Repurposed Christmas Gift Bags

 I love to repurpose shopping and gift bags,
but sometimes they have a store name
or damage from bows or tape.
So I decided to use some scraps of wrapping 
paper that I saved and some double sided tape
and work some magic.
 Here I trimmed the edges with a decorative scissors
and cut strips to go along the side of the bag.
 And a wider piece for the front and back.
 I added some ric rac.
 And a Christmas tree cutout from a Christmas card
and ta da!
 Another great use for scraps of wrapping paper
is to layer it over coordinating solid color paper
when wrapping a gift.
Bye for now!
