Quick Christmas Packaging – by Sheri Holt

Today Sheri has created some gift bags for us with matching tags. This project is a super quick make which I think we can all appreciate at this time of year. Take a look:

Bag1WM 462x600

The Simple Stories paper pads are 6 x 8″ in size. One side of each paper is a standard sized print, while the flip side is a super-sized print. These are wonderful designs, allowing you to frame them, use on larger scrapbook layouts or, as Sheri has done today, adhere them to a brown handled gift bag to quickly create a wonderful gift presentation.

There are 2 different Christmas pads from Simple Stories this year, each with wonderful papers:

Merry & Bright – the paper pad Sheri used today

Simple Vintage Christmas – another beautiful option

Last year Sheri framed some of these Simple Stories prints – you might want to take a peek!

This post gives more details on the cute little tags Sheri made.

Sheri simply matted the large 6 x 8″ print with coordinating cardstock and adhered to the bag.

Gifting in brown paper bags and wrapping in brown postal wrap is always my preferred choice!

Sheri used our Farmhouse Christmas stamp set for the quick and easy tags – darling!
