Stamped Gift Bags

Bags of candy are the perfect gift for friends, neighbors and teachers for Christmas, New Year and guess what is just around the corner - Valentine's Day! 

You will need:
  • Joy® Baby Monogram Iron on Embroidered Letters
  • fabric paint
  • small stamps
  • ink pads
  • pre-made linen gift bags

1. Decorate the bag with stamped flowers using fabric ink and stamps. Flower shapes were randomly stamped across the bottom of each bag for these samples.

2. Use a permanent/waterproof ink to add leaves around the flowers.  Fabric paint normally has to be air dried for a certain period of time then heat set, so be sure to check the label of your bottle for directions.

3.  Joy letters are dyeable. Use a matching ink and rub the ink pad over the letters to color them. I then heat set them to make sure the ink doesn't smear.

4. Stuff the finished bags with a variety of chocolate bars - who on your list doesn't need need a little chocolate thank you??

You can find Joy® embroidered, iron-on letter sheets at your favorite craft stores.
