Gift Bags with the Imagine Collection

Hello! One of my favorite things to do with scrapbook paper is to create fun gift packaging with it. I love having a stash of little gift bags that I can use whenever the need arises. Since most of my shopping and packaging is last minute, having a few of these pre-made is fantastic for any event. Since I have two daughters, who have little friends with birthdays, the Imagine Collection will be perfect for them to use for any little gifts they may have.
For starters, I followed this little tutorial from Lia Griffith. It's really similar to creating gift bags from gift wrap, but on a much smaller scale. Each bag uses an entire sheet of 12x12 paper. The size differences simply come from how much was folded down and how wide the base is.
I added a little flair to each bag by using a couple of punches that I had, and added a few tags to each bag. This is great for me, as I can simply sign the tag instead of worrying about an additional card. For the green bag, I used Imagine Three, and the pink uses Imagine Five.
I chose to punch holes on either side of the bag, then tied some matching ribbon through each of the holes.
I love using the double sided papers for this, as once the punched edge is folded over, you get another pattern!
The best part about these, if you fold the edges in, they can fold flat for storage, and are ready to fill when you need them!
 Thank you for spending some time checking out today's gift packaging! I hope that you were inspired to create your own.
