Brick Bag with Tag

Howdy Crafters - I created another rectangle bag - this one is 9 inches tall - and a bit wider than my 6 inch bag - thanks for stopping by and be blessed~Gail~
 A quart jar of popcorn will fit inside this bag
Click HERE to see photos of how to assemble a gift bag. 

*2 Pieces of 12 x12 Designer Paper [I used 2 pieces of the same cardstock 12 x12 inches square and cut off 2 1/2 inch strip to glue to one piece of the 12x12 inch square paper to get a 12 x 14 piece of decorative paper to create the bag]
*Jute or Ribbon for handle
*2 pieces of Recycled Cardboard for bottom of bag 3 x 3/4 inches - may have to trim some off to fit snug inside the bag - I glue them together - then glue one side and add to the bottom of the inside of the bag
*Glue or glue gun -[glue will hold better]
