Here's how I put mine together.
Cut and scored all of the shapes as necessary.
Embossed all of the orange cardstock with the "bubbles" Cuttlebug embossing folder
Prefolded all of the score lines
On the long center strip that becomes the center and side walls of the bag there are additional score lines which will become a gusset. You don't have to fold them but if you do, this is how it will look:
On either side of the base/side wall strips are tabs that need to be folded in see picture above). Adhered the tabs to the face and back wall of the bag. You can stand the walls straight up and down or at a slight angle. In the picture below you can see I adhered mine at a slight angle.
Fold up all of the walls on the decorative outter base piece. To adhere, I put glue in the bottom and set the bag inside. The one-by-one I glued each of the walls to the bag.
Glue the patches in place.
Feed the straps through buckles. You can use metal buckles or do like I did and use my buckles file to cut silver buckles. Adhere the buckles and straps to the patches.
Attach the tag around one of the straps.
Voila! High fashion made from paper!!
I hope this will help answer any questions on how the bags are put together. Enjoy!
