Snowflake Gift Bags

12 Days of Christmas Crafts - Day 9

I decided to make a few gift bags this year.  I went with non-traditional Christmas colors and I think they turned out cute!

Canvas bags
puffy fabric paint
paint brush
vanishing marker

I started by putting a small dot with my vanishing marker for the center of the snow flake.  Then I just drew staight lines around it.  The first snowflake bag I made (the pink one), I used a piece of paper for the center dot, to  make the snowflake off center of the bag.

Once I had the snowflake sketched on the bag, I put a line of puffy paint and then painted it flat with my paint brush. Don't forget to put a some newspaper or wax paper inside the bag to avoid it from bleeding through.

I wasn't too concerned with the thickness of the lines, I wanted it to look a little worn.

 Here are the finished bags....
