Festive treat bags

Hey-lo and happy Friday! I have been hammering away at the Christmas projects recently and today I'm back with some festive gift bag.

We all need boxes and bags this time of year! Here I've made up a kraft pillow box decorated with Finn's Vintage Vanity papers, burlap, twine and topped off with this beyond kitsch plastic reindeer sat on a rosette (Tim Holtz die)! Don't you just love upcycling weird and wonder junk?!

For the bag, I've mixed up some papaers, using Vintage Vanity again and Hello Pastel - interesting to use Spring paper for Christmas!  Also used inked and embossed canvas, distressed doily and a 3D star which can double up as a Christmas decoration.

The star is detachable, made with a die cut that has been scored and folded up to create the dimension. I've added Prima flowers, vellum snowflake and a bubble sticker then pegged it onto the bag with a Prima clothes pin.

Last but not least....

I created this treat pocket by cutting a sheet of 12x12 paper in half and then folding in half again (short way if that makes sense!) to create the basic bag. The two side edges have been glued down and next was decorating, using some scraps of paper (Hello Pastel, North Country), fake "snow" and a layered up snowflake.

Hoping your festive crafting is running smoothly!

Bye for now,
