I marked about 2 to 3 inches down on each corner and cut a slit to that mark.
I folded down each side about half way.
Then I folded down again.
Then I trimmed the edge of each fold down with a decorative scissors.
You could also use pinking shears too or leave plain.
I punched a hole on the two short sides to make a handle.
I threaded each end of a pipe cleaner through the holes and
curled the tips to keep them in place.
Then we glued our flowers to the bags, and added the girls
names with glitter glue.
Now all we had to do was add the gifts and some tissue.
We didn't spend much on the gifts either.
Just a little candy, one thing each from the dollar section,
a bracelet that my daughter made,
and a spool doll I made.
( I will show the spool dolls in an upcoming blog.)
I hope you liked this tutorial, we sure had fun making them!

Please stop buy to see it on display, Mimi is so excited!
