As shown in FIG. 5, at least an edge portion of the bag cover 20 is pivotally connected to the rear wall 14 of the bag body 10 by means of a hinge in such a manner that the bag cover 20 is adapted for pivotally folding up in order to open the bag body 10.

[0027] The bag cover 20 further comprises a display window 21 provided on a top surface 201 of the bag cover 20 in such a manner that the ornament 2 received in the storage compartment 15 is adapted for being seen from outside through the display window 20. The display window 21 is preferably made of transparent material such as plastic such that a user is able to see through the interior of the bag body 10, which is the storage compartment 15, from the display window 21. Since the material of the display window 21 may not be the same material of the bag cover 20, the display window 21 is preferably stitched on the bag cover 20 or pressed on the bag cover 20 by means of heat treatment such that the display window 21 is securely affixed on the bag cover 20 in position.

[0028] The supporting frame 30 is adapted for rigidly supporting the bag body 10 wherein the supporting frame 30 having four rigid members made of wood, plastic, or metal is formed in rectangular shape.
