All of those pretty Christmas gift bags are great, but not everyone likes cute and pretty so I thought I would show you an alternative for those friends who like things a bit different.
This is a really quick and easy way to get your gift bag personalised it has taken me about 10 minutes to do this one.
I started off with a plain bag from Different color art & stamps, they are a company based in the Netherlands, I picked up these bags at the international craft and hobby fair at the NEC last November.
I started off by rubbing walnut stain distress ink over the edges of the bag, then gave it a spray with some perfect pearls mist in blue patina, green patina and mint. After a blast with the heat gun it was dray and ready for stamping.
I used some rubber stamped from smeared inks very skelly Christmas set and coloured the image with promarkers, the snowflakes are from the same set and were stamped randomly with weathered wood distress ink.
To finish off the bag I used a bit of red twine to tie it up.
