Penguin Gift Bag

If you are a teacher,  you are probably thinking of a little something to give to your students for Christmas. Some teachers like to give candy, some prefer to give little toys, or books, bookmarks (see my animal print bookmarks idea)... Whatever your choice is, you will need wrapping. You can buy those plastic favor bags from a store or you can give something more personal. That's why I'm posting a bag that I made for my students as an idea for you.

I used both the bow tie and the snowflake here in order not to post too many pictures, but you will use either one or the other.

 Supplies used
Paper: Small red bag - I bought them in bulk- black, white, orange and red cardstock
Tools: Cutting/embossing machine, top note die, triangle, oval and circle punches
Embellishments: bow tie (for boys), snowflake (for girls), clear gemstone.

You can add a personalized gift tag (see my Christmas gift tags) for each bag, and switch the eyes for big wiggly eyes. 
Thank you for visiting my blog, and may the Lord of the Lords give you a wonderful week.
