Embellished Gift Bags

I just love buying plain white gift bags at Michael's, Hobby Lobby or Joann's and fixing them up a bit.  It often doesn't take much....some pretty paper, a little cut out design, a title...there are just so many things you can do with a plain white gift bag!
I got together with 2 friends today for our little annual get together and lunch...we always exchange little gifties...they give me fabulous things and I always think my bags are better than what's in them! HA!  Some people are great gift givers and me...just don't always get it quite right!  But I am all about presentation and packaging and I thought my decorated gift bags looked really cute.
I found these designs in the Silhouette Store and simply cut them out with just a little adjusting with some Recollections Kraft Christmas paper I had picked up at Michael's last year. 

I added a few punched snow flakes and some bling and a couple of tags and there you have it! Cute!

Happy Crafting!


  1. Prettier than store bought gift bags for sure. Sad though because I see the tree skirt that your mother made and I cannot find the one she made for me and the one I'm crocheting is taking forever so in the meantime I'm using Cardinal/Poinsettia placemats arranged on the tree platform as our tree skirt. Used the stamp set you sent me with Christmas card and you can see my creation tomorrow morn on my blog.

  2. Very fun....makes the giftie more fun too.!
