Quick and Easy Gift Bags

Last night, Becky Olsen, hosted a class over in the CHF Forums on making quick and easy gift bags. She used the new Thomas Kinkade Christmas Series Paper for her class. I decided to make one using paper from the Thomas Kinkade Masculine Series.

What a quick, easy, and fun way to dress up a plain old gift bag! Here's what I came up with:

-sentiment from Silhouette Blooms II(Kim Hughes)

-Thomas Kinkade Masculine Series Paper

-large grommets We R Memory Keepers
-Ofray ribbon

-Nestabilities by Spellbinder

Then I decided to try to make one with some paper from the new Kim Hughes Mocha Chica Paper.

-small gift bag from Michael's
-Mocha Chica paper pack

-Doodle Bug Brads
-Ofray Ribbon

You can buy a pack of cheap little bags at most of the craft stores and in just a few minutes have them looking like you spent a ton of money on a custom bag.

If you haven't come by to check out these great classes yet, you really should because they are a lot of fun!
