Christmas Gift Bag

I'm back!  This time I've got a little Christmas gift bag to share!  I made this bag from my Kraft cardstock using Close To My Heart's exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.   The bag was cut using the 6" measurement.  Once the bag is folded and glued together, it is actually 3" wide x 2" deep and 5" high from top of handles to the bottom.



I used CTMH's Believe (X7145B) paper to wrap around the bag and used the zip strip from that same paper for a border.  Isn't that cool?  I cut two ornament tags, again using the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  The Sweet Leaf tag was cut at 2" and the Holiday Red tag was cut at 1 3/4".   I stamped the Holiday Red tag with my Versa Mark Ink and heat embossed White Embossing powder on the image.  The stamp is from December 25th (C1469).  This set is a great set for making quick tags.  I posted a video a few days ago about this.  If you missed it, you can see it HERE.

To 'wrap' is all up, I found some long ago retired fiber that has been hanging around just crying out because it has been ignored.  I need to make a few more of these little bags for some gifts so I think I'll be able to use it up finally!  (That will feel good!)

I was inspired to make this little bag by this week's ColourQ Challenge.  The colors were perfect and we were supposed to make anything EXCEPT a card!  A nice little change for me!  




These colors also go along with this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge so I'll be entering this one over there too! 

Be sure to check out both challenge blogs!  You'll get lots of great ideas!
