Teacher Gift Bags

Hi everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217 Creations. At my oldest son's school, the teachers have wish lists for classroom supplies.  I grabbed a few tags for each teacher. I decided to go with a good rule of thumb K*I*S*S- "Keep It Simple Silly".  My natural inclination is to do a detailed project but this is not always possible.
I realized I needed a bag of some kind to put the items in. I found these unfinished bags at Joann's.  They came in a 6 pack for $4.99.  I then used a 40% off which made this a very affordable gift wrap option. Plus I could make these bags very quick (added bonus!).  I started by cutting a 12 by 12 sheet to 9 by 12 inches. This left a nice border on the edges.
I then cut my images from Gingerbread.  I bought this cartridge last year in a bundle.  I had not used it and I have to say this is an easy cartridge to cut and layer.  I am going to do some cuts for the boys to play with next week during winter vacation. Here is my sizing (real size off):
Candy 4 inches
Gingerbread Girls 6.0 inches
Holly 5 inches
Next I cut these tags from Art Philosophy at  2.0 inches.  I stamped this sentiment from Pink By Design "Gratitude" set.  I added some twine to the top of the tags to tie to the bags.
Finally I assembled the bags.
Here are my other designs.  I made a total of 5 in about an hour. 

  I hope you like this super simple project. As always thank you for taking the time to follow or subscribe to us at She's A Sassy Lady and on my personal blog at 217 Creations.
