Gift Bags {Prima Marketing & Pinterest}

Hi there!
Finally time to share my wooden gift bags that I created for an awesome blog post at Prima Marketing`s Blog - {Pin Spin}. Three girls from Prima Marketing Design Team (including me) were asked to create a project inspired by Pinterest .
And this is what I came with....
My Pin Spin is a photo with gifts. What inspired me was the photo on each gift.
I think it`s so clever instead of writing to whom it belongs just to attach a photo on the present.

I know these are not traditional Christmas colours but this is
how I see Christmas - happy, colourful and cozy!

  • The biggest bag is approx. 6.5" x 7 and the smallest 4.5" x 6".
  • Each wooden bag was painted first with acrylic paint.
  • I decorated with pattern papers, die-cuts and modelling paste.
  • I had fun adding Prima`s flowers :-)
