Hey there and welcome to Day Two of our Blogger Christmas Series. Did you enjoy yesterdays recipe posts? I know that we sure did and look forward to making (and eating) each and everyone of them 🙂
Today is all about gift wrap! Each Christmas I try to make some pretty and creative gift wrap for my gifts.

Then, this year I thought , wait a minute – I can decorate kraft paper gift bags! This year I am crushing on the whole Woodland theme but I really adore the Woodland Fox.
So…I gathered all of my materials which, believe it or not I already have in my craft room – which right now looks more like a junk room 🙂 I wasn’t sure if my plaid fabric idea would work so I had plaid paper at the ready.
I used cleaned thrift store plaid shirts in green and red for my patterns.
I used my trusty Heat and Bond again. Remember a few weeks ago I made the Reindeer Tote Bag found here? I used the same method for my gift bags. After I ironed the paper onto the wrong side of the fabric, I drew patterns onto the backside of the Heat and Bond paper…
Here are all of the patterns I created…
