Velvet gift bags make an elegant gift wrap.
They can make a nice way for kids to wrap a special gift for Mom or Grandma.
And you don’t have to make them just for Christmas. There are lots of nice colors that could be used for any time of the year.
Kids can decorate the velvet bags themselves. All they need is some sticky back felt in which to cut their own designs, or felt or foam stickers.
Letter stickers are nice because kids can use them to put the recipient’s name or initials on the bag.
Or they can add a word such as LOVE, NOEL, JOY, SNOW or whatever appeals to them.
A snowman or snowflake with the word SNOW is a fun idea. Or a Santa sticker with HO HO HO next to it.
This is a great classroom project for kids who have made a gift for their Mom and need a way to wrap it.
They can have fun designing a special bag to put Mom’s gift in.
What you need
Piece of Sticky Back Felt, or Felt/Foam Stickers

They also come in a nice array colors, and only a few colors are shown here.
Some kids would rather make their own designs, and for them a piece of sticky back felt is perfect.
Other kids want to do a quick project with a minimum of fuss and effort, and for them the stickers are perfect. Or they can use a combination of the two.
Because no glue is used, the bags are ready to be used as soon as the kids are done decorating them.
And the kids will love presenting their gift in a beautiful velvet gift bag to Mom or Grandma!
