Gift Bag

I made this yesterday and then tuned in to Simon Says blog to discover they were "going dotty" for this week's challenge.
Now how lucky is that--project already done. This concept of hanging a card on the gift bag really lets you embellish a card and not have flatten it by stuffing it into an envelope. You will probably see a lot of these under my tree this year.
This beautiful metallic gold and white polka dot DP is from a Christmas Stack a few years ago. I guess I was saving this paper for this very occasion. The tree stamp is a very old Inkadinkadoo but is so pretty when done in VersaMark and gold embossing. I popped on a few red gems for bling. The gold bows are both from ribbon stash. The sentiment is from SU's More Merry Messages from last year. The only thing new here is the bag itself.
The card hangs from a decorative slot in the bag.
This was designed, created, and sold by Laurie at Soapbox Creations. She may still have them available if you want to check it out.
And not one to waste anything, I used the cutout from the slot to decorate the inside of the card.
We spend a lot of time selecting just the right gift so we should make the packaging special too.




  1. So pretty, Donna, and that decorative slot in the bag is a great idea! The card is then a decoration for the bag. It's a two-fer!

  2. Gorgeous card & gift bag Donna, so elegant and the tree stamp is beautiful.
