DIY: Decorative Gift Bags

When you make Rolo Pretzels, you end up with plenty of Rolo wrappers. 
They looked too festive to waste, so I made them colorful snow balls. 
I had a ton of craft bags that I want to use in lou of wrapping when giving small items like jewelry this year. Decorating one of these bags was a fun way to personalize it.

Yes, my little project looks like it's straight out of a 3rd grade classroom. What you probably didn't consider is that I may be giving this to a 3rd grader, who will no doubt think I'm an art genius like Picasso. Or, perhaps I will give it to my mom, in which case she will still consider me an art genius.

It's all about strategy.
Step by step instructions are after the jump!

  1. haha this is cute! I have to say, my mom would probably compare me to Monet if I gave her something like this.

  2. I don't think it is just a 3rd grader and your mum who would consider this art genius.
    I love those little jewellery paper and soft bags and always wish I could do something else with them instead of just tossing them (which I eventually don't as I have quite a lot of them).

    This is really nice and definitely festive. Art genius I daresay.
