Day 9 of the #12daysofholidaygiftwrap…

Hi, hello, me again!!  Day 9 of this holiday-focused gift packaging series of posts!

Today, we bring you two paper bag envelope/gift bags (depends on the contents, I guess?) that might look a little feminine and other-occasion-specific, but the concepts and techniques still apply beautifully for a Christmas gift bag.

This first gift bag was run through a Big Shot machine with an embossing folder and then I layered up with the die-cut ephemera pieces to create a lovely and versatile gift package.  The top of the bag has been die-cut with an edge die that folds over at the top and layers with a piece of patterned paper, that coordinates with the rest of the embellishments.

The next example is a Birthday gift bag (or card envelope) that is trimmed with 3 different patterns of washi tape and then embellished with pretty ephemera die-cuts.

You can see how little it takes to dress up a plain paper bag, whether it is kraft or white or even patterned, and how quickly you can have a lovely packaged gift for a friend or loved one!

There’s still more!  Check back tomorrow for additional ideas for last minute wrapping!

Day 8 of the #12daysofholidaygiftwrap…

Gift wrapping days are slowing drawing to a close and soon it will be Christmas Eve or Christmas morning, whenever your family opens gifts.  But we still have some fun ideas left for your gift bag inspiration!

Today’s gift bag is the smaller flat bag again, and once more, I’ve run it through the Big Shot with a snowflake embossing folder.  A fun thing about putting a bag into an embossing folder, is that when you’re finished running it through, you have the same design DEbossed on the back of the bag!  Which looks pretty cool!

This bag came together pretty quickly, with a strip of washi tape all around the bottom of the bag, and then some layers of a label sticker, a white glitter paper snowflake, a silver, glitter paper holly leaf and a white shimmer leaf with a wood veneer word glued on the top.  Zip, zap, zoop, as they say!

You can see the supplies used pictured below.

Once again, check back tomorrow for day 9 of this gift bag-apalooza!
