Easy Holiday Gift Bag

I love little brown lunch sacks-- although I never use them for my lunch! There are so many cute things you can do with them and you can get a huge package of them at your local grocery store… usually for less than $2!

For this gift bag, I cut down the brown lunch sack to about 6 inches.  Then I cut a front and back piece  out of red card stock to 5.5 X 8.5. I used the XL oval punch to punch a handle in each side.  Note: You can't punch through 2 layers at once so punch one side then line it up to punch the other piece. 

Then decorate the front and back as you like and  glue them onto the bag.. .make sure you use a strong adhesive when attaching  the layers and when gluing to the bag (such as sticky strip or the glue in the green bottle)… you don't want your gift bag to fall apart! 

You can't see it really well in the photo , I rolled over the whole background using the music notes wheel stamp… I really should use rollers more often, they are so easy! Then I embossed the middle green layer with the Fancy Fan embossing folder on the big shot. The bird image is from the set Beautiful Season and so is the tag. I cut out the shape that the bird is stamped in with the Framelits Labels collection dies on the big shot. 

You can't put anything too heavy in these gift bags but they're perfect for giving cards or cookies or other little gifts!
