Gift Bag

Happy Monday before Christmas! Are you ready? I am. I just have a couple of presents left to wrap and one more batch of cookies to bake. I am looking forward to the Christmas Eve service at church and then we'll take off for VA to see family. Fun times!

In order to get those last couple of presents wrapped I decided to try and decorate a gift bag with a snowman shaker. Here's what I came up with.

I started by stamping the kraft gift bag with the new medium Filagree Snowflake (673F) in VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with white EP. I did the same thing for the gift tag. The Snow Buddies image was stamped on white CS with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics and die cut with a circle nestie. Next I cut 8 rings out of white CS with my Cricut and glued them together. Once the glue was dry, I added the clear panel on top ad then the white scallop ring. Some glitter was added to the middle of the image and then I glued the other part on. I like the way this turned out. If I have enough time, I'm going to try and create another one. We'll see.

Have you checked out this week's challenge? We'd love to have you play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Shelia, thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking the time to comment - it's been a long while since I've had the time to take a trip around blogland but I'm so glad I caught your cute snowman creation - very cleverly done making a shaker bag! I also love the way the tag matches so beautifully! Shelia, have a very, very happy Christmas! x
