MCT 12 Day's of Christmas Day 9!


HUGE GIVEAWAY ALERT!
Okay, since it's Christmas, Emma decided to give away TWELVE of her FAVORITE things to ONE LUCKY person! She will announce one of the prizes for each day in her video! So by the 12th day, you will see ALL 12 items that ONE lucky person will be receiving! All you have to do is leave your comments each day! It's that simple! ALSO, **VERY IMPORTANT** Please leave your contact information so we can contact you "IF" YOU are the lucky winner! 


Good morning! First let me start out by saying SORRY for the HUGE picture :( I had a devil of a time photographing this! It kept coming up sideways when I would try to load it and then to small so a big shout out to Ruthie for saving my day and my sanity!! Welcome to Day 9 of MCT's 12 Day's of Christmas! Another day closer and another day broker bahahahaha!

I love how easy it is to dress up kraft gift bags (the hardest part is taking the picture of them afterwards lol) I picked up a pack of these at Hobby Lobby (with a coupon of course *snicker*) and just now getting a chance to alter one! I also had to run to our dollar store earlier and I ran across this candy cane wreath that I just had to buy! It was only .50 (so totally in my budget!) I started to make a card but after thinking about it, I wasn't sure how it would hold up to the Postal Service. It probably would arrive in a gazillion pieces so I played it safe and used it on my gift bag! The window is from the Christmas Solutions cartridge and I embossed it with the wood grain cuttlebug embossing folder. I also used this cartridge for my Christmas Tree. I've added a clear star gem to the top but it's a little hard to see behind my bow. Speaking of the bow, I used the Artiste Cartridge for it! I just LOVE the bows on this cartridge (I know your probably getting tired of hearing that but I do!!) I've also added a Red Glitter Gem (from the WorkShop on the Go, Pear & Partridge) to the center. The little branches are from a Martha Stewart Punch. I've also added some Liquid Applique to the windows. I would have added more but sniff, sniff I'm out!! Here is a closer look of my little window scene....


Next, I created by tag using Emma's, Just Tags & Stamp set. I love how they layer!! I also used From Our Family to Yours for the tree and sentiment! When I was stamping the tree, I made a oopsie and got a spot of ink where it shouldn't be so it's nicely covered up with a snowflake now hee hee! I've used twine to tie it to my bag and another Red Glitter Gem. All I like now is my tissue paper and I guess it wouldn't hurt to put a gift in there too!


I hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks for looking! Hugs, Leanne

Leane - a bag like that doesn't need a gift; it is one already! Love your project (the candy-cane wreath adds that 'special touch') and your 'how-it-came-to-be' was delightful to read! Pretty please - may I scraplift this?? Thank you for sharing and inspiring.
