Gift Bags


I'm a huge Roben-Marie Smith fan. So when she posted this clever gift bag tutorial on her blog, I made a cup of tea to sit down and watch. Why not . . . I thought . . .  use red, green, white or blue bags? Why not use bits of colored paper and ribbons? Why not use glitter and chipboard cut outs? Hope you enjoy this video as much as I did.

Wishing you a day filled with inspiration!

Great tutorial Terri- thanks for sharing this. Wonderful ideas and with a sewing machine designs can be made easily. I love brown paper as a starting point too. Thank you for your lovely comments and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving feast this upcoming week!

I SO WISH I had seen this yesterday. It is the perfect gift bag for the swap items I made. I struggled more with the packaging than the art, so this is a wonderful idea. Thanks so much for sharing it. I will tuck it away in my brain and use it the next time I need a little bag.

Hope you had a lovely weekend, dear. I'm sure I've missed SO much on your blog this past week, so will be catching up on what you have done this week.

That was fun. I wonder what machine she had that she could so easily just pick it up and move it so quickly when she wanted it out of the way.
Today I made boxes with grocery bags covered in fabric. Really cute. I love all this crafty stuff.
