After crafting up a gift-giving storm, some tips for how to package everything in a pretty fashion might be just what the doctor ordered. Angie from The Country Chic Cottage is here today to help us with just that!
Hello all! I am Angie with The Country Chic Cottage. I am thrilled to be here at Amy’s today. She is super sweet and super talented…but y’all already know that right?? I am here today to show you my handmade gift wrap secrets…
I made one with doily placemats and the other with round doilies. Use whatever your dollar tree has. Cut the placemat doilies in half…
Lay it out on your bag and mod podge it on…yes leave it completely untrimmed. Once your mod podge dries you can take a pair of scissors and trim away all the excess. If you want your bag to be pretty from the front and back, be sure to repeat on the back when the front is dry.
Cut out tree shapes from the green ones and candy cane shapes from the red ones. Each tag is half of the paint strips I picked up.
Punch a hole and thread in some ribbon…you are done!! Super simple, cute, and inexpensive…my kinda project!
The Tissue Paper
The fabulousness is that the outer and inner is a different color all in one hit!! Yep super simple. Use the PSA if you can find em or use a Christmas stamp you have. But stamp that tissue paper to make it extra special! It turns that simple white tissue into something meaningful for your recipient.
Let’s put it together….the bags are dry! I trimmed em and added my tags…
I used the candy cane on the red and the tree on the brown…
Can you guess?? I made candy cane tissue paper for the red bag….cause I am matchy matchy like that!
And the Christmas tree paper got added to the brown bag…
Wrap your gifts with these super simple secrets and your friends will feel extra special….
We can keep it just between the two of us how super simple this is….I won’t tell your friends and family! 🙂
Thanks so much Amy for having me! I enjoyed it! Y’all stop by the cottage anytime for a visit!
I absolutely **love** the idea to use paint chips as gift tags! Thanks for the gift-wrapping inspiration, Angie!
