Easy Custom Gift Bags


LOVE these muslin gift bags from the Holiday catalog!

Maui Stamper Handmade Gift Packaging Too Kind

  • Muslin Gift Bags (Holiday catalog)
  • Too Kind and Yippee Skippee stamp sets
  • Primrose Petals, Old Olive and Raspberry Ripple FFIP
  • Primrose Petals Stitched Ribbon
  • Clothespin (Tag a Bag Accessory kit)
  • Rhinestone jewel

Lazy girl that I am, I cut a piece of ribbon and just clipped it on with the clothespin from the Tag a Bag accessory kit.  That little rhinestone is a leftover from…something.  A kit, the name of which I cannot remember or find.  But you could take a plain rhinestone jewel and color it with a Sharpie® marker and get the same result.

  1. I opened the package of bags and took them out.
  2. I stamped them.

THAT’S IT.  I did NOT wash, fold, dry, iron or otherwise pay any attention to these bags.  I used Stampin’ Up! Classic Ink.  It dried to the touch but I noticed that as I stuffed the bags the ink would transfer to my hands, so I recommend allowing them to dry overnight before gifting them – there was no ink transfer the next day for me.  I stamped 4 different times – the 2-step flower image in Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple, the stem in Old Olive, and the sentiment in Raspberry Ripple – and didn’t have any problems with smearing.

Maui Stamper Handmade Gift Packaging Too KindI made a bunch of these for my Hostess Club members.  They’re filled with a cute stamp and some Trader Joe’s Chocolate Covered Sea Salt Butterscotch Caramels (I think I’m happy that TJ’s isn’t in Hawaii because these would become an ISSUE for me).  These bags are a perfect last-minute-gift solution!  I’ve got a stash on hand and I think you should too 🙂
