It’s crazy how once my kids started going to school, there seemed to be a birthday party practically every weekend! Of course, my kids want to go to every single one so we’ve had to come up with some pretty creative (and inexpensive!) gift giving. I can’t tell you the number of times the dollar section at Target has saved us. Just throw in a few little gifts in this Quick & Easy Cute Birthday Gift Bag made with Expressions Vinyl EasyWeed and we’re good to go!

Since I’m giving you the this super cute “Oh Happy Day” free design file, making this gift bag should take no time at all! All you’ll need is a blank tote bag (I really like these green ones from Consumer Crafts), vinyl from Expressions Vinyl (I work with them but they really are my favorite!), and a cutting machine (this is my Cricut Air 2).
Depending on the machine you use, you’ll have to convert the design file to cut out the vinyl in your program software. It was super easy to just delete the background white space in Cricut Studio. You may need to adjust the size of the image to fit on your blank gift bag. Once the file is ready, just send it over to your machine to cut it out of the vinyl. Don’t forget to click that “mirror” button!
Weeding is one of my favorite things about using Expressions Vinyl Easyweed Heat Transfer Sheets. It’s always so painless and well, easy! The “Oh Happy Day” design is simple enough that it only takes a few minutes to separate.
All that’s left to do is transfer with a hot iron!
Once your quick and easy cute birthday gift bag is done, all you have to do is fill it with little gifts, add some tissue paper, and you’re good to go! We filled the gift bag in the picture below with a fun letterboard and some fun extra pieces all of which cost less than $7 so that the total cost of the gift, including the bag, was right around 10 bucks. Not too bad for a super cute little gift, right?
Hope you guys enjoy making your own quick and easy cute birthday gift bag!
