Sharing is caring!

I absolutely LOVE the holidays, but now that my nieces and nephews are getting older the big stacks of toys and games have been replaced with gift cards and electronics.  How do you make those sometimes impersonal gifts extra special?  Well, it's all in the wrapping with these Personalized Holiday Gift Bags. All made in just 30 minutes!

Here's what you need to create Christmas Gift Bags for the Holidays:


Gather some pretty simple supplies – a variety of Joy® Iron-on Embroidered Letters, mini fabric gift bags and stockings (I found mine at the Target dollar spot) and an Iron with Ironing Board.

Supplies Needed for Holiday Gift Bags #creativelybeth #30minutecrafts #personalizedgiftbags #christmascrafts


For the striped gift bag, color the Joy® Classic Monograms with a Tombow Dual Brush Pen.  Once dry, iron on to the fabric gift bag according to package directions.

On the red stocking, add a Joy® Circle Monogram in white with a craft iron.  I use a craft iron, but a traditional iron would work as well.  Just use a pressing cloth and make sure that the steam setting is off.

For my friend who is deployed overseas, the red and white gingham stocking was perfect with the patriotic USA in Joy® peel and stick letters in royal blue.

Mix and match the rest of the gift bags with my favorite Joy® Iron-on Embroidered Letters and Monograms.  Apply with an iron according to the directions on the back of the package.
