Lots of lovely bags made easily ...

Nothing satisfies me more as a crafter than ' doing it myself ' I just love knowing I can create what I like when I like without the need for shop bought. Christmas is a time for me when I really go all out and my gifts get the luxury treatment. 

One advantage of being a demonstrator with Stampin' Up! is I always have plenty of things to hand ...and obviously that everything I buy is at a whopping discount. So its cheaper for me to make my own ...its the whole reason I joined I LOVE saving money.

You can create just about any size bag on the gift bag punch board. To get you started there are sizes and direct precise instructions on the actual board for a small, medium and large bag. Once mastered you would be able to make different sizes all day long.

And there is nothing more luxurious this year than the Cheers to the year suite. Im a Loe so its not a difficult choice for me to be drawn to gold and glitzy which and an elegant glamour to any project.

Dress them up or leave them plain the choice is yours. With a vast array of inexpensive embellishments available it is not difficult to get great results and fast. Add a stamped sentiment for that extra hand made feel and your good to go. Making these is way more fun than wrapping gifts in boring wrapping paper thats for sure. And they fold flat until you need them. 

I have listed the products used below for you and I also have a full step by step tutorial on my YouTube channel for you to follow along to. So grab a brew...get festive and enjoy the video.
