perfect project  right here!!   The photo below is a picture of the the 2nd type of paper bag card opened up.  Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

2 pockets for tags
