If you haven’t guessed by now, we are having a PACKAGING / DIY GIFT WRAP week here on the blog! I am so loving all of these inspirational ideas that can be used not only for your DIY Christmas gift wrap but also for your pretty packages all year round!! Amanda has a cute take on the muslin gift bags today and of course I LOVE it because gold glitter is involved! Yes please!!
I’ve been wrapping Christmas gifts like a little elf this week. I currently can’t see my living room floor as ribbons, bows and all the needed accessories are scattered about. At one point I had 2 scissors and had to go find a 3rd after misplacing the first two!
This year I am loving these 8×10 canvas bags to package my gifts. Most of my gifts are smaller, so they work great . No need for boxes and the best part, they can be reused next year by the recipient.
I knew I wanted to create a cute paper tag for the top of my gift bag so I grabbed my favorite polka dot paper from the SHINE collection. I love that this line can be used for a wide variety of occasions. Once I cut my paper in the shape of a banner flag I gathered a few accessories to layer. For the top of my flag I created a coffee filter bow and added a glitter star from the gold embellishent pack.
Once I had the start of my tag created, I added the “all the joy” sticker and then added a gold leather bow from the Confetti collection.
Lastly, I added a DEC. stamp which I think wraps this tag all together .
You can never have too much gold glitter, especially during Christmas! To create the gold glittered canvas bag I started off by sectioning off my bag with a piece of washi tape. I found it helps to place a white piece of paper over the area that you don’t want glittered.
Begin spraying the bag until fully covered. You will be surprised you don’t need a lot. When you are finished set aside to dry.
Once your bag is dry add your paper tag to the top using a clip or clothes pin. I added in a few tassels and a mini honeycomb ball.
So fun right!!!! Maybe not the glitter all over but these cute DIY bags are worth it.
