Anytime I give a gift, the one comment I always receive is, "it's so cute, if I open it I'll ruin it." Well I solved that problem (at least with this bag.) :) The top slides off to reveal the gift inside. No untieing... It uses two Stampin' Up!, fancy favor bags. One as the bag and the other as the cover. To create the cover, you put the bag together as normal except you cut off the four pieces that normally fold together to create the bottom of the bag. It should resemble a sleeve. For a little extra touch, make sure to slide it over the bottom bag upside down so you get the fancy little edging along the bottom.
