  1. Cut the fabric into a 6x16" rectangle. Fold the fabric in half with right sides facing in. 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 rickrack through the holes to create the closure.
  3. Add a small piece of cardboard inside the bag for a hard surface to stamp on. Stamp the ornaments and greeting with permanent ink.
  4. To color the images, use permanent re-inkers diluted with water. Go over the top with a paintbrush. When finished, heat-set the ink with an iron.
  5. Create a tag with cardstock and pens. Add it to the closure by pushing an eyelet through the top.
