Graphic 45 Christmas Gift Bag Tutorial

featuring Joy to the World Collection

By Sandi Nagel


“Hello fellow paper crafters! Today I’m sharing a Graphic 45 Christmas Gift Bag tutorial featuring the Joy to the World paper collection.

This gift bag is so easy and quick to make that by the time you get ready to go to the store, pick your gift bags, stand in line, and drive back home, you would have made several of these!



Making these gift bags using your Graphic 45 papers and embellishments is a lot of fun. This project goes by so quickly that you won’t want to stop at making just one. You’ll want to make several to have on hand for all of your special occasions. You can make these for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Birthdays; and you may even want to make several to house some of your crafting supplies!


Video Tutorial

I’ve put together a quick and easy to follow video tutorial of my project. In it I show you where to score and fold and where to make your cuts. I hope that you enjoy the tutorial and Happy Paper Crafting!” ~ Sandi
