  1. Cut the fabric into a 6x16" rectangle. Fold the fabric in half with right sides together. Stitch the sides. Fold the opening of the bag and stitch to create a hem. Turn the bag right side out.
  2. Mark the position of the eyelets about 2" from the top of the bag. Snip small holes for the eyelets with scissors. Add the eyelets to the bag, and string ribbon through the holes to create the closure.
  3. Cut patterned paper to fit inside a metal-rim tag. Enhance with glitter and a note as desired. Add an eyelet at the top of the tag, and string through the ribbon closure.

SOURCES Patterned paper: BasicGrey. Pen: Sakura. Glitter: Ranger Industries. Tag, eyelets: Making Memories. Ribbon: May Arts. Design: Erikia Ghumm.
