For Christmas I was trying to think of a smaller gift for the various people that I do gaming stuff with, and I came up with these bags. I just bought the plain canvas bags from Hobby Lobby and used freezer paper to cut out stencils and did designs on the front and back. I did favorite color mana symbols for the Magic players and fave chars for the Clixors, and then stuffed them all with matching color '1/2 marbles' from Hobby Lobby for the tokens, and dice. It was an inexpensive project that was fun to do and easy to personalize for each gamer! I did 10 in total and it didn't take very long at all. The longest part was cutting them. I used metallic paint because it tends to bleed less on me. It doesn't show as well here, but it's a bronze that looks very nice on the natural canvas color. This project would be even cheaper if you could make your own bags, although the ones I bought were only $1-$1.50.

Black and White mana symbols...
Back of Black and White mana symbols..my friend likes b/w so I put a grim reaper on the back of his white mana bag, and my other friend likes faerie decks, so I popped on on the back of his.
A Sliver bag for one guy (slivers are a monster type in Magic) and flame for the red mana bag (red mana symbol is fire).
