It's Kathy D., with a Thanksgiving two day special with tutorials on how to wrap it in style! I figured you will be going shopping later tonight and tomorrow to get all those deals and would need some cute packaging ideals.
So first up are ideals on how to spruce up plain bags and make them something special that the receiver will just love to have.
As you can see the bags can be simple or more in detail it is all up to you.
Let's start with the stocking bag.
EK Success Scallop Punch
Martha Stewart dotted scallop corner set punch
Versa Magic Black Ink pad
Kraft med size bag
Print out the image (5.3 in x 3.2 in) twice one on cream paper and one on white paper.
Print out tag on cream paper.
Cut out the bottom of the cream stocking as seen above.
Cut out the top of the white stocking as seen above.
**to cover up any imperfections from your cutting take a black marker and outline the image.
Glue down the white top piece on the cream stocking.
Put pop dots on the back to make it look 3-D.
Cut the stripped patterned paper 1 1/2 x 9 inches. Punch one edge with a scalloped punch.
Cut the green patterned paper 5 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches.
Cut the red 5 x 6 3/4. Punch with edge and corner punch.
Punch 3 small circles and adhere as shown.
Tie tag with twine.
Fill with presents and you are ready for Christmas!
The next one is a little more in depth.
Medium size white craft bag
Use a medium size white craft bag.
Put down 1/4 inch score tape at the top of the bag.
Put down 1/2 inch score tape below that.
Put down 1/4 inch score tape below that. So you have a skinny, fat, skinny layer of score tape.
Rub on the skinny pieces to make sure they are sealed well.
ONLY Take off the backing of the middle piece of score tape (1/2 inch).
Pour dark blue glitter on the score-tape.
Take off the two smaller pieces of score-tape backing and pour light blue glitter on it.
Add patterned paper to the bottom of the bag.
Print out two images of the Toasty Bears (3.6 inches high).
Cut out one image and put pop dots on the back of them.
Cut out the other image leaving a white border.
Mat on blue and then on white.
Adhear the image to the bag.
I traced out a scallop circle I had to make a tag. Print saying on the middle circle.
And here is a real simple one.
