Gift Idea Week: Bags & Boxes

This time of year means gift giving and like many of you I have a lot of time and very little money, so I go in search of simple ideas I can recreate with little time and money. Our design team will inspire you all week long with their own gift giving ideas. So be sure to visit each day and let us know what inspired YOU!

Gift Card Bags by Nancy Damiano
Every year I give out a ton of cards to teachers, coaches and co-workers. I usually buy containers, but this year I wanted to make something and a personal touch. I cut the kraft bags with my Silhouette and used the Santa's Workshop line to decorate them. I love the bright color palette and whimsical designs. I whipped up a batch of these in no time!
Supplies: Santa's Workshop Patterned Paper, Doodle Pops (Little Helper, Wreath & Poinsettia), Doodles Cardstock stickers (Merry Christmas in lily, licorice 

Gift Set by Elizabeth Carney
This gift is very special for Dayv and I to be giving to Alyssa this year for Christmas. We are giving Alyssa a purity ring. So this Christmas present had to be different and non-traditional. We wanted it to be special in that from the outside of the bag to the contents inside we wanted her to know that she is loved, cherished, cared for, and for something that she can hold onto until she marries. Using the Classic Collection with pops of color from Swimming Pool made it so that this gift will stand out amongst the others and let her know the importance of it as well. I wanted to create a gift that was classy and grown up for such an occasion as this. Something to remember is that when gift giving at a certain time of year, don’t be afraid to do something different such as I did here with using non-traditional Christmas colors! I want this present to be remembered always.
