Bags or Gift Boxes

Morning Everyone.
 
Have you done anything nice this week?  I have had my first proper French lesson.  I really enjoyed it.  But I have a long road ahead of me and one day it might all suddenly click.  What I learnt was very similar to what my daughter is learning at school so hopefully we will be able to help each other.
 
So todays craft project is this very cute gift bag.

 
The challenge this week at Daring Cardmakers is to make or decorate a gift bag or box.
 
I didn't read the description properly and I thought I had cheated as I bought the bag as it was such a bargain at 30 cents from my local craft shop.  But I haven't as you can decorate a bag or box.
 
For this project I used a selection of dies and some washi tape.
 
I used the Die D-Lies Candy Cane die from the Spellbinders 2017 holiday collection.  I cut this from mirror card and glitter card and glued them to the front of the bag.  Next I used Die D-Lites Ho Ho Ho from the Spellbinders 2017 holiday collection.  I cut this from red mirror card stock.  I also added a couple of pieces of washi tape.
 
 
A very cheap and quick alternative to buying an expensive gift bag for your presents.
 
Here is another way to dress your bag up using the same die set as before from Spellbinders but this time I used all of the sentiments and created a tree shape.
 
 
The little silver bow is from the Die D-Lies Candy Cane Set and the star is from the set called Lets Party Shining Star.  I just used the largest star from the set.
 
 
I had so much fun making this project that I will have to go out and buy more bags so that I can make them for the rest of my family.
 
Please stop by the Design Team Blogs over at Daring Cardmakers for more lovely inspiration and we can't wait to see what you create.

  2. These look great Dawn, I love the tree built from sentiments! I did A level French but so long ago that it's neither use nor ornament to me now! Good luck with your lessons!
