Fastest Christmas Gift Bag EVER!

Easiest gift bag ever!

I quickly looked through my Picture My Life (aka Project Life) cards and used four of them for the bag front. Three were placed in a triangular design and one used as the tag itself.

Easy Peasy! So, if you need a bag quickly, don't forget this technique. Actually, technique sounds a little fancy for what this is...LOL!
In December, when you spend $50+, you can pick up any sized "C" or "D" sized stamp set from the Annual Inspirations large catalog for just $10. 

SHOP Close to My Heart!

I've had a lot of questions about how exactly to get the $10 stamp sets so I made a quick video for you to watch (click HERE if you can't see the video):

December stamp of the month, shown above, for just $5!

  4. Cute idea on making a gift bag this way thanks for sharing this technique. I am all ready for Christmas. shopping all done and all gifts warped 2 weeks ago. Now I just sit back and enjoy the season. No stress. Merry Christmas.


  5. Great idea for some of those cardstock pieces and embellishments that we might not otherwise use. Thanks!

  6. I was SO excited to be ready for Christmas so early - until I realized that Christmas is this Thursday!!! How did THAT happen? Anyway, I am ready and anxious to spend time with our daughter and her family. Merry Christmas to you and a happy and creative New Year!

  7. I still have some presents to wrap and things to straighten around, but for the most part, I am ready!

  8. I thought I was all finished shopping, but needed 2 gift cards at the last minute. I picked them up tonight after work--mow I just need to get them wrapped. Then I will be finished!!!!! TGJGJGJG@AOL.COM

  9. I thought I was finish shopping, however, just lost another Aunt and I invited the kids to xmas so I am picking up a few more gifts so they'll have something. then I have to get a couple of gift cards.

  10. Finished and can not wait until 2015. Everyone have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  11. Joy, your bag turned out great -- the bow is the perfect finishing touch! No, I'm not quite ready for Christmas as I still have some last minute gift buying and decorating to do.
    Thanks for the chance to win that fun stamp set!
    Have a Very Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year!

  12. Cute idea for the gift bag, thanks for sharing. Yes, I'm ready! Merry Christmas to all!!!

  13. Ready as far as Christmas gifts done just need to bake some stuff and cleaning to do.

  14. Ready for Christmas except for wrapping my mom's gifts. The Postal annex that I went to on Sunday only had Batman stamps, so I though that was pretty festive ! I don't have the stamp you are giving away, so I would love to have it. I have a ton of embossing folders, so I keep the in a mini metal shopping bag. they fit perfectly. I can't wait for Christmas to get here, it will be a time to slow down and reflect. Blessings to you all. Merry Christmas !

  15. Love this stamp- would be a great addition to my"Young" CTMH collection- thinking of good friends and my fashionista daughters!

  16. I am 98% done and will be by the end of the day. Just a few gifts to finish up. Love your bag, love how you used Project Life type products to complete the bag, would never have thought to do that, great idea! Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and may 2015 bring you peace.

  17. I have to still make the bows (with my digital cricut cart) and then I'm done. Great idea. I wish I'd done that instead of the complicated wrapping I chose to do XD

  18. I am all done! I actually have been done for a couple of weeks for once!

  19. No not done. I'm about a week behind thanks to my emergency visit to the hospital. Thank goodness my kids are all grown and understand. I didn't even get a tree up this year.

  20. Christmas was good but we cut back this year.

  21. We had a very merry Christmas. Hope you did as well. :)

  22. We had a very merry Christmas. Hope you did as well. :)

  23. Joy, thank you for the coupons every week! Finally ordered the roll tote and organizers for the inside! Very nicely made and look forward to filling it so to have ready when I go to crops and retreats! It will hold a lot and is made for that!!! So glad my husband got it for me. I have had many roll totes, but this is the nicest!
    well,mi hope you and your family had a wonderfully blessed Christmas and will have an awesome New Year coming up!

They haven’t spoken this week as their teams prepare to face off. “This will be a fun, adidas australia sale competitive game,” Williams said. “I know Nash and a couple of other guys as well.” UNT will head into tonight’s game with a load of confidence after its solid outing against Arkansas. “That was a very big confidence booster against Arkansas,” adidas factory outlet australia Williams said. “We came out and played them hard the whole game. We had a couple of slip-ups. If we get those things under control, we will be all right.” UNT expects to receive a ruling from the NCAA this week on the eligibility status cheap adidas originals shoes of Texas A&M transfer J-Mychal Reese.
