Gift Bags

Hopefully the post that follows is a bit more creative than that title…!

Are you looking for some ideas of different ways to wrap up some little gifts?  Maybe in a more eco-friendly way than using paper that ends up in the garbage?  Look no further.  Remember these adorable little muslin bags that Lori has in the store?  I had those and some other similar ones that come each month in a kit club I subscribe to and they were just begging for a cute way to be used.

Here’s what I came up with.  A few dies, some Heat ‘N’ Bond, raid your fabric stash and you are ready to roll!  With the paper backing on the fabric, the pieces roll through the die cut machine (I used the Sizzix BigKick) like a dream!  Even the wafer dies and Sizzlets.

I was unsure about how the burlap would cut, but I had a piece from an old bag that was already plastic backed and that stabilized it beautifully.  I still ironed Heat ‘N’ Bond on the backside, cut the letters, and heat adhered them on the top.  Shockingly easy for something that looks so cute!

These snowflakes are actually glitter paper.  I treated it the same as the fabric, except for the final step where you lay the iron on top of the die cut and the muslin bag to adhere everything.  I wasn’t sure of the glitter and didn’t want to risk it melting, so I used a piece of fabric as a pressing cloth for protection.

And finally one more.  This one will make a cute little Valentine or any occasion gift bag.
