Packing Up Presents

Along with the gift tags, cards and notepads I’ve been making for presents, I decided to make some sets of mini notepads that you could just throw in your bag.

I made sets of 4 mini notepads which were 3″ wide by 6″ high. They were made using printer paper and a piece of patterned paper and simply stapled together.

To package them up I just put the 4 mini notepads in a cello bag and added a scallop square with what they were and how many.

These were really quick and easy to make.

Now that the presents were coming together I just wrapped them up in some gold tissue paper and added them to  the gift bags.

I made the gift bags by taking apart an old gift bag and using it as a template.

I thought the gift bags were a bit plain so decided to stamp them with a snowflake stamp in cloud white versa magic ink.

To finish the bags off I added a gift tag.  The trees on the tags were made using the tutorial by Teacher Jessy.

In total I made 8 sets of presents, contents varying slightly, but all had a gift bag and gift tag so were slightly time consuming, especially the bags, but were worth it looking at the end of the end result. Not too fancy but prettier than basic wrapping paper.
