A Shabby Holiday

Hello blog friends,

Well, just as one think you have enough boxes and gift bags there is always the last-minute surprise that you actually need one more. This little shabby bag is such a head over heels project. The corrugated cardboard bag is decorated with some of my Memory box dies, “Catalina wreath” and “Perched reed bird”. The letters on the tags were cut with a Lifestyle QuicKutz cutting die “Sugar Cookie”. This was so quick to make, I think I will make some more bags to keep at hand for emergencies.

Probably this will be my last post before Christmas so I’m wishing you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful and prosperous New Year! May you be blessed with love and joy. For my followers not celebrating Christmas, happy holidays. Thank you all for your support and comments during this year, I appreciate it so much. 

I am entering my gift bag in the following challenges:
