Lazy Gift Bags

Whew!!! What a week it's been. I'm completely "burned-out" and I can't wait for the Christmas Break!!!

I've yet to put the finishing touches on my Christmas shopping. I don't have much left to do, but still, I HAVE to get out there and get it done! I'm just not feeling the motivation to go and face the crowds.

I realized yesterday that I had to deliver my "school gifts" today. I haven't even bought gift bags yet, so I whipped out my glue, buttons and rick rack and made these.





Ok, now I can see that I need to trim the rick rack on one of the bags. Good thing I haven't delivered them yet.

I think I'm going to sit down and seriously make a list of all the things I have to do in the next few days. Maybe then I'll feel better.

I love your idea - we've managed to chew through a huge number of old buttons this Christmas thanks to the variety of 'button' ideas on the internet.

Cute bags!

I found myself in a similar postion a few days ago. I managed to whip up 9 bottle shaped gift bags from some thrifted red/white polka dot fabric and green ribbon from my stash. Quick and simple. :)
