A Gift for You

I'm back again with another Christmas project. I used Basic Grey's Wassail to cover the front of a plain white gift bag and added some velvet ribbon and lace.

Last year I read a tutorial by Debbie Olson on how to make a poinsettia using Tim Holtz's Tattered Flowers die. Since then I have always wanted to give this a try this so this project gave me the perfect opportunity. The flower was stamped using Our Daily Bread Design's Joy to The World Hymn with PTI's Fresh Snow Ink and the edges were inked with Photo Vintage. The center was made with two Cuttlebug die glittered snowflakes. A simple project to dress up a plain gift bag. Don't you just love simple? Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a joy filled day!
