Quick & Easy Christmas Gift Bags {using my Silhouette Cameo}

Yep, the holidays are fast approaching… can you believe it?! Seems like only yesterday it was 110 degrees outside and I was wishing for snow.

Well now that I’m getting prepped for the Christmas season, gifts are on my mind! I thought I would break out my Silhouette Cameo to spruce up some plain gift bags I had leftover from last year. Come take a look!

First thing I did was pick out the design I wanted from my Silhouette store. 99¢ per design, pretty cheap! I already had the scallop in my Silhouette library so all I needed was the JOY text. I set it up in my software and sent it to cut.

This machine truly is magical by the way. As it was cutting I kept thinking to myself… why don’t I use this more often? Umm… it’s pretty amazing. Look at the shapes and text it whipped out in about 2 minutes!

Once everything was cut out, the only thing I needed to do was glue them onto my plain gift bags. I added a little bit of ribbon and they’re ready for some presents!

Supplies I used to make 13 GIFT BAGS:

  • Paper gift bags (you can get a set of 13 from Michaels for $3 if you use a 40% off coupon)
  • (3) sheets of green scrapbook paper
  • (3) sheets of red scrapbook paper
  • Red, green and silver metallic curling ribbon (purchased the entire set from the Dollar Tree)
So if you’re doing the math, that’s about $6 for 13 handmade holiday gift bags!

Pretty cute, right? Let’s hope my family likes them!

So, do you wish YOU had a Silhouette Cameo?
Well, you might just be in luck!
