You are now at Carol Hartery's blog. I had originally planned to create a more labor intensive project for this challenge, but then I thought about how busy we all are at this time of year and decided you (and I) would be happier with an idea that’s quick and easy to create and says, "Merry Christmas" to the recipient.
I own 3 of the 4 sizes of the Dot Circle Frames and find myself using them over and over again for my cards and other paper crafts. For today’s project I selected the Medium Dot Circle and Small Solid Circle wooden stamps. I printed Denami Design's downloadable template for the small gift bag on a sheet of white tag. Then I used my Scarlet and Fresh Green ColorBox pigment stamp pads with the stamps and stamped all over the bag. I sprinkled Detail Clear Embossing Powder over the stamped images and embossed them with my heat gun.
This gift bag is the perfect size for a gift card or a small gift. It can also be used as a favor bag at the dinner table. For this blog hop I used Christmas colors on the bag, but you could use school colors if you were creating a bag for a graduation gift or other holiday colors on other holidays. You can purchase the template for this gift bag on the Denami Design web site at this link http://denamidesign.com/cart.php?m=product_detail&p=999
