I love the holidays, and Christmas is by far my favorite….so it just makes sense that I try to get ahead of the game by doing some of my crafting and decor during the summer. That way I can enjoy the holiday time more with my family! That’s the goal, anyway 🙂 I love how ridiculously simple this Santa Bag craft is, and it uses supplies that most people have on-hand! Score!

Directions

  1. Since most brown paper bags are really tall, cut off a bit on the top to shorten it to your desired height. Fold over your top flap…roughly 1-2 inches. Cut a piece of red cardstock to fit the entire flat back of the paper bag. Attach it with tape or glue. Super Easy Santa Bag / by Busy Mom's Helper #ChristmasinJuly #GiftBag #Santa #Christmas Super Easy Santa Bag / by Busy Mom's Helper #ChristmasinJuly #GiftBag #Santa #Christmas
  2. Cut a piece of red cardstock to fit on the front flat side of the bag, up to the crease beneath the flap. Attach with tape or glue.

Attach with tape or glue. Super Easy Santa Bag / by Busy Mom's Helper #ChristmasinJuly #GiftBag #Santa #Christmas Add some black circle buttons down the front, including one on the flap.
  3. I used some velcro dots (cut in half…didn’t need a large circle) for keeping the flap folded over.

  4. Tape your sparkly ribbon across the very top flap, folding it over the sides to attach it. Super Easy Santa Bag / by Busy Mom's Helper #ChristmasinJuly #GiftBag #Santa #Christmas Attach your ribbon of choice for the handle…..and you’re done!

See, is that ‘super easy’ or what?! Especially with the holiday craziness, quick and simple (and budget-friendly) crafts are definitely ideal!
