Gift bags

My we r memory keepers punch board for gift bags has arrived! Just in time for this weeks MIM challenge for Papertrey Ink to make a stamped paper bag. The first bags are made using patterned paper, this is some I bought in a sale ages ago so I was glad to put it to use.
When I made my first bag using the punch board I followed the youtube tutorial thinking the guy demonstrating was joking when he said after making one it's easy but it is! These contain the Lindt chocolate reindeer (just fits) and father christmas (perfect fit):
When I went to make a stamped paper bag finding paper was a problem....I had some paper that wasn't strong enough so tried a light cardstock (this isn't as easy to use with the board). I was pleased to make an adult looking bag and filled it with 4 Cadbury's chocolate bars. My daughter's teacher loves this type of chocolate so it will probably be for her. This was I thought an inexpensive present as the chocolate bars cost me £1 but I then saw an advert for selection boxes buy 1 get 2 free which gives you more chocolate for the same price!
The first bags have die cut tags but I made one for the stamped bag as I didn't want to cover the cute gingerbread man. The snowflake strip was added at the end ( I bought a MS punch when I first started crafting but dies are much better as it only likes some cardstock and is not that easy to punch!).

Thanks in advance for any kind comments.

  1. cute bags. I can't wait for a little time off this weekend to make some bags (it's our 4 day weekend for Thanksgiving in the US).

  2. I'm loving the envelope board, but haven't seen this one in action - will definitely check it out - these gift bags are terrific!

  3. Ohhh what great gift bags, Victoria! Love the colorful paper on the first two and the cute stamps on the white bag!
