The Sisters in Stamping blog is putting up some quick gift wrapping ideas for this weeks edition of Fabulous Friday. Here is my gift bag for this week--
I'm always on the hunt for new ways to wrap gifts for little or no money, one of the reasons why I like stamping so much. My husband says I'm waaaaay to practical. Here is a picture tutorial on how to make this cute little bag. I'm using some 2 sided 12x12 Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper called Be of Good Cheer.
Step Three: "Wrap" the end of the box like you would a gift.
Step Five: Pinch the sides in and fold top down, and decorate with a ribbon and tag.
**To find a box to wrap of your own cut a string the length of the longest side of your paper. My paper is square, so my string was 12" long. Take that string to your pantry or to the grocery store and wrap it around a box to see if it will work...it needs to overlap at least a 1/4". You only need one box and it helps if it is still full of food, it will wrap better if it's heavy. There you go-- I have that box of cookie mix in my craft room and I can "wrap" myself up a bag any time I need it in whatever theme I need it in.
Thank-you for stopping by!
Happy Stamping, Karla c(:
