Lunch Bag/Christmas Gift Bag Project

Today I'm showing off a really cute little gift bag idea. I love to fill these bags with gifts from the kitchen. A small loaf of bread, a bunch of cookies, a jar of jam/jelly...the possibilities are endless! I started with a plain lunch bag...


...I folded over the top of the bag and used a regular hole punch to punch holes through all the layers to weave the ribbon in and out.  I attached this adorable paper pieced reindeer from Paper Piecings By Nikki
to a scrap of paper and then glued it all to the front of the bag.  I added some colorful tissue paper and there it is - the perfect gift bag!!!  Inexpensive too.

If you missed my post yesterday - here is the Paper Piecing file I used - Nikki is adding more and more to her shop every day - so be sure to keep checking back with her to see her new designs.
