Short & Wide 9″ X 6.1/2 X 5″ Gift Bags

Hello everyone, following on from yesterday’s Deluxe Selection Box tutorial, I’ve made these gift bags to hold them all.

Of course, these gift bags can be made to hold anything you like but I made these for the 3 Selection Boxes I shared yesterday.

The size of these makes them perfect for holding some perfume or makeup gift sets, chocolate boxes and many other gift boxes that are short and wide.

This style is also perfect for carrying a cake or some Christmas treats for a party.

I love how everything matches, making an inexpensive gift look very special.

I initially had these tags on the Selection Boxes, but I decided to use them on the gift bag instead, and I think they look great.
