These are easy to make and they are just soo cute! I started with kraft gift bags from Stampin’Up! They are about 6 1/2″ x 4 3/4″.
The first step is running them through the Big Shot with the Cable Knit texture folder.

Next use versa mark ink to stamp snowflakes to prepare for heat embossing. These snowflakes came from a stamp in the Christmas Pines Stamp set. They are perfectly snowy. 🙂

After stamping I sprinkled white embossing powder on them. Now they are ready for the heat gun and the magic happens. Those snowflakes just make me smile. 🙂

Then I cut strips of Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper. This paper is perfect because if has lots of prints that remind me of sweaters all warm and fuzzy ready to face the snow. I cut the strips into 4 3/4 ” x 1 1/2″ pieces.

I used snail to adhere them to the bags.

Then I added some bakers twine. The easiest way for me to add bakers twine with a bow is to do the wrap of baker’s twine separately from the bow. I use glue dots to adhere it all to the bag.

These cute little Christmas trinkets are the perfect embellishment to go on with the bow!
