Mix and match ribbons to use throughout your holiday gift wrapping and decor projects. 
We have hundreds of different ribbons to choose from - solids, stripes, prints, fabrications and sizes. The secret to creating pleasing ribbon combinations is to try to keep to a few colours that work well together.

Ribbon Inspiration - Striped and solid ribbons in gold and white ribbons and in a variety of different widths. 

Notice that we added 1/8" gold metallic ribbon to the ornament give tag.

Here we added a bow to a boxwood wreath using 1 1/2" ribbon and then used a 7/8" ribbon to hang.

Make everyday items in your home a little more festive by adding ribbons to them.

Tip: After the holidays remove the ribbons, use a flat iron to remove the wrinkles and store the ribbons so they can be reused next year.

Holiday Gift Wrapping Inspiration - Tissue paper is the finishing touch!

Holiday Gift Wrapping Inspiration - Tissue paper is the finishing touch! | creativebag.com

 So you're planning to use gift bags for your holiday gift wrapping but you are not quite sure how many sheets of tissue paper you will need and whether you should use solid or printed tissue papers. Great questions that we are asked all year round.

Today we are going to try to answer some of these gift wrapping questions and give you a little holiday gift wrapping inspiration at the same time!

Smaller gift bags only need two sheets of tissue paper. 
Here we combined a printed tissue paper with the gold metallic tissue paper to compliment the gold foil details on the bag.

Medium sized bags can be finished off with two or three sheets of tissue paper. It's really up to you!

Larger bags like this one require three or four sheets of tissue paper.

We like to mix printed tissue with solid tissue paper for two reasons - 1. it looks good and 2. it is often more cost effective to use solid coloured tissue paper vs. printed or speciality papers.

This extra large gift bag has a lot going on with six pieces of tissue paper. We could have got away with using just 4 sheets of tissue paper but we decided to go big on this one by mixing two printed tissue papers with the white and gold tissue.

The wood slice ornament on the buffalo plaid gift bag was made by local Etsy artisan Amy Wetton from Wild Canary Studio. Adding a gift topper like this to your gift bag is visually beautiful and a little "bonus" gift!
