I always sew reusable gift bags for Christmas and other holidays. It's easy, they're eco friendly, and they're realllllly easy to store. I love the minimal cleanup too. This year I wanted to buy a couple of blank Santa bags though because it would set Santa's gifts aside from the gifts from each other. Also, I think these were pretty affordable to buy and that much image design, heat transfer vinyl, etc to make my own probably would've cost more.

Place your heat transfer vinyl face down on your cutting mat. Load your mat into your Silhouette machine and print per the specifications your program gives you.
