Christmas Gift Bag

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the crafting world!
I hope your week has been going well for you so far.  Are you ready for all the little trick or treaters?  I can't believe that it's Halloween and here I am posting a Christmas project!  But, I know I better get a move on, because Christmas will be here way too soon!

So, a few days ago I shared a fun treat holder that I put together using my new stamps from Jaded Blossom.  You can see my post "Santa Kisses" here.  After photographing and putting this project away, it hit me that the only thing missing was a fun gift bag!  So, I pulled out my Jaded Blossom stamps and Christmas paper and got busy....

* I started with a plain Kraft bag - I used a paper punch and the pretty gingham paper to dress up the top of my bag.
* The tag is from the Silhouette Online Store - I machine stitched around the edges
* That lovely Christmas Tree and sweet sentiment are both from the "Christmas Wishes" stamp set by Jaded Blossom. The tree is stamped with "Mowed Lawn" ink by Ranger
* I added some great "Holly Berry" twine from Trendy Twine and a jingle bell to finish up my tag.

That's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful, safe Halloween tonight!  Enjoy those trick or treaters and don't eat too much candy!

Until next time,
