Brilliant Festive Gift Bags 6 x 2.1/2 x 7

Hi everyone, today I have these fun gift bags to share.

I love creating funny, novelty gift bags and really enjoyed doing these.

Brilliant Festive Gift Bags 6 x 2.1/2 x 7

By using supplies most of us already have in our craft stash and a little creativity you can make these easy gift bags.

I made a Santa, Elf and Mrs. Clause version, I think next I will do a Snowman and a Christmas pudding!

Speaking of Christmas Puddings, check out last year’s festive bags below.

I used real metal buckles on these bags, but as I mention in my tutorial, it’s not a necessity but I do think they give the bags a very authentic look and some texture.
