oh felt

I know all of you are probably getting sick of me, but i promise this is the last one for a little while.

I've been getting a lot of free reusable tote bags for some reason, so instead of letting them sit around (because there's only so many bags you need for groceries, supplies, etc.) I decided to change them a bit and use them as gift bags for christmas. I used a couple of red bags, made little holiday scenes with about $1 worth of felt and hot glue, and zig-zag stitched them on top of the printed words. They came out a lot better than I thought they would. Is it rude to ask for the bags back?

If you don't have any tote bags on hand, you can get them for $1 at Hobby Lobby or Michaels and it's so much more personal, reusable, and about the same price as buying those glossy, already printed gift bags. You can also use them for birthdays, baby showers, or any occasion!

And yes I know, there is no santa because he seemed too hard and there are no reins because they cluttered up the scene. Does that make it look off?


  1. Wow, what a great idea. This seems like a much cheaper and more personal approach than a store-bought gift bag. Nice work.

    And, no, I don't think the sleigh/reindeer scene looks off at all. You did a nice job.

  2. you are so cool Krea! You just keep on coming up with great ideas!! Love it!
