Hello!  In my last post, I shared with you a tutorial on how to create festive lip balm gift tags.  For today’s post, I will take you step-by-step on how to create one of these Santa gift bags using the Taylored Expressions’ Sack It To You die set.  The set also comes with a bonus Santa die.

    These Santa gift bags are quite easy and super duper fun to make with young children during this holiday season.  My three small kiddos gave me a hand with them, adhering and decorating these seven gift bags to hold Christmas gifts (the lip balm gift tag included) for their teachers.

    Make 1 Bag




    1.  With the Sack It To You die set, cut out 2 sides for the sack, a belt, belt buckle, and 2 buttons.
    2.  Adhere the two sides together to create the sack.
    3. Adhere the belt and buckle to the sack with double-sided adhesive tape and buttons with glue dots.  (TIP:  you can also use glue.  But if crafting with small children, I’d recommend using adhesive tape and glue dots for a clean and mess-free result).

    4.  With the hole puncher, punch out a hole to each side of the sack (about 1-inch from the top) and on each side of the handle.
    5.  To prevent the handle from shifting, adhere it in place to the inside of the sack with double-sided adhesive tape first.  Then secure with eyelets.

    The finished product.

    Thank you for stopping by.  May you have a lovely blessed day.
