Cute Gift Bags

Christmas is an interesting time of year for me at work.  I work with a bunch of amazing people and I am always welcomed graciously and with much love. The problem is, I work at 2 schools and I have a main regional office.  All things considered, I have 11 secretaries, 4 administrators, 2 counselors, and a program specialist that I work with on a daily basis. We do a monetary collection for school administration and the 3 secretaries at the regional office, one of which works directly with me and my schools.  So that leaves 8 more secretaries, and other staff.  In the past, I have baked a platter of cookies and left it in the office of the school with a note, given Christmas cards with candies, given cookies in individual baggies, and given each a Christmas ornament.  Usually it's just a small token to let them know that I am thinking about them.  Unfortunately, it can't be more than that.  So this year, I am giving them each a bag with some candies, an ornament, and a notepad.  Simple.

I was totally inspired by these Gift Tags at Jones Design Company that I wrote about a few weeks back.  The best part is that they are FREE to download.  I used a simple white lunch bag found at Target, folded it over, punched a hole, and put the ribbon, ornament, and tag through the hole.  They look so cute.

Have you been inspired to do beautiful wrapping?

You are quite the gift giver, how thoughtful!
I am terrible at wrapping and prefer to put stuff in a bag and stuff some paper in on top of it. I think your gift bags turned out very nicely.
