Festive Holiday Gift Bags!

Vicki's my day to share December inspiration with you. 

Christmas is only 12 days away and it's crunch time for many holiday shoppers.  Finding that special gift isn't always easy and gift cards have become more popular in these busy times.  It takes the guess work out of buying the right size, color, style or taste of the gift recipient.

This month, the Design Team is sharing lots of inspiration on how to package your gifts to make them look pretty and elegant.  I have chosen to alter mini gift bags and boxes that I will be able to use for the gift cards that we are giving this Christmas.'s my mini bag/box inspiration for you.

Gift Card Holders

First up is a mini kraft and gold striped gable box that I embellished with a sprig of holly and a gorgeous green sheer bow.  The background is white paper doily.  I glued the "Merry Christmas" sentiment to a burlap tag.

Next is a white mini bag that I covered with pieces of patterned paper from a new collection I recently purchased.  The colors were perfect with the sheer maroon ribbon in our DT product.

I used some leftover silver ribbon from our November product to create the bow for my final mini bag.  The patterned paper was in my stash from years ago.  I embellished the bag with a dimensional die cut snowflake to pick up the pattern in the paper.

Vicki your bags are so pretty. Whoever gets a gift in one of these bags will love the bag as much as the gift itself. All so different and all so creative.
