Hostess Monday with Denise and Christmas Treat Bag Tutorial

Hello!  I am Denise Cayce and I am having so much fun using Wendy's images on my weekly projects! 
I have  been making cards, scrapbooking and making paper projects for many years!  It is such a joy to see the appreciation in my family and friends for the personal items that I have made!
For this week's hostess Monday, I am doing a tutorial on a Christmas Treat Bag!  I hope you like it!
Supplies Needed:
8 1/2" x 11" Sheet Colored Cardstock
Cardstock scraps for front of box
Edge Punch
Roll of Sticky Strip Adhesive
Joyful Jamie (colored)
Magical winter sentiments

Step-by-Step Directions:
Step 1
Position cardstock lengthwise. Using scoring bone folder, score cardstock at 2", 5", 7", and 10".

Step 2
Turn cardstock, and score at 2" and 7".

 Step 3
Hold cardstock horizontally with the 2" section at the top.
Use scissors to cut off all but one 2" tall section from the top of the cardstock as shown. This will be the flap closure for the box. Make vertical cuts at the bottom to create 1 1/2" tall flaps, and cut off the narrow piece. This will be the bottom of the box. 
Step 4
Cut the narrow piece at an angle to create tab for adhesive. Apply adhesive strips
Fold scored lines with a bone folder.  Remove top layer of adhesive.
Construct box.  (Add adhesive to all edges of box to adhere flaps
Step 5
Punch edge of front flap.
Pinch top sides of boxes and bend only top of box to form top of box.
Step 6
Punch two holes in flap with cropadile through all box layers (or any hole punch)
(I punched a little off even with premarking where to put my holes, but it still looks great when it is all done)

Step 7
Thread ribbon through holes on box. Center ribbon. Tie in a knot

Step 8
Decorate front of box with scrap cardstocks and or image of your choice (I used Digital Delights Joyful Jamie for the front  of my  treatbox along with the Magical Christmas Sentiments.  She was colored and shaded with my copics!  I just love coloring her and have used her many times so far for my projects!)
I also used the corner rounder for my corners of my box
Enjoy filling and giving!

Haven´t you forgot some steps in between here several timea? Or is it just to trick the enemies, that there´s soo many numbers missing here?
But the endresult looks pretty awesome, I agree to that.

Steps corrected Maryann:) I am sure it was just a small error. This was Denises first tutorial and think she did a magnificent job!
