Snowflake Gift Bag

Happy Wednesday!

The design team has been showing you some elegant ways to wrap up your holiday gifts this week and today I have decorated a gift bag to share with you.

I started out with a small white gift bag that I got a Michael's and with a little stamping ended up with this beauty!

Here's a close up look at the snowflake panel.  I stamped Elegant Snowflake Border several times on a white panel in Blue Lagoon Fluid Chalk ink.  I had some metal snow flakes that were about the same size as some of the snowflakes so I adhered them to the bag using Scrap Happy Glue.

I stamped Gift Tag in black ink on a white scrap and trimmed it.  I die cut a Spellbinders scalloped edge rectangle which I cut in half and glued back together to make it a little smaller so it framed the tag more evenly.  I used a Hot Aqua Sharpie to out line the swirls and dots and glued a metal snowflake to the tag.  Then I punched a hole in the tag and tied it on with ribbons.

The top is just a 1 1/2" strip of card stock that I punched the lower edge of and glued to the bag.
