I have a confession. I love beautifully wrapped presents.
No matter what is in the package or bag, as long as it looks sparkly and bright I will love it! I try to make sure that every gift I give brings a smile to the recipients face before they even get a chance to open it… it makes the whole gift-giving and receiving even more fun!
BIC is encouraging us to keep writing and creating this season with awesome products like BIC Mark-It™permanent markers and BIC’s Month of Merry Marking, which has a ton of inspirational ideas to make the holidays bright… like this project to dress up an ordinary gift bag!
Their permanent markers offer 44 vibrant, long-lasting colors for endless inspiration!
The bold, fade-resistant ink is low odor (this is a HUGE deal to me) and acid-free (no added acid and no measurable pH) so you don’t need to worry and they are totally family-friendly too! You can find BIC Mark-It™ permanent markers available in 36 packs of fine or ultra-fine bold, vibrant colors or the 8 pack of metallic colors. These give you tons of inspiration to spread some joy!
For this project, I’m using the #PlatinumSilver metallic marker.
I love how it sparkles and shines! This is such a fun and easy project that you can do even if you are low on time. After the kids all went to bed I grabbed a cup of hot cocoa, a white gift bag, my BIC Mark-It™ Permanent Markers, and a cookie cutter and I was all set to get working.
The cookie cutter is my secret trick to getting the exact shapes I want.
I have so many cookie cutters for each season and holiday that I can choose the exact one I want to use. For this gift bag, I decided to go with a fun snowflake design. It was so easy and only took a few minutes to complete. I love how it turned out!
That’s it! So easy and stress-free! I had a great evening making this and I think some of my friends would enjoy it too! I nominate my friends Dana, Danielle, Ann and all of you to participate in BIC’s Month of Merry Marking!

What an adorable idea! I love it and wouldn’t ever think to do this myself! Very cool and cute!
This is such cute idea!! Awesome!
This is so cute! I think it would be fun for the kids to do too!!
I could use a pen like this for sure. It will be perfect for all gifts marking 🙂
You are very creative because I would have never thought to have used a cookie cutter for my gift bag designs. How cute!
It’s easy ideas like this that inspire me to let my creativity shine. Thanks.
That added just the right amount of Christmas to a plain white bag. Love it!!
This is a great way to dress up a gift bag. We made some cute goodie bags a few days ago using the Bic markers. My daughter also decorated her camel back for band.
Clever idea to use cookie cutters for outlining! This will be a great craft for my kids this year to put a personal touch on our holiday gift giving!
Didn’t realize Bic was doing paint pens, I always bought Sharpies for that!
That is such a great idea to use the cookie cutter. I would have never thought of that.
I make gift giving easier by buying gift cards LOL. I know, it’s the easy way out….
What a great idea to dress up a plain brown paper bag gift. And…. much less expensive than buying a fancy holiday bag. I need to get me some of those pens in some nicer colors than I have.
I really like the idea! Personalized bags are much more fun than the store bought ones!
I love colored pens! This is a great way of putting them to good use. 🙂
OOOOOOOHHHHH! What a fun idea. I could do it with my kids, art project and gift bag. I am learning so many new uses for cookie cutters.
So neat! I’ll have to look for these!!
What a cute idea to add some pizzazz to a plain gift bag. It is less expensive and adds a personal touch to the bag.
That is really cute! Something so easy can be so pretty!
Bic pens are awesome during the holidays!
Such a cute idea! I love the metallic- makes them so much more festive!
This is a great, fun, and very simple idea. I love metallic inks and I am becoming more and more a fan of DIY projects.
I like the way you all decorated your bags! That’s a great way to add a little pazzazz for Christmas!
This is an awesome idea for decorating gift bags. I love Bic markers for crafts along with things that sparkle and shine so this is perfect. Thanks for sharing and I will have to check it out.
Terrific idea to add a little something extra that way. I love simplicity that works!
I like pretty wrapping too. I think this is a fun/easy/great idea, and it turned out nice!
What pretty packaging! I need one of those pens!
So cute! My daughter would love to do this!
This is such a cute idea! I love decorating gift bags.
