Jingle Bell Gift Tags

Posted by on Nov 26, 2013 in Christmas, crafts | 7 comments

I’m a sucker for a clearance aisle.

And, when I find something marked way downI usually buy in volume. :)

So, I’m guessing that’s what happened with the white gift bags that I found in the back of my closet.

I must have gotten them for a song…which is code for, “I don’t really know how much I paid for them… but they must have been cheap…because I bought 25.”

But, to make a plain white gift bag worthy of a Christmas gift, they’re going to need a little something “special.”

So, here are 3 attempts at making the white gift bags look special.

  6. These ARE cute!

    Maybe these will replace the ones my family had growing up that had “Merry Christmas 1983″ where the 1983 was scratched out and changed each year to reflect the current year.

    I’m 42 and I think I got a present last year from my mom with the tag on it from the Christmas I got my first electric razor as a 7th grader.

    …and it might have been the same wrapping paper as well.

  7. These are adorable and so festive!Not to mention simple enough for me to attempt…
