Here’s what you need to create Christmas Gift Bags for the Holidays:
- Joy® Iron-on Embroidered Letters – Gold Metallic, Script Initials, Baby Monogram, Letter Shop, Large Monograms
- Fabric Gift Bags – these Fabric Bags would make a great substitute!
- Craft Iron and Ironing Board or Ironing Pad
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.
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 because it doesn’t have the holes in the bottom, 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 received the patriotic USA with Joy® peel and stick letters in royal blue.
I mixed and matched 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.
