Trimmed Out Gift Bag

I love wrapping gifts. Making a gift look pretty and unique just adds that special touch. One way I like to do this is to have lots of kraft gift bags on hand. It makes it easy to whip  up just the right bag with paper crafting goodies I have on hand instead of running out to the store to find one that works.

Today’s project is a sweet little yellow gift bag that I’ve worked up to hold a gift for a new little someone. I love yellow for babies as it is soft and sweet and works with either gender. I have some very fond memories of my own little ones in lovely soft pale yellow sleepers. When I look back on my life so far, I think that rocking my little ones each night rank right up there with my very favorite moments.

To make this gift bag I’ve used lots of different yellow trims together to create a striped border along the top of the bag.  Continuous Lines Glue Dots® are a great way to adhere strips of trims. I’ve also used Craft Glue Dots® to hold on the buttons.  Here’s a fun tip... tear off a strip of the Glue Dots® roll and center it along your border. Apply the Glue Dots® directly from the backing for perfectly spaced buttons.
