Decorated Paper Bag Tutorial

I created these cute little bags, they can be used for treats or a small gift. These are really easy to make and here are the list of supplies I used:
White Sacks - 3 1/2 x 6 3/4
Decorative cardstock
ribbon (enough to fit around the bag at desired length)
embellishments ( I used a flower, button and bow)
3/4 circle punch
tag punch
Cut decorative card stock at 3 3/8 x 6 1/2 and adhere centered on to the bag. At approximatelty 2 1/2 inches from the top of the bag make notches on each side of the bag using 1/2 of the circle punch. Tie the ribbon around the notch of each side of the bag as shown. Decorate with flowers or whatever you choose. I put a "for you" tag on the side of the flower. You could also punch a whole in the tag and hang it from the ribbon.
Here is my first tutorial (with a fair share of bloopers) Hope you try it!!
