The strong acetate works really well for these gift bags and makes the bags look like a gift in themselves!

I used the simply gorgeous Dovecraft, Fairy Tales collection to make these, you can find the whole collection over on my Amazon Storefront here.

The toppers used are from the pretty decoupage pack.


These gift bags measure 4″ x 8″ which I find to be a great size for most gifts.

I used is the 12″ x 12″ Papermania Acetate by Docrafts. It’s really strong a wonderful to work with.

I’ve found this available on here on Amazon for a good price.
