Santas gifts will be all neat and tidy in one bag. No fuss, no muss!!!
I started with paper lawn reuse bags.
Open them up and....
Let the stenciling, stamping,, and/or embossing begin. What ever your little heart desires! I had an expert do mine. Sue Wolfe did an awesome job. She added a surprise from the original design...croodinates for my home so Santa wont get lost. Nice! With the winter weve been having here in Minnesota Santa and Rudolph are going to need all of the help they can get!
Fill the bag with Santas bootie (these are not to be seen by children  til Christmas morning) and fold over the top flap. Poke two holes at  the top with scissors or paper punch. You can grommet these holes if you  want to go the extra mile. These bags can be used year after year.
Starting at the back....
Run your ribbon though holes of bag and pull through front. Now what is this beautiful ribhon?
Why its white tree wrap of course!
Its like butter! makes beautiul bows and its easy to work with! Twofer!
Add a few embellishments to the bow for extra measure.
E has a beautiul gift bag....
With love from Santa!

Save Santa some time this year. Make one bag for each child. That way Santa can simply empty his sack into the bags, tie the bows, and up the chimney he goes.

These bags are also good for those impossile to wrap large gifts.

chippingcharm writes: Great idea Sue! Love that you can re-use them from year to year. I already do that with regular gift bags for my kiddos...but your bag is bigger and cooler...much better suited to my "decor" than Star Wars and Princesses ;) Laurel Posted: 6:49 pm on December 13th
