#1 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Pootles Advent Countdown 2018 #5 Santa’s Workshop Gift Bag Tutorial
I do love to make these Advent Countdown projects each year, not least because I’m the original Christmas Fairy and can’t wait to get my decorations up (I do wait until December 1st, but I’ve already shopped for new ones this year), but I also love to experiment with different types of pretty packaging and how I might use them.
So today’s bag is one for children. Ok, for big kids too, but I was thinking of my boys and that while they love to see piles of wrapped presents under the tree, they’re also partial to the temptation that is an open bag. It’s almost as though they’re toying with themselves to see how long they can hold out before peeking and discovering that the gift inside is hidden from view!
But however you would use it, this Santa’s Workshop bag is a good size (9 x 4.25 x 1.5″ (22.5 x 10.5 x 4cm) when finished) and so easy to make, particularly with that quick die cutting going on!
Have a great Monday everyone and I hope your week is as cheerful as today’s bag is!
