|Supplies used: Die Cuts with a View Candy Cane Lane Stack; Love My Tapes black glitter paper and red & white striped washi tape; American Crafts red twine; Jenni Bowlin red adhesive pearls; Michaels glittery red ribbon.|
A kraft colored bag or container is always a good starting point, for a project like this. Using a neutral base, allows you to work in just about any color palette you might have on hand. I purchased my kraft gift bags at my local dollar store - 4 for $1.00!
For the two bags I'm showcasing today, I used the Candy Cane lane stack from Die Cuts with a View. It features a bold combination of red, black and white alongside some graphic yet elegant images.
Both bags have a wide glitter banner, cut from the Love My Tapes adhesive glitter sheets, as a backdrop. The banner is not only pretty, but creates a nice focal point for the greeting tag.
The tags were cut from the Candy Cane Lane papers and simply embellished with a strip or two of washi tape and some pretty adhesive pearls. The back of the tags are blank to write my 'to and from' message, and are finished off with a tie of sparkly ribbon and some matching twine.
The best part about this project is that, once my supplies were gathered, I put together these two bags (present inside and tags addressed) in under ten minutes!
I hope this gives you some hints for completing your holiday wrapping! Thanks for stopping by!
