This week's theme at The Kraft Journal is "Christmas Gifts". I saw a tutorial a while back on a blog hop and thought it was so cute. It's called "Box in a Bag" and you can find an excellent tutorial for it at Splitcoast Stampers here.
I created the box that forms the base of the bag with Brown Kraft cardstock and used another piece for the bag body. I stamped and embossed snowflakes in white all over the kraft paper. I wrapped the base of the bag with a punched strip of Buff Ivory and two different Merry Christmas paper tapes.
The bag is held closed with a piece of White Twill Tape. The Scalloped Grungy Prim tag has a strip of the Christmas paper tape adhered to it as well as a Jenni Bowlin Christmas ticket and Vintage Christmas chipboard button. I used some Hang Tag string to tie the button.
The decorating possibilities with this little bag are endless so I hope you'll give it a try. It's easy as pie to make too. :-)
Link up your Christmas gift projects for your chance to be a winner.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving week!
