Sweetest Christmas Gift Bags

Sweetest Christmas Gift Bag

This cute little bag uses Stampin’Up!’s Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper, Sweet Candy Cane stamp set, and Lights Aglow Dies.

Making handmade greeting cards with Stampin’ Up! products is fun and satisfying, but it’s awesome there are other a lot of other projects to make. With our rubber stamps, ink, and paper, we can also create a host of small gift items and gift packaging. In today’s post, you’ll learn how to create a small gift bag with the Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper.

With this simple design,(inspired by In the Pink Designs by Cathryn) you can use many patterned papers, stamp sets, and ribbons to create a variety of different gift bags. Fill the gift bags with chocolates and other goodies to give to neighbors, co-workers, gym buddies, book club pals, and more.

Merry and Bright Gift Bag

This easy-to-create gift bag uses Stampin’ Up!’s Festive Foils Designer Series Paper, Brightest Glow Stamp Set, and Labels Aglow Dies.

To create the pattern for the box, cut a piece of Designer Series Paper to 8 inches by 5 1/2 inches. You’ll be able to make two bags from each piece of 12 x 12 paper. 

On the 8-inch side, score at: 1 1/4″, 3 3/4″, 5″, and 7 1/2″

On the 5 1/2-inch side, score at: 1 1/4″ and 4 1/4″

With your snips, trim the pieces as shown below. Also, watch the how-to video below for a visual look at how these bags come together.

Fold into a box, secure with Tear & Tape and decorate as you wish with sentiments, ribbon, and embellishments.

Sweetest Cherries Peekaboo Bags

Sweetest Cherries Peekaboo Bag

Isn’t Stampin’ Up!’s Sweetest Cherries just the cutest? The stamp set and punch combo make it an affordable purchase, as well as easy and versatile to use. Purchase them as a bundle and save 10 percent. Find them on page 19 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2022-2023 Annual Catalog.

Today, I paired the bundle with Stampin’ Up!’s Peekaboo Treat Bags. Find these on page 140 of Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. You receive 10 treat bags (five craft and five white) for $6.00. There are so many ways to dress these up. I’m just showing you one option. I added pieces of Designer Series Paper (pieces of Old Olive from the Regals 6 x 6 Paper Assortments). But you could stamp on them and add tags and die cuts.

I can see them work for special occasions such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. But they would also work well as gift card holders and most especially sweet treats. I found a variety of fun, cherry flavored candies to put in these after decorating.

Be sure to watch the video to learn a fun technique using clear embossing powder. This technique gives the cherry a lifelike shine.
