Embellished Gift Bags for the Holidays

It is easy to decorate a plain gift bag for any occasion, and the Pretty Presents Designer Bows in the Holiday Catalog are a nice large accent to dress up a bag for Christmas.  It is more economical to buy the plain bags and decorate them yourself, and it is a fun project too.  You can find the plain bags at your local craft store.

In addition to the large bow, I added a Frosted Finishes Embellishments to the center of the bow to dress it up a bit more.  I also stamped my bag with snowflakes from the Festive Flurry Stamp Set.  I added a tag from the Tag It Stamp Set, and attached it loosely to the handle with some retired Real Red Silk Ribbon and Linen Thread.  Just add some tissue paper and your bag is ready to be used. These are big sellers at craft fairs too. 

The following were used:
Stamp Sets:  Festive Flurry #131778 w or #131781 c, Tag It #130300 w or #131303 c
Ink:  Real Red
Embellishments:  Pretty Presents Designer Bows #132186,  Frosted Finishes #132150
Ribbon:  Linen Thread #104199
