Hi guys!  It’s Amy from My 3 Monsters again.  I am excited to share my Handlettered Holiday Gift Bags with y’all today.  Christmas will be here before we know it, so I wanted to share my absolute favorite way to package goodies and small gifts during the holiday season.  Brown paper bags are super affordable and you have complete freedom to customize them to your heart’s content!

I handlettered a few of my favorite holiday phrases and digitized them so they can be used in oodles of different ways this holiday season — I’ll be showing you two of my favorite ways to use them here.  I love printing directly onto brown paper bags, right from my home printer.  You get such a one-of-a-kind custom look and no one would ever guess how easy it is to do!

How to print on paper bags:

You will need:

1. Click “Print” and then go to “Printer Properties”.  

2. All printers are a little different, but make sure you flip the design 180 degrees so that it will print in the right spot on your bag and be right side up. For me it is under Page Layout.  Once you have checked the box, click OK.

3. Insert bag into printer as shown below:

I found it helpful to make sure the crease on the bottom of the bag was really sharp so that the printer would pull it in without a problem.

4.  Click Print and watch the magic happen!

Cut the top of the bags into a cute scalloped design and use them as popcorn bags for your holiday movie nights or family get-togethers.   You could also use them to package treats for your neighbors like this Candy Cane popcorn I made last year.  Or, imagine how excited your kiddos would be to get their school lunch in a fun “Get your jingle on” bag in December!  If printing directly on the bags is a little intimidating {or if your printer doesn’t want to cooperate!} here’s another option:

Create these bag toppers by printing the designs onto plain white {or colored} printer paper.  Cut them out and attach to the bags with a stapler, cute washi tape, or ribbon as shown above.  These would be perfect for packaging up cookies for your children’s teachers, treats for your neighbors, or for wrapping small, oddly shaped gifts to put under your tree.  Download the hand-lettered holiday phrases here.
