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.

Day 6 of the #12daysofholidaygiftwrap…

Hello friends!

We’re back today with yet another gift bag for your holiday gift wrap inspiration!

This bag is a full lunch bag size and it was created after I made my own snowflake stencil.  There are several snowflake stencils available (two different ones in the Love is in the Details store) but I didn’t have them on hand so I plugged in my Silhouette electronic cutter and made my own.

I purchased one cut file (for .99 cents) with 6 different snowflake cut files included and then I was able to manipulate them by sizes and angles and to arrange them on a full 12″ sheet of paper for cutting.

Then I daubed Versamark Ink through all the snowflake holes and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.

I used another EK Success edge punch to create the scalloped top on the bag, folded it over and closed it up with some matching washi tape.  I wrapped white ribbon around the whole bag and tied that up with a blue tag adorned with some random bits that were laying on my table, including a glitter paper snowflake, a chipboard photo frame, a die cut heart and a label that I stamped with a Happy Winter sentiment.

All the supplies used are pictured below.

To recap the last 6 days of gift wrap…. we’ve stamped, colored, stenciled, and heat embossed a variety of designs onto brown paper bags of different sizes.  Scroll back on the blog to see each one individually featured along with the supplies and techniques used.
