Merry Christmas Gift Bag

Hi everyone,  Steph Ackerman here today finalizing last minute Christmas projects.

I love giving gifts in hand made gift bags and wanted to create something special.  Using a variety of stamps and stencils, it's easy and fun to create the perfect gift bags.

Using a white gift bag, I inked The Crafter's Workshop Vineyard stencil with ColorBox Crafter's Ink for Ann Butler in Evergreen.  The large sized stencil make it possible to ink the entire bag without moving the stencil.


Die cutting red and green ovals, I placed them in the center of the gift bag, then used the Crafter's Workshop North Star stencil with Art Anthology Frost Sorbet on the red oval.  This provided some nice dimension.
To finish, I stamped and fussy cut the house from the Unity Little Haven stamp set on Beautiful Daydreams pattern paper and the clouds from the Unity Fly Away stamp set on white cardstock.  Reindeers were added to the roof with foam adhesives, and Stickles were placed on one reindeer's nose and the roof line of the house.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Merry Christmas.
