more GD creations for myStampBOX

How about a little self challenge ? Still not yet December - how about creating some  coordinating gift sets. Create a tag/gift wrap or card/gift bag or other matching sets. 
I would love to see your creations!

After assembling the background on the kraft gift bag here, I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment a couple of times below the top scalloped border. I also used the present stamp on a coordinating paper, coloring in the bows with red glitter glue. I cut it out and used it as an embellishment.
And viola, here is a gift bag and tag set that 
is quick and easy to put together with coordinating scrapbooking papers.

- Trim cardstock to 5.5”x8” , fold  to create card base of 4”x5.5”
- Trim patterned paper, then add a Dooblebug Frills border on the left of the patterned paper ,
 and adhere to card front.

- Stamp Christmas ornaments  on 2 different coordinating pieces of patterned paper, cut out, then adhere to card front.
- Add 2 different Doodlebug Frills borders to “hang “ the ornaments , adhere to card front.
- Add stickles / glitter glue for a touch of bling on the ornament and when dry , top off with Glossy Accents.
- Create 2 red and white twine bows , adhere to ornaments and finish off with a bling center on the bows.
- Stamp sentiment on a die cut banner
Tip : Other ideas to “hang” the ornaments – use hemp string, twine or a bling border instead of the ribbon. Or stamp another design – a flourish or other line designs.
Supplies: Cardstock: Kraft Swiss Dotted Carstock. Patterned Paper: WRMK White Christmas. Embellishments: Red & White twine, rhinestone and pearl bling, Doodlebug Frills paper ribbons, Martha Stewart Die Cut labels. Adhesive: Glossy Accent, Glue Dots
