DIY Christmas Gift Bags – Free Printable Templates

DIY Christmas Gift Bags Craft

Hello, crafty people! I’m super excited to share a new freebie template to everyone. Today we’ll be making another Christmas themed craft. I know it might seem too early in the year to be thinking about Christmas, but in my world, it’s never too early to be thinking about Christmas! Most of my family live on the other side of world, so if I am going to make anything handmade, it needs to be in the post by mid-November.

So for today’s craft project, we are creating some DIY Christmas Gift Bags. There are three designs available for download including Santa, Elf, and Rudolph. These cute gift bags are just the perfect goodie bag for your holiday treats. So let’s start crafting, shall we?
