A Merry Little Christmas


Stopping in with another project for Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenges. This challenge is to make a tag and gift bag. Also i think this my first Christmas project this year.... its never too soon to get started!!!

I stared with a large kraft lunch bag, just the regular kind you can get at the grocery store. I used the wreath from the PTI Rustic Wreath stamp set. I inked it up with PTI's Kraft ink and stamped it multiple times all over the front side of the bag. Then with a white opaque white pen i added white dots around each wreath.

Next on to the tag, i used the matching die to cut the wreath from Kraft card stock. I stamped the wreath with PTI's Fresh Snow white ink. Then i cut a kraft circle that is just smaller then the wreath, then adhered the wreath to the circle.

I stamped the Christmas sentiment in the center of the circle, then added a few leafs and dots in white ink. To make a tag out of it, i punched a hole at the top of the tag. Then i folded the top of the bag a couple times and punch a hole at one side. I added the tag with some hemp cord.
