Hello Kitty Gift Bag

I have gotten so into making fun gift bags that I often plan the bag before I know what gift will go inside it and than when I shop for the gift I make sure it will fit in the bag before choosing it. I enjoy the smiles on the faces when I walk in with these hand decorated bags.  
For my best friend's daughter I choose Hello Kitty because her whole room is decorated different in Hello Kitty: bedspread, lamp, wall images and more. My daughter picked out the gift (a Barbi set!) for her friend and than choose what color bag to get, of course it was pink. I choose these fun cuts all from Hello Kitty Greetings and Hello Kitty Font to make the perfect gift bag for the new 5-year-old.
I have found when cutting characters I make the best use of my paper as well. I make sure to measure out what I will need for the different pieces and cut the paper to place in the right section on my mat. I cut 4-5 colors at once which means more time saved and more projects get done.
