1st Dose of Christmas Inspiration!

Here is a quick and easy gift bag project featuring stamps from Stampin’ Up!’s® Doodle This stamp set, embossed in gold embossing powder and embellished with green rhinestones from Darice. I found the cute green pinstripe bag at Target for 49 cents. I used some gold ribbon, red tissue and red fibers I had to dress up the packaging. I was able to create this using just 1 sheet of 5" x 5" Wall Art Adhesive from Glue Arts!

The layered poinsettia was created with embossed flowers on Berry linen cardstock that were hand cut and layered. To give it some dimension and shine, I rolled up the petals on the top flower, sprinkled red glitter and applied it to the back of the petals. It attaches quickly to the wall art adhesive. I finished off the center with some green rhinestones from Darice.

Here is a close up of the decorative gift tag. You can add a seasonal message and to/from information on the back side. The edges were gilded in gold by dragging them across versamark pad and embossing in gold embossing powder.
