Xyron 30 Days of Holiday Projects

Do you have all of your Christmas shopping done? How about your wrapping?  No?  Well, why not make your own cute gift bags for your gift giving this year?  This is a really fun was to make a special present even more memorable.

You can play around with the sizes of your finished bag, but this one is 6 1/2" tall x 1 1/4" deep (the perfect size for jewelry or some other wonderful little goodie!)

Cut a sheet of cardstock 7 3/4" x 12".  With the long side along the top of your score board, score at  1 1/4",  5 3/4", 7", and 11 1/2".  Turn the paper a quarter turn and score at 1 1/4".  Before assembling the bag, use your Xyron 5" Creative Station to apply adhesive to the patterned papers that you want to use to decorate your bag.

 Use the Xyron Double Sided Tape to assemble the bag.

Ink the raised side of an embossing folder and carefully place white cardstock in the folder  and emboss with your machine. This will create a letter pressed image.  Fussy cut the tree.  Use Xyron Adhesive Dots to add sequins ( 2 sizes stacked) as ornaments.  Add a dot of dimensional paint to the center of the sequins.  

Apply ribbon to the bag using the double sided tape, and adhere the embossed tree over the top.  Use the Xyron/Teresa Collins stapler to add a snippet of ribbon to the top edge.

 Add some tissue, your present, and you are all set!
