Hello! It’s Ellen here with a quick tutorial on how to upcycle small gift bags into something fabulous.

Upcycled Birthday Gift Bags


If you want to have a small gift bag for little jewelry or you just want to give money in a fancy way; then this is perfect for you! The Gina K. Designs Glitz Glitter Gel along with the newest StampsnStencils products give the perfect wow effect! Let me show you how easy it is to upcycle the bags:

Birthday Gift Bags


1. Stick your stencil on your bag. Make sure you stretch the bag as good as possible, so it sticks tight against the stencil. The Purple Tape is super handy to do this.
2. Apply the desired Glitz Glitter Gel. The Deco Foil Stencil Pal is very useful to apply the gel evenly and reduce residue on your stencils.
3. Then it’s time to pass on your message. I created a tag to do that. The sentiment is embossed and a suitable illustration was placed on the tag with white Foam Squares.

I’m sure my friends will love these gift bags for their little birthday presents and they even can reuse them for someone else!


I hope this upcycled project inspires you. I really think these bags are gorgeous. Thank you so much for stopping by!
