Christmas Time is Near

Hi everyone! Are you ready for Christmas? Me? I am almost there...I still have presents to wrap and a couple of pies to make and I will finally be able to sit back and relax for a moment. Then it will be back to getting projects ready for CHA in January.
Well, I wanted to share a bag I altered. I created this for a swap I was in with my sweet friend Lisa. I first started with a 6.25"x9.25" kraft paper bag. I used the following cardstock collections to decorate the front and back of the bag: Prima-Sweet Peppermint, Sizzix: Brenda Walton-Merry & Bright and Crate Paper-Bundled Up. I used a scalloped edge punch to create the pocket which I glued to the bag along with a doily and two strips of cardstock. I then cut the Reindeer from Gold Glitter cardstock and adhered to the corner of the pocket. I cut verbiage and numbers from the Merry & Bright collection. The number are from the Billboard Alphabet Diecut. Once everything was cut it was added to the front of the bag.


The back of the bag I adhered cardstock, pom poms and gold trim...the trim was a last year find at Target after Christmas for 90% off! I love a great bargain!


Next I gathered goodies to fill the bag. The little notebooks I found at Target in the Dollar Spot but they where originally 6"x6". I cut those down so they will fit into a Traveler's Notebook. Also I cut a tag from a Sizzix diecut packaging and wrapped washi tape samples onto it.


I filled up the bag with Tags I cut from the Merry & Bright Collection. The wreath paper clip I will share how to make those in a later post 😉
I hope you like this little bag I altered and if you have any questions please let me know.


 I would like to submit this project for the following challenge:


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
