Paper Packages Tied up in String

This year I took the easy route and bought (gasp) teacher gifts instead of making them. I know, its the thought that counts. I just feel like I am cheating.

But, Miss M and I spent part of the day making the wrapping for the gifts.

One of my favorite ways to wrap small gifts is to decorate plain gift bags. I usually have a bunch on hand. The dollar store sells plain bags 2 for $1. And then you can decorate them for whatever you want. I use them for party favor bags, birthday gift bags and teacher gift bags.

And since I just finished quilting my cousin’s holly tree skirt, I had holly on the brain. I cut out the holly and background paper with my Cricut and Christmas papers leftover from previous projects.

I added some colored tissue paper and some red or green bakers twine and viola! Adorable packaging tied up with string! That’s anyone’s favorite thing! (Sorry I couldn’t help myself.)
