Well I spent the better part of my Sunday getting gifts wrapped. I just had to show you something I redid to change it from a takeout bag to a bag that now has a Christmas gift in it.
I'm sure this has happened to us all at one time or another. You buy a gift. It doesn't come in a box and you are stuck trying to figure a way to have this gift make a really beautiful presentation.
OK, here is what I decided to start with. A take out bag from a local restaurant.
Next I decided to add a bag bonnet to the top, just to give it some added pizzazz. The die I have is from AccuCut and the bonnet is really for a regular size gift bag. However I decided to fold it the opposite way to give me the width I needed for this huge bag. So as I cut the paper out, I kept moving the cut mat so the slit would not be cut. After I cut the bonnet out I folded it in half long ways and made the slit myself.
Oh, I used a snowflake embossing folder and added that dimension to the bonnet. And here is the finished project.
I also had to make a lid for a box that came with no lid. Got the box at Target in the $1.00 section and it is cute, but no lid. Stop in tomorrow for a quick peek at how I fixed that, and, to see all the other gifts all wrapped up, and ready for Santa to deliver them.
Counting today, 6 more shopping days. See you tomorrow.
