More Gift Bags!

Happy Christmas Eve!  I hope that you have a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones.  I've been really busy with holiday crafts and hope that you've enjoyed the posts this month.  I love getting crafty inspiration from blogs, which is why I do this blog...hoping to "pay it forward" and inspire someone else out there.  The best gift to a blogger is to leave a comment, so if you've been reading and like what you've seen, please take a moment to comment!

I'm on a roll with these gift bags!  I love how easy it is to take a plain white gift bag and give it a personal touch.  This time I used Close To My Heart's Artiste cartridge and a coordinating stamp.  I cut a lot of the ornaments and then stamped them while still on the mat.
The stamp colors I used are also from CTMH (Cranberry and New England Ivy).
Then I chose some holdiay cardstock from my stash.  I inked around the edges of the cardstok with New England Ivy.  I cut 3 pieces of twine and inserted them through an eyelet I had put into the top of the bag.  Each ornament was tied to the twine and then adhered to the bag.

I found it better to go ahead and adhere the ornaments down instead of letting them hang.

Fill it with some holiday goodies, add a tag, and you're good to go!

The tag is from My Creative Time, a die called "Stitched Oval Die" which you can find HERE.

Hope you enjoyed this project.  I am really enjoying Artiste and the coordinting stamps.

If you have any questions or more specific instructions, feel free to leave a comment and I'll explain further!

Go be crafty!
