Decorated Gift Bag and Tissue

This time of year we are wrapping gifts in preparation for the Big Day.  I gave up wrapping in paper several years ago…. the shapes were too weird to wrap neatly or the parcels looked too lumpy and unappetising!.  I started to use gift bags and tissue paper, a much quicker and easier (and neater!) solution.

Gift bags and tissue can be expensive so I buy plain bags from the craft stores and plain tissue from the dollar store ( 40 sheets for $1) Then I get out my inks and stamp sets and decorate to my hearts’ content.

I have a number of hostess gifts this year so this is the bag/tissue combination I  have been working on today…..

The stamp set is Joyful Christmas and I used Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Crushed Curry inks. Now I have some lovely, elegant gifts to take with me.

I hope this gives you an idea for your future gift wrapping……..
