Fun Gift Bags

I needed a couple gift bags for our great grandsons and wanted them to match (somewhat) the cute ornaments I made for them. The ornaments will probably be used as the tags so the boys will know which one goes to who.


I have a package of these white gift bags and they were perfect for this use!  Sometimes I decorate a gift bag I have received and saved but I didn't want to do that for Christmas gifts.  The deer print paper and deer die are not available.


I used some glittery paper I received as a gift as the blanket on the deer.


You've seen quite a few items I've made with the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set and coordinating dies.  I used some Crystal Stickles on the torn piece of paper under the gnomes to look like snow.

Since the boys are 8 and 3 I really doubt they'll appreciate the bags but I know their mom will love these.

A Couple Little Ornaments

I ran out of ornaments to give family so quickly made a couple more this past week.

I started both using FSJ's very cool Paper Fan Die.  I've used it a LOT!


Aren't these cute!!  The print papers are from a retired FSJ Print Paper pack and I'm getting low on what is now available.  But I did mess up and didn't catch it until I glued the back circle on these.  Look at the edges of both.  The dark one does not have a scalloped edge!  I accidentally put the scallops in the center!  What a hoot!  The pink and teal circles are glitter paper from a gift.



I love how these turned out and I hope our great grandsons will like them.  I love FSJ's Gnome for the Holidays stamp set and its coordinating die set! In fact, this set has been SO popular it sells out of stock! Hopefully it will be back in soon.  I told hubby I want a gnome coffee cup for Christmas and I showed him one on Amazon but I'll be surprised if he gets it.  If not, maybe I'll order it after Christmas sometime.

I have made a couple gift bags for them, too.  I'll get them shared shortly!

A Couple Gift Card Holders

Since we give so many gift cards I like to dress them up to look nice. No store bought holders from us!  And I can get a bit wonky with them as these kinda look (at least to me). These are for 2 of our granddaughters.



I hope they like them.  Now just to get them in the mail... Hopefully today or Monday.
The print papers are retired and the sparkle papers are from a gift. The letters are also from a retired stamp set. The stamped images on Rylie's gift card holder are from the Poinsettia Burst stamp set and cut with the Poinsettia Burst coordinating die set. I used a wide variety of card stocks, some Gold Stickles, and some fun red dots from my stash, too. See below for the majority of products used. To make my poinsettia flowers match the ones on the print paper I colored in the center veins with a black colored pencils and added some deep red to blend a bit.

Do you send many gift cards?
