'Peace' Holiday gift bag | Jaclyn Rench November 03, 2017 07:00

Hi Just Nick friends, it's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today.  I realize that the calendar just turned over to November but I'm already thinking about (and doing some) crafting for the holidays!  It's never to early to work on gifts and/or gift packaging, in my opinion.

After Christmas last year, I scored a bunch of cute linen gift bags on clearance, for only pennies a piece.  I set them aside, knowing that their blank canvas would be fun to decorate and customize with my paper crafting supplies, as the next year's holiday season approached.  To make this festive project, I simply added to my supplies: a scrap of glitter gold heat transfer vinyl, a shipping tag and some Just Nick holiday cut files.

The first step was to cut a seasonal sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments digital cut design.  There are a variety of words and phrases to choose from in this file, but I chose 'peace', knowing that the simple font would be easily legible cut from glittery gold. I made sure to cut a mirror image of my design, so that when ironed onto my canvas tote, it would read correctly.

I thought the Layered Poinsettia design would make a nice dimensional accent on my bag and allow me to incorporate some more color.  I cut the poinsettia from red cardstock, green tone on tone patterned paper, and even threw in a layer of glittery red paper for an added pop of sparkle and shine.  I finished off the flower with a gold sequined center and adhered it to my bag with hot glue, centered above my iron on.

I needed a place to add who the gift was 'to' and 'from' so that's where the shipping tag came in.  I, again, chose to dress it up with a Just Nick file but not in the traditional sense.  Rather than cut the 'warm wishes' sentiment, I used my silhouette software to fill the design with color, add additional text and print it all onto my blank tag.  It makes a nice finishing piece to the packaging.

Here's one more look at the finished design.  I'll definitely be duplicating this idea over and over again to have a stash of pretty packaging for my Christmas gift giving this year!  I hope this post inspires you to do the same!
