Fearless Friday, Holiday Wraps, Bags & Tags!

With inflation impacting our budgets these days,

you can save a lot of money making your own gift wrap supplies

Let me show you some easy designs anyone can do

and how you can make your own holiday wraps, bags, and tags!

These cute bags are basically just lines, colors and shapes!

Look for plain handled bags

at the Dollar Store, Target, Hobby Lobby or Michael’s

You can create a stack of these gift bags with a handful of markers

See the step by step tutorial here

Instead of a boring box, tuck your gift into a painted jar!

Perfect for a pair of cute socks, gloves, hand lotion, candy

or homemade goodies like Peppermint Snowballs

Tie the jars with a pretty ribbon

and make festive card stock tags using PicMonkey

See the complete tutorial and recipe here

You can add a simple design too,

a candy cane or a Christmas tree!

See the Christmas Tree tutorial here

Buckets or pails are great for gifting too

The buckets below hold a seasoning mix wrapped in a dishtowel

A tag with a recipe idea is tied on the handle~

This is a great gift for a host or hostess, or a party favor

See the details here

I found these red and black buckets already painted

But you can always get plain buckets at the craft or hardware store

and paint them yourself~

You can personalize them with a name or simple pattern

So cute for a big fluffy stuffed animal

Using a jar or a bucket is like giving 2 gifts in 1!

They can enjoy what’s inside

and reuse the jar or bucket for something else

Making your own tags is a real money saver too~

You can create these sweet angel tags

with just a few strokes of a paint brush!

See the tutorial here

How about a jolly Santa?

Paint him on a bag,

you can even use brown lunch bags

that you can get at the grocery store

Paint him on a vase and fill it with candy canes!

See the tutorial here

It will look so cute you won’t even need to wrap it up!

Rudolf is fun to paint too~

Just a few basic shapes…

A circle, an oval, a couple of swishes, lines and dots!

See the tutorial here

Paint or draw him on card stock and cut it out for a tag

or upload a photo of your art to PicMonkey

and design a tag to print one or multiples

Gnomes are still popping up everywhere

They are simple to paint too,

just a wonky triangle hat,

some brush strokes for the beard

and a round dot for the nose

I painted wine glasses and a vase,

but they too would be cute on gift tags and bags!

See the tutorial here

I hope I’ve inspired you to make some wraps, bags and tags!
