Novelty Penguin Gift Bags

Hi everyone, today I have these adorable Penguin Gift Bags to share.

Novelty Penguin Gift Bags

These are a large size and can hold many things, however, I made these for some wine I’m giving to friends this year.

I pulled out my Cricut machine to make these and used the First Edition ‘Buildable Christmas’ USB drive.

There are many great cut files on this USB but I was drawn to this cute Penguin.

I covered the fur on the hat using my artificial snow, it gives texture and a more realistic look!

First Edition ‘Buildable Christmas’ USB Drive available here.

If you have this USB or want to make something of a similar size, the whole bag is approximately 12.1/2 high and I blew the image up on Cricut Design Space to 11″ tall, everything else in the file will increase too, so all of the proportions will be correct.

You will also need 2 pieces of 11.3/4 x 4″ white card.

Score along the 11.3/4 side at 3″

Score along the 4″ side at 1/2″ & 3.1/2

Check out my full tutorial below.

I love creating these novelty style gift bags and boxes and I hope you enjoyed it too.

Happy crafting
