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
