Bows and Tags...Tissue Paper and Bags


Happy New Year!!!!!

I found a tutorial on SCS to make paper bows out of double-sided designer paper. They are easy and fun to make. I made some before Christmas and sent them off in a package for a secret santa swap.

As I was thinking of a homemade gift to make for my BFF (because she likes homemade just like I do) I decided to make her a bag of bows. After creating the bows, I decided to use my SU tag punches and make her some matching tags. Once I had the bows and tags done, I thought...hmmm...wouldn't it be cute to give her bags and tissue paper that match the bow and tags. So, I made a trip to Joann's and bought some small white gift bags and some colored gift bags that matched the bows I had made. I also picked up a big package of multi-colored tissue paper.

So I matched up the bows with the bags and tissue paper and gave her these cute gift bag sets. Now she has everything at the tip of her fingers to wrap up that gift she has without looking around for an extra gift bag and some tissue paper, or gift wrap.
