Wrapping it Up for Christmas

     It was finally time to do something other then a card for Christmas so I started on my gift bags.  This is the first one but I have some others I may get done in time to share them over the weekend.  This is a re-cycled vellum bag; originally it held a birthday gift but I wanted to combine the polka dots on the bag with the polka dots in the dp I chose.  I thought the white dots looked a bit like snow and that made it perfect for a Christmas theme.


     This is a fun image from Aurora Wings (Anything but a Card) and I wanted to stay very CAS on this bag.  I colored the kitten and lights image with my ProMarkers, then cut the image into a square and added the sparkly twine before adhering it onto the dp (SU.)  That entire piece went onto the bag and it was done.  I'll make a matching tag for it before using it this year.
