Stenciled Christmas Gift Bags

Small brown paper bags can look so festive when pepped up with stencils and paint. Window stencils (the kind for using with spray snow) with smaller motifs work also well for this project.

For this project you will need:

- brown paper bags
- Christmas stencils of choice with motifs that will fit onto the bags
- red paint
- stiff round paint brush
- paper towel
- hole puncher
- masking tape
- red ribbon of choice
- Christmas greenery to embellish the bags if desired


Stencilled Christmas Gift Bags Tutorial 1
1. Use the tape to hold the stencil down over the paper bag. The advantage of the tape is that it does not stick permanently and peels away again easily.

2. Collect some paint onto the brush and then wipe most of the excess paint off onto a paper towel so that the paint is not so wet on the brush. Pounce the brush then over the stencil from the top to fill in the cut out areas with color. Repeat until the entire cut out areas are filled.

3. Fold the bag over at the top about 1.5-2 centimeters. Punch two holes centered at the top of the bag, pull ribbon through and tie a bow. Finish off with greenery if desired.
