Tutorial #1

Christmas Gift Bag with Card
Do you love to make your own personalized wrapping for gifts? Try this!!!
Its easy, and creative project to dress up ordinary paper gift bags.
Pull out your backgrounder stamps, ink, lace, ribbons, buttons, cardstock, and whatever you have to make a personalized gift bag.

Lesley is planning on using red stickles to write the gift recipient's name on the stocking.

The stocking decoration on the front is actually a card that opens on the left, and you can put your personal greetings inside.
