Make gifting personal, Sweet Friends, as it’s so important, and Christmas is the time to do it. Are you looking for gift wrapping ideas this holiday season? If so, you have come to the right place. We are on the count down as it’s less than a week before Christmas Day.
Gift giving is always thoughtful but making it personal adds an amazing touch. Gift wrap bags is the easiest way to make your gift personal, especially if your gift is not handmade. I created Gift Bags last year using some of my favorite products. This project is on You Tube and if you missed it last year, be sure to check it out here. I’m providing a written tutorial at the end of the post and all the products you need to create these personal “One of a Kind” Gift Bags.
Holiday Gift Bag DIY!
Have you wrapped your holiday gifts? Are you looking for a fun and easy way to personalize your gift bags.
Last year I purchased plain white gift bags from the Dollar Store and prettied them up for my friends and family. You can watch it on video here, “DIY Holiday Gift Bag with A Maker’s Studio products.”
I love and use all of A Maker’s Studio products. I find they are my go to when I am in a crafty mood. If I want to make something personal for friends and family, I can easily just go into my craft closet and get started.
In the “DIY Holiday Gift Bag with A Maker’s Studio products” I used Gel Art Ink and Adhesive Mesh Stencils. The stencils can be used over and over again. If you’d like to purchase any A Maker’s Studio products, you can go to my shop page, Www.CreateWithCynthiaShop.com or click here.
For more information you can also read my post, “DIY Holiday Gift Bags” from last year here.
Materials needed for making the Gift Bags:
- A Maker’s Studio Gel Art Ink
- A Maker’s Studio Mesh Adhesive Stencils
- A Maker’s Studio Scraper or Foam brush
- White Gift Bags – purchase at the Dollar Store or on Amazon below.
Instructions for making the Gift Bags:
- Choose your stencil and ink or paint. I’m using Adhesive Mesh Stencils and Gel Art Ink from A Maker’s Studio.
2. A Maker’s Studio Adhesive Mesh Stencils can be cut so each image is manageable and easier to adhere to the surface. The stencil has perforated lines to tell you wear to cut.
3. Remove stencil from backing and place on bag.
4. Apply Gel Art Ink to scrapper and then scrap ink onto stencil. Scrap stencil so that ink penetrates through mesh onto bag.
5. Remove stencil and let bag dry for 30 minutes.
6. Wash stencil in soap and water.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my week full of gifting and found enjoyment and inspiration to get creative.
