Wedding Gift Bags

Hello We R fans, and welcome to Wedding Week! With the beautiful warm weather here we know some of you are planning weddings this summer, or will be attending them. This week is all about wedding ideas, from gift wrap, to decor, to favor ideas and more. Get ready to pin some fun ideas to your wedding Pinterest board!

Hi! It’s Aly here today to share a decorative gift bag idea with you. These sweet little bags would work perfectly for smaller gifts, gift cards with treats, or favor bags for wedding guests. I used my Gift Bag Punch Board to make these, and then took them to the next level by punching the edges with my 2 Edge Punch.

Once I completed my gift bags, I added a ribbon closure, and some beautiful layered tags and ephemera pieces from the Wildflower collection. I love how the gold foil accents add some elegance to them.
