#2 Kraft Christmas Gift Bag

Created this Christmas Gift Bag altering a basic Kraft bag using green, red & white colors. Also used 'be merry be jolly' tissue not just in the bag but also on the front as a pocket. Embossed red cardstock with Cuttlebug Winter Border embossing border. Stamped sentiment 'be merry' on tag which is so appropriate since the tissue paper had 'be merry' words and inserted tag into pocket.

ink: VersaFine Onyx Black
machine: Sizzix BIGkick
paper:  Kraft gift bag, Christmas tissue paper, cardstock -  green, red
