Make custom Christmas gift bags in just an hour!

It's almost Christmas, so here are some quick and easy Christmas gift bags to make, which will hold all of those last-minute gifts.

I found mini white fabric gift bags that fit a gift card, the perfect present for that special teacher, thoughtful neighbor or favorite co-worker. You can also use this idea in different colors and themes for birthdays or other holidays.

All four of these little gift bags can be whipped up in under an hour (not including drying time), so gather your supplies and let's get started!

1.  Cover a piece of cardboard with an old towel, then line up some plain canvas bags from the craft store on top of the towel. Choose a variety of ink mist colors to coordinate with the embroidered letters and designs. Spray both sides of each bag and the handles, then set aside to dry overnight.  I love how vibrant the colors came out with a tie-dye effect!

2.  Select some fabric or felt holiday die-cuts plus Joy embroidered letters to spell a word for each bag. Joy letters are available in a wide variety of colors and styles, so you can mix and match to create the perfect look! Pick some trims to embellish the bags.

3.  Position the letters on the bags and iron them on according to package directions. I always use a craft iron with no steam holes for a better adhesion.

4.  Glue the die-cuts and extra trim to the bags with fabric glue. Let them dry, then fill with goodies and they're ready to give, give, give!

You can find Joy embroidered letters in a variety of colors and fonts at your local craft store.
