Christmas Bag of Goodies

With all the great Christmas oriented challenges running this month I thought I would get started on little bags for the Old English toffee that I make and give away during the holiday season.  Included with the bag is a pull-out tag wishing the recipient a "cool" holiday season.

The bag and tag were cut using my Cricut Expressions Plantin SchoolBook cartridge.

I used one of the new 3D Decoupage images from Digital Delights - Candy Cane Jingles. All you have to do is print the sheet and then cut out all the pieces.  I used Laila's general purpose silicone to attach my pieces one on top of the other until all the layers glued.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Sentiment Set.

Project Recipe:
Stamps: Candy Cane Jingles, Christmas Sentiment set
Paper: Bazzill, dp is from an old Michael's paper pack
Markers: Distress Faded Jeans, I added a little Copic R20 to the cheeks
Embellishments: Recollections bling, Cricut Plantin SchoolBook cartridge, craft ribbon

There are some really fun challenges out there and I am entering these:

Have a great day!
