And now a gift bag in the traditional colors of the season:
(This bag is perfectly straight – the photographer has “issues”!)
Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive make a bright and cheery Christmas combination. Stampin’ Up! really knocked our socks off (get it?? c’mon, you’ve gotta at least giggle) with the Stitched Stockings stamp set and coordinating punch. Seems like every other project I’ve done this year has had a stocking theme – but they’re all so different!
The big scallops on the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die are echoed in the small scallops from the Scallop Trim border punch, and I am crazy about those tiny little jingle bells . You can stick them on with a Glue Dot if you’re in a rush, but for things that I want to last I use a little piece of beading wire. (I know, I get kind of goofy with stuff like that).
The best part about using gift bags is that they are re-usable! No more mountains of gift paper piled up and thrown away. It’s not such a small thing, you know – but even if it were, small gestures add up and become significant. Use a gift bag this year – and next year too!
