Gingerbreadman Gift Bag

Have you got all your Christmas gifts wrapped up and ready to go? Yeah, me neither. LOL I created this quick and cute little gift bag to inspire you for those harried times. Keep a stash of these great little Square Bags #01 on hand for when you need something fast. Kraft goes with any occasion, so go ahead and order 10 or 20 in a kraft color for your stash.

I stamped the gingerbread man with a brown ink onto some scrap kraft cardstock and cut him out. I accented him here and there with a white gel pen to mimic the frosting he would have on his arms, legs, and face. After cutting out the square backgrounds, adhering the buttons, and tying the ribbon on the top, this bag took less than 10 minutes to make from start to finish.

Go check out what other die cuts are available at Creative Cuts and More. There is a huge variety of bags, boxes, cards and shapes to choose from for all of your crafting needs. Check out the gallery HERE for lots of great ideas to kickstart your creativity.

OMGosh, what an adorable little square box. I never noticed this one before. Or maybe I just didn't see it's potential. Now I do. I have that PTI set and I can so see myself making a dozen of these. So fun!! Love the color combo and the perfectly matched ribbon. Not to mention the buttoned belly!! Too darn cute!!
