Christmas Gift Bags

Stitched Felt pieces from the Holiday Mini Catalog were the perfect adornment for my decorated gift bags.  Now the recipient not only gets a nice present inside the bag, they also have a removable accent piece that can be used to decorate the Christmas tree.

The plain bags were purchased at a local craft store, and I decorated them with Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Series Paper and the Winter Wishes Stitched Felt pieces.  I also dressed them up a bit more with a few punches, some ribbon and buttons, and a sentiment.   You can save yourself a lot of money decorating your own bags and it is a lot of fun too.

The following were used:
Designer Series Paper: Holly Berry Bouquet #124004 (Holiday Mini)
Glimmer Paper:  Red #121790
Stamp Sets:  Tags til Christmas #120847 wood or #121169 clear, Delightful Decorations #116517
Ink:  Real Red #103133, Old Olive #102277
Cardstock:  Whisper White #100730, Real Red #102482
Ribbon:  Real Red 5/8" Satin #117286, Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain #109034
Punches:  Ornament #119847, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle #11954, Decorative Label #120907, Scallop Edge Border #119882
Embellishments:  Holly Berry Bouquet Buttons #125636,Winter Wishes Stitched Felt #124108 (both from the Holiday Mini), Brights Glimmer Brad #121006

Love how you used the stitched felt pieces on the bags. They add just the right touch.
