#3 Kraft Christmas Gift Bag

For Artic Fox OSAAT DT Ch194 click here.     

Created this Christmas Gift Bag altering a basic Kraft bag using green, red & white colors. Embossed red cardstock with Basic Grey/Sizzix embossing folder. Used a Spellbinder die to make Tag. Used Stamp N Plus Red chalk on edges of Tag. Internet friend, Gail of I Like Paper, gifted me the Stamped Clear Dollar Stamps sentiment 'Jingle all the way' & Santa bag stamped on tag. Added stickles/glitter, a jingle bell & washi tape.

Photographed on my fireplace mantle. Can you tell I'm a fan of Snoopy & Woodstock?
