I thought I would share with you another version of the original little gift bag with FREE tutorial that I made a wee while back. Today's bag has just one larger drawer underneath (perfect for hiding that precious bar of chocolate!). This bag is made using the new Gumball Green from the new In colour 2012 -2014 available today. I totally love the brand-new stitched satin ribbon. The small bauble window was cut out with one of the new Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies (page 3 in the A/WC (Autumn/Winter Catalogue)) and backed with a piece of clear Window Sheet. I ran the 2-way glue pen around the edges and sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The pretty paper surrounding the window is from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack (page 20 in the A/WC). This paper stack has gorgeous small prints in a huge variety of colours and patterns - perfect for any occasion! The drawer handles are Real Red Glimmer Brads from page 174 of the AC (Annual Catalogue).
The back view features a 3-d Snowflake using the Snow Flurry Bigz Die p 186 in AC & P 14 in A/WC which has been cut in the Big Shot. I used Red Glimmer Paper from P 160 in the AC which gives a gorgeous rich sparkle. The to/From tag is from the Tags til Christmas stamp set on p 11 in the AC. and punched out with the Decorative Label punch on p182 in the AC.
On Friday I made this really cute Tissue Holder which makes a perfect wee gift for someone and is also a great item to sell at Craft Fairs too. I've used the new Candlelight Christmas Designer Fabric from page 4 in the A/WC. It took less than 5 minutes to make, including cutting out time! I was so pleased with this Tissue Holder as I'm not a sewer and can't machine a straight line (oooops!).
For something just a bit different, on Friday I had my first attempt at using the Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps. I was quite pleased with the results here, especially because I used Gluten-free flour so that my husband could eat them too!
One last thing to share today is one of the many different cards I've made in the last few days, using the Holiday Ornament stamps and dies in the Holiday Frame embossing folder and backed with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder. I will share some of the others over the next couple of weeks.
Now you can go over to visit the incredibly talented Carolyn's blog and see the lovely treat she has in store for you.
