Anyway this week I will be following on from Shelley's bags and doing some of my own, nothing anywhere near as good as last weeks though.
I bought some plain brown bags and have literally just stuck papers on them and then glued on either die cuts I made and coloured or used precut shapes to decorate. I also added ribbon and buttons for a 'luxury' feel to the bags. These buttons and ribbons are purely odd scraps I have left from other projects. One bag has charms on, these can be expensive so think carefully about if you wish to use them on the bags.
I bought the template from Cut and Craft however, the one I used is no longer available as it came with a handbag template, however the link will take you to the 'giftbag' identical to the one I have used here. Although I have used acetate for the sides, you don't have to, if you wish to keep the gift hidden then used card and decorate it. This is a fantastic company and I urge that you support them and do not duplicate the templates for anyone else free of charge or for a charge.
This bag template came with the gift bag and I placed my gifts inside this bag in the gift bag.
