Tis the season of gift giving! Part of gift giving is the gift packaging. While the packaging isn’t the main event, it is still a big part of it and why not make it fabulous??
I got these little bags from the dollar store with some hand sanitizers in them! I always like having some in my purse and they are cute little gifts that you can give for hostess gifts, secret santa, and so much more. Stay tuned to see those all decorated next week! 🙂 I thought I could decorate these little bags as gift card holders, money holders, or any other small gifts! Cute and simple!!
The bags are 4″ x 4″ so I took a piece of cardstock measuring 3-3/4″ x” 8″ and scored it at 4″. I folded it in half and slide it inside the bag. This will hide the gift in the packaging.
For the front, I took a piece of Designer Series Paper and adhered it on with Fast Fuse. That adhesive is super strong and will hold tight. The bags at the top use the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper and the ones just above use Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. I stamped the To/From from the Tin of Tags Stamp Set but those images are in many different sets so you can pick your favorite. I punched out the tag with the Decorative Label Punch and then punched a hole in the corner with the Handheld 1/8″ Punch! I attached the punch with some Metallic Thread to the handle. I used Silver Metallic Thread and Silver Glimmer Ribbon for the ones at the top. For the Gingerbread Houses, I used Candy Cane Lane Baker’s Twine and Red Metallic Thread.
This one uses the Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper with that Copper Foil in it. Love it. For the tag, I used Copper Metallic Thread and Rich Razzleberry Ribbon from the Ribbon Trio Pack.
Do you like decorating a lot with your gift packaging or go with something simple?? Let me know in the comments below! I sometimes like to go all out and other times I think how it will be ripped up and thrown out in no time so I don’t want to go all out.
