Quick and Easy Personalized Holiday Gift Bags

Beth Watson

December 9, 2017

I absolutely LOVE the holidays, but now that my nieces and nephews are getting older the big stacks of presents have been replaced with gift cards and electronics.  So how do you make those sometimes impersonal gifts extra special?  It's all in the wrapping!

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.

For the striped gift bag I colored Joy® Classic Monograms with a Tombow Dual Brush marker.

On the red stocking I added a Joy® Circle Monogram in white with a craft iron.

For my friend who is deployed overseas, the red and white gingham stocking received a patriotic USA with Joy® Cooper 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.  Letters are applied with an iron according to the directions on the back of the package.

Here are close up shots of each bag. Shiny gold letters for my niece Josie:

Black, white and bold red for my nephew Zach:

Fun plaid with an elegant script monogram for my niece Lindsay:

No nonsense stripes and and fun typewriter style for my niece Kristen, who will soon be a Teacher:

Monograms with lace and the good old red, white and blue for Rhonda as she serves our country in Afghanistan!

Now I'm off to fill these quick and easy personalized holiday gift bags with all kinds of Christmas goodies!   All six went together in just under 30 minutes!

Joy® Iron-on embroidered letters and numbers are available at your favorite craft stores in a variety of sizes, fonts, colors individually, or in sheets. 

White letters can be colored with paint, dyes, markers and more.
