KKS Krafty Skrappy Challenge: Anything but a card

I'd like to share with you my creation for the "Krafty Scrappy Challenge: Anything but a card" over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps...

Here's my gift bag:

I started by stamping the image/sentiment on Xpress-it paper with Memento Ink and colored it with Copic Markers.  I matted the colored image on a background I created with Tim Holtz Oxide Inks on watercolor paper.  And then attached it to a gift bag I made using two 12x12 sheets of red card stock.

Here are the instructions on how to make the gift bag:
On both sheets, put the following score lines:
2 inches from the top
3 inches from each side
3 inches from the bottom
On the first sheet, make a cut on the score line 3 inches from the edge of each side to the side score lines. On the second sheet, cut the small 3x3 squares created by the score lines on the side and bottom of the page and remove them.

Here is a sketch to help:

Now to assemble:  fold the top score lines back so that there will be a flap on the outside of the bag, fold all other score lines towards what will be the inside of the bag.  Overlap the bottom and side flaps and adhere with a heavy duty tape/glue.  Last step is to hole punch two holes on each side of the bag and then cut two strips of ribbon.  Insert each end of the first ribbon in the holes on one side and tie a knot in them to make sure they will not come back through the hole.  Repeat for the other side.  Your gift bag is complete :)

Here is the stamp set I used:
