Repeat this step using a new sheet of cardstock and the welcome bag template back.

Laminate the sheets.

Cut the front and back sides of the bag out.

Score and fold the front and back pieces on the template lines.

Glue or tape the sides together.

Fold and close the bottom. Glue or tape it shut.

Insert the Poly Cord into the holes. Tie a knot on each end from the inside of the box.

It's ready to fill and go!

I used these at my Open House Pre-Enrollment as gifts for next year's students so I didn't add many embellishments for the three year olds but you can certainly dress these up for any special occasion.
