Holiday Gift Bags!

Hi Everyone! Hope you all are gearing up for a wonderful Holiday season! There have been some AMAZING ideas and tutorials here on the blog and I hope you all have found them helpful, fun, and inspiring!
My fellow Design Team girls ROCK!
Today I just want to encourage you to use your stamps this holiday for more than just cards! You have seen wine charms, gift card holders, and candles, but you always need something to put those things inside!!! Here I have a super cute Rubber Romance Stamp (See the selection here), a holiday patterned paper (Smitten mitten by Cosmo Cricket), Copic Ciao Markers, American Craft Ribbon, Stickles by Ranger, and a 59 cent gift bag from Michael's.

First I cut and adhered my patterned paper to the gift bag.

Next, I stamped my image and colored it with my copics to match my paper. I then accented my image with stickles to give it a little bling!

I then attached the image to my gift bag and tied my ribbon at the top.

For a super easy gift. I bought a glass bottle at Michael's and filled with red and green candy and tied some coordinating ribbon and tulle at the top of the corked bottle.

Place your bottle in the bag and you don't even need tissue paper! The adorable Rubber Romance image decorates the gift bag perfectly!

Put your Rubber Romance Stamps to work this holiday season and encourage those around you to tap into their creative side too! Happy gift giving!


  1. I was wondering how to add a stamp to my gift bag, b/c I had only thought about stamping it straight to the bag, not on another paper then taping on. Thanks for the info. There are some of us who appreciate the simple ideas and inspiration!!- Amy G.

  2. What a cute stamp! Love her sparkle! I always enjoy seeing the stamps you all use! TFS!

  3. LOVE the idea. It would be a bag I wouldn't want to give away! I agree with commenter Amy above too, you all are all so talented when you share, way more than myself, so simple ideas are best for me. I love that I can get this done quick and fast inbetween soccer practice, dinner, and bedtime! All these holidays are such a busy time! I really love you little bag and the candy jar is a great idea!!
