Assemble the Gift Bag:

1. Choose which gift bag to make. These instructions are for the reindeer bag. Modify the following instructions using the printable pattern of your choice.

2. Cut out the printable reindeer antler patterns. Trace the antler shapes onto brown cardstock; cut out.

3. Punch four 1-1/2″circles from red cardstock.

4. Fold each circle in half, using a bone folder to crease.
