Use a decorative frame die to cut the pieces to create a bag. I used a set of Spellbinder frame dies and based the size of the bag from the largest die.

For the bag, cut a piece of cardstock with this dimension: 8 1/8 in x 8 in. On the longest side, fold at 2 1/4 and 6 inches. On the shortest side, fold at 2 3/8 in and 5 3/8 in.

Cut at an angle as seen in the image. This is optional, you can still go through adhering the sides overlapping each other. I just prefer minimal layers.
