Nordic Style Christmas Gift Bags – Int’l Bloggers Club Challenge

Are you all busy with your Christmas shopping? Or have you done it already? I am just getting started, so I made these cute nordic style Christmas gift bags that are so easy but also perfect for smaller presents. They can be personalized with stamps and a little greenery. So simple but it makes giving a lot more fun I think. And since it is the last Monday of the month it is also Int’l Bloggers Club time! And it so happens that yes, you guessed it, this months theme is gift wrapping. Also, you can find last months post here in case you’ve missed it.

    These are very tasteful and beautifully well done. It amazes me the difference the little twig of greenery does, they go from star to elegant. Love them.

    Oh my goodness, you just gave me the greatest idea! I recently received a large stamp kit and I have numerous leftover bags from doing craft markets. I have a special gift in the works right now and I’m going to be packaging them in hand stamped bags! Thank you for the inspiration, Katrin. I can’t wait to get started. Pinned to share 🙂

    I love brown paper bags and twine, always have! This is a darling idea and so easy for these busy days ahead. That little piece of greenery adds the perfect festive finishing touch. Thank-you!!

    My goodness Katrin those bags are adorable. The stamping is a perfect way to personalize each one and also it looks so much fun. I saw your photo the other day and when I went shopping I was inspired to buy a stamp of my own. First time, so thanks for that. I cannot wait to personalize my paper as well. The idea of paper bags is also very clever so you don’t have to spend time wrapping boxes, and even looking for boxes.

    What a fun idea Katrin and it would be such a great idea for kids to customize their gift wrapping for their friends. And just like all your other posts, something that’s so plain and boring gets turned into something so beautiful and classy. I love those stamps you used and the dash of greenery on top. Stunning
