Here's what you do:

Fold the bottom of the brown lunch bag up on the crease line and trim off the open side so that it measures 5.25”. Use Permanent GlueTape to adhere the side gusset closed on both sides. 


Choose your paper styles and cut them to size on a paper trimmer.  The inner panel should measure 4 7/8" x 4 7/8".   Unfold the front pocket and tape the inner panel down to the inside pocket area.  Use Permanent GlueTape to seal the front pocket. Tip: Carefully run Permanent GlueTape down the left and right side, close to the edge, when you apply the adhesive.


Decorate the front pocket with a piece of decorative paper that measures 4.75" x 2.75" The white mat measures 4 7/8" x 2 7/8".

Use a Spellbinders Circle die, or other circle punch, to cut out a partial circle on the open edge of the bag.

To create a note card insert, cut a piece of colored card stock to 4.75" x 4.75".   Cut a piece of white card stock to 4.5" x 4.5".  Cut a decorative accent paper to 1" x 4.75". Adhere these papers together by using Permanent GlueTape.
