Looking for fun and creative ways to spruce up your wrapping?  These DIY Santa Sacks are sure to help you with that.
We had a fun Facebook Live earlier this week where I showed 5 different ways to create reusable bags you can use for gifting.  You can watch the whole Facebook live below:

To create each of these projects we used our EasyPress 2, EasyPress Mat, Iron-on Protective Sheet, a variety of Iron-on, and a collection of cloth bags we purchased off of Amazon.

For this Christmas Express sack we used a green nylon laundry bag and our red and white Everyday Iron-on.  The 10x12 EasyPress 2 and large EasyPress mat make this project a breeze.  Use the Iron-on Protective Sheet to protect any exposed Iron-on when layering the pieces.

This Santa Sack was the simplest of all the projects.  We used our 12x24 mat to create the belt out of black Everyday Iron-on and then used silver Glitter Iron-on to create the buckle.  So simple, SO cute! Santa Belt cut file.

This bag just might be my favorite.  For this bag, we used brown, red, green, and black Everyday Iron-on.  You may be looking at this photo wondering why the image isn’t centered on the bag.  When I created my first bag I did center it on the sack and when I gathered the top to tie it closed you couldn’t see anything at the top of the bag so we lowered it for the rest of the projects and it turned out perfectly.

While any of these projects can be used for an individual or family we really love the idea of this one to put family gifts in. Can you just imagine the excitement seeing the bag and wondering what might be inside for you? Rudolph Express cut file.

The bags above are all large, like laundry bag size.  This cute bag is perfect for the small gift or a couple of small gifts.  We love that these bags can be used over and over again. You can personalize the bag either with Iron-on or by adding a cute tag so it can be used for anyone each year.  No Peeking until Christmas cut file.

This bag just may save Christmas.  I told the story in the Facebook Live about the time our whole family gathered together for Christmas and as the families arrived we put our gifts under the tree.  Christmas Eve rolled around and we all realized the Christmas Eve pajamas were under the tree with all the other gifts. It was chaos for a bit finding all the gifts but funny now to look back on.

If we had had these cute bags there would have been no question which gifts were for Christmas Eve and they are so cute under the tree. For this project we used red and green Everyday Iron-on, green Foil Iron-on and this cut file.

I hope these bags have you excited to create your own and if you do we’d love for you to tag us so we can see them!
