Gift wrapping for 2012

Hello Fellow Bloggers

I have not had a lot of time over the last couple of days but I love playing with my new Papermania Portobello Road papers so much that I thought I would try something completely different - making gift bags!  I got a pack of plain brown paper bags and set about decorating them.  I have only done two so far but I am going to do lots more and use them this year (with the Queen's Jubilee and the Olympics as my excuse) to put birhday gifts in.  On the one at front I have put paper and ribbon strips down the side and on the one at the back I have pleated the paper down the sides.  A bit of red, white and blue tissue paper to wrap the presents in and it's all done and dusted.

I may not use the British flag on all of them but I really like the way these have turned out.

If you do look at my blog, I hope you will leave me a comment.  Thanks for looking.

Regards, Anne x


  1. These bags are so nice...The red and blue tissue will look gereat with them.
    We always bring presents when we go to England to visit our families...maybe I should try something like this to bring my gifts over in!

  2. What a great idea especially with the Olympics and the Jubilee all happening this year. They have a vinteage look about them too. :D

  3. Gorgeous gift bags

  4. Your bags are stunning Anne. What a lovely Idea. Have a lovely week-end. Hugs Rita xxx

  5. Fabulous idea, love them! Hugs May x x x

  6. A very clever idea Anne - they look brilliant

  7. Hi Anne. What a superb idea I am sure that the recipients of your gift bags will love them they are so nice and original. I have not even thought about the Jubilee and Olympics, which is awful of me.

    Happy Crafting. Annie x

  8. These are lovely - and I'm sure anyone would be delighted to receive! x

  9. I love you bags, went to buy this paper but they out of stock. Did you buy 6x6 or 12x12?

    1. Hi Carol, I tried to respond to your query but it came back. I bought both sizes and used the larger size on the bags. Have you tried the Papermania website? Regards, Anne
