Christmas Craft Bags

I realise it is the 24th of November but I needed to get a start on my Christmas crafts. I am knitting or crafting a lot of presents this year (as requested) so I need to get ahead on my wrapping too! This whole idea came to me while doing the mundane shopping trip to Tesco. Then I spied these plain red bags for 30 cent each  (also on a 3 for 2 offer!!) and my craft-sense started tingling.

  • Plain bags from Tesco or craft store
  • Some xmas decorations (I got my snowflakes 8 for 2 euro in the euro shop)
  • Some glue
  • Xmas stamps (I got mine in the Art & Hobby shop for 2 euro)
  • Ink pad
  • Glitter

The first thing I did was to fix my snowflake on to the center of the bag using some glue like so.

Then I stamped on the  xmas stamps and decorated with some glitter. Its easy simple fast and I have lots of tissue paper to make the bags even prettier :)  I also think its a great idea to keep kids entertained for an afternoon. Here is my snowflake bag and I'm off to make some more.
