Gift bags

Christmas may be long over but that doesn't mean I'm not still giving out gifts (nothing like being organized!). I finally dropped off my last couple of Christmas presents and so I can share the gift bags that I created for them.
The bags were super quick and easy to make. I used a couple of House Mouse stamped images that I had pre-coloured, matted them on some plain cardstock, and then added a shiny ribbon. The decorative border along the top of each bag was made with Martha Stewart's pine branch border punch and a strip of Sookwang double-sided tape with red glitter added. 

House Mouse & Friends - celebrate
Crafty Emma - all creatures great & small
Fuzzy Wuzzy - anything goes (with an animal)
Crafty Sentiments - anything but a card
ABC Christmas - anything Christmas
Fab n Funky - anything goes
Anything Goes Challenge - something "C" (I chose "C" for Christmas)
