I used the We R Memory keepers gift bag punch board for this. I do believe that I can make enough bags over the years to justify the cost, but I wish it was a bit easier to use. I had to make 4 or 5 bags before I felt comfortable using it. It creates the perfect size for pretty earrings or a necklace, or a cute bracelet, or fun socks, or inkpads, or....I'd love to tell you what's in the bag, but it's a gift for my daughter. Shhhhh....don't tell!
Wee little bag

Do you know what I love about the holidays? It is socially acceptable to use as much sparkle and shine as humanly possible. Do you know what I dislike? Paying outrageous amounts of money for cute gift wrap when I have a ton of fabulous paper in my craft room. There's a fun sketch at the Unscripted Sketches blog this week and that's what I used as a starting point for my Wee Work gift bag. I was inspired by my talented stamping friend, Kimberly. She does something that I have a hard time with. She incorporates the sentiment in to the design. That sounds easy, but it's often not. I tend to add my sentiment as an after-thought and the design suffers, so I tried to keep the sentiment a prominent element here.
