Paper Bag Cards Galore!

I am so excited about this new way I've created to make a card out of a paper bag! Don't you just love all things made out of paper bags?!  I made a Birthday Paper Bag Card like this a few days back. Click HERE to see it.

Here's the outside:
 Inside Flap (which is the bottom part of the paper bag): 

Inside Left: 

And inside right with bag opening: 

Pull out tag from inside bag:

And here are all 4 of my fun Paper Bag Cards I made showing different folds:

Measures: 4 5/8" x 2 7/8" x 8 5/8".
Buttons from "Bag of Buttons" from Hobby Lobby.
Pattern papers all from "Fairytale Princess" Glitter stack from Hobby Lobby.
*Ribbon on tags from stash.
