Pootles Advent Countdown #11 Trim the Tree Bag Tutorial


Oooooo teeny tiny treat bag!

Love. IT!

I have made this style of bag before, but never this small, and it was while flicking through the gorgeous Christmas Catalogue for a bit of idea inspiration that I decided to work with the Trim the Tree Paper.

It definitely lends itself to mini projects and with Christmas being that time of year when we’re all giving lots of gifts, sometimes the budget has to come into consideration, so a more pocket friendly priced product inside a beautifully decorated bag is the way to go.

And for those that remember from last year, between my 4 sons, there are over 20 teachers and teaching assistants who we like to give a gift to, so these will have some fun mini goodies in for them, just to say ‘Thanks and Happy Christmas’.

Anyway, I won’t chatter on too much now, I’ll let you sit back and enjoy the quick project and video!
