Stocking Gift Bag

Hello!  Time is always in short supply this time of year, right?  But, you can still make a "home-made" gift bag by decorating the front of a pre-purchased gift bag. 

I bought a package of kraft-style gift bags from the store and jazzed them up with some cute Christmas stockings and a raffia bow.  Cut the stocking using your Sizzix Big Shot machine and the Holiday Stocking Bigz Die (#124098, $32.95).  I used Real Red card stock for the stocking and some scraps of Candlelight Christmas Designer Series Paper (#126901, $12.95) for the cuff, heel, and toe.  Very Vanilla card stock was transformed into a beautiful snowflake with the Snow Flurry Bigz Die (#127813, $21.95).  I only used the 2 smaller snowflakes and saved the large one for another project.  I added one of our Large Pearl Basic Jewels (#125577, $4.95, 40 in a pack) to the center and attached the snowflake to the stocking with a Stampin' Dimensional (#104430, $3.95, 300 per pack). 

A little Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755, $3.95) on the back of the stocking was all I needed to adhere the stocking to the bag.  A quick bow made from some raffia decorates the handle of the gift bag and you are DONE!  See -- quick and easy!  Just add some tissue paper and your gift. 

Have a great day!  Oh -- quick reminder -- another RemARKable Stampers blog tour is coming this Sunday, December 9th!  Be sure to stop back and see all kinds of wonderful ideas using the Affection Collection stamp set.
