DSP (or catty pages) bags -

So recently I saw an great video by Ronda Wade showing gift bags made out of two sheets of DSP.  I wanted to link it here - but I cannot find it now :(  But I remembered making them from years and years ago - I'm pretty sure I first saw the idea at a Stampin' Up! convention presentation.  I have so many old catalogs that I just hate to throw away, so I thought I'd adapt the pattern to make some cute little gift bags for my doorprizes at events.  Here are a couple I came up with -
They were so easy to make - that I decided to feature a larger DSP bag at my clubs this month for one of our projects.  Here was my sample -
This is retired DSP  and I used the leftovers from the bag for decorating a matching 3x3 card.  
Here it is from the top.  The ribbon handles are just fed through and tied in a knot.  So - I'm going to try and come up with some simple instructions and post them here soon - with a few more samples I made.  In the meantime - hope you are inspired to do something creative today!  ~Maureen

I was just last week trying to make a bag like. I didn't get it done. I went to Pinterest, but couldn't find what I was looking for. I'm still looking, so if you find it again, would you please pass it on? Thank you!

Omg! So love this idea. If you find the link or can post a tutorial it would be great.
