Not to go back to Christmas so soon, but here is an example of how easy stamping can make your life! When you need a gift bag, grab a lunch sack that you probably have in your pantry or can buy a whole package at a discount or grocery store. Stamp it, trim the very top off to look a little neater and straighter (I used the Scallop Edge Punch on mine), and fold it over. Punch two holes in the top and put a beautiful ribbon through (this one is the lovely Riding Hood Red/Very Vanilla on page 23 in the Holiday Mini)….tie in a knot or a bow, hang a tag from it if you want. Done!
If you want to jazz it up a little, add some eyelets, or for a nicer outside, adhere designer paper or cardstock to the bag. Sometimes just the plain brown paper bag is the most decorative, though!
