Good Monday morning my wonderful crafty friends!! Hope all is well with you and that you had a wonderful weekend. Are you ready for our new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2? Our most fabulous leader Susan is our hostess this week. She has challenged us to make a Holiday Gift Container.
I started out making a box and decided that I just didn't like it. So back to the drawing board, or Gypsy Girl, I went. I decided on a bag instead. I found this most fabulous DP at Hobby Lobby in their open stock. It is from Echo Park. I just love it. It is two sided and I like both sides but my favorite is the side with the stars on it. Makes me think of the Christmas Star. I didn't make note of the size I cut the bag, but I made it fit to page. The poinsettias are from the Winter Woodland cartridge. You can find it on page 40. I cut them at 2.25 inches. I didn't cut the center piece because I wanted to use bling instead. I glued one to the bag and popped the other one up on one thickness of foam tape. The bow is some seam binding that I dyed and crinkled. The tag is from the Tiny Tags Metal Die and the sentiment is from the 'Joy Filled Christmas' stamp set. Both of these are from My Craft Spot. Kimberly has some great die sets and wonderful stamp sets.
Would love for you to head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the creations that my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!!! And while you are over there, check out the rules for our challenges in the sidebar. Then why don't you head to your crafty space and create a new Holiday Gift Container using a Cricut Cut and link it by Sunday, December 8th. I so love seeing what you come up with.
Hope ya'll like my Gift Container!!!! :)
