I Come Bearing Gifts....
Each of these bags takes just a 12 x 12 sheet of lightweight card or heavy weight paper and a few scored lines. I stamped and heat embossed in gold a tree image from an Inkadinkado stamp set before cutting it out using an oval nestie. I used another stamp from one of my Inkdadinkado sets, which I also embossed in gold to match the tree embellishment. I used my Crop-a-dile to punch two holes in the top and threaded ribbon through, adding the tag before tying in a bow.
Kathy kindly got for me earlier this year. I wanted to take a small gift of some handcream to my pal who is in hospital and it looks so much more special in a handmade box. The beautiful ribbon was purchased at Michaels when I was in Florida recently, it has just the right amount of shimmer and sparkle.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing my festive packaging today, thanks for taking the time to visit my blog during this really busy time for us all - I do appreciate my readers and followers so much.
