Hand Decorated Mini Christmas Gift Bag

Perfect for giving gift cards and small holiday treats!

How to:

– start with a plain paper gift bag (I used good ol’ recycled kraft brown)
– cut out various shapes & sizes of backgrounds from old Christmas cards
– stamp & heat emboss a seasonal sentiment on a solid piece of cardstock (I used “No Peeking!” on textured bazzil)
– adhere sentiment as the top layer
– stuff the bag with matching tissue paper and tie a ribbon on the handles to jazz it up even more
