Hi there! It's Melissa and this week I am going to share some quick and easy Christmas gift bags with you.
First up, you will want to gather your supplies:
I have pulled lots of Winter/Christmas paper scraps, some assorted ribbon, jingle bells, Action Wobblers, some of my favorite Repeat Impressions holiday stamps and a couple of Tootsie Rolls...a girl always needs a little sugar to help her when she is crafting :)
Stamp and color your images (do several at once):
Once your images are stamped, colored and cut out, set aside and work on some decorative panels for your bags, here is a close up of one of the bags:
I used the Repeat Impressions Holly Santa #302-K and the Merry Christmas #1141-F to create my gift bags. I stamped Santa in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored him with Spectrum Noir markers. The sentiment was stamped in the same ink and then I inked up the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink. I cut the decorative panels with dies and also edged them with the Brushed Corduroy ink. Mr. Santa is on an Action Wobbler as he likes to dance :)
Now, here are all of the gift bags that I made:
I hope I have inspired you to decorate some gift bags, if so be sure to come on back and share them with us by leaving a link in the comments.
Have a great day,
