Day 5- Festive Blog Hop- Gift Bags

Hello Papercrafters,

Welcome Back to our Festive Hop, it's already Day 5, the fun goes by so fast :) I've gotten so many great ideas from the other Glitter Queens, it's going to be fun to try some new ideas out.
For today's hop I was told the theme is Gift Bags, another fun project just in time for the holidays.  I recently bought some plain, undecorated bags from one of those $1. stores, I picked up some in white, purple, pink, red, blue, and the kraft color, I had already decided to decorate my own bags for the holiday season.

For the hop I decorated a pink bag and one of the kraft bags. On the pink bag I used the 'Snow Festival' dsp in the mini, I used one side with the owls for my framed image and made the starry band using the other side. I used the big shop pennant die to create the tag in the upper right corner.

For the kraft bag I had an idea to create a poinsettia using the same method as the ornaments on the cover of the holiday mini. I used the ornament dies, 2 different sizes to create the petals, then I felt it needed a little sparkle so I added some dazzling diamonds to the edges. I used the 'Bells and Boughs' set to add a little stamping and used the snowflake die to cut out the sparkly snowflakes.

I hope you enjoyed the hop and are inspired to create some of your own Gift bags for the holidays.

Thanks for your comments and for visiting my blog.
Have a great weekend!
