Christmas gift bag

Hey hey! I hope you are enjoying your week so far and that the weather is nicer where you live than it is here. We've been getting rain, rain and more rain over the last couple of days. So this means all my planned trips around the country are postponed. Oh well, at least I have some more time for crafting, which is not bad either. :)

I made another gift bag that I'd like to show you. This one is for Christmas. I've decided that this year I'll be giving away Christmas gifts in either gift bags like this one or in the handmade gift boxes (which I still have to make) - depending on the size (and shape) of the gift. So, here's the gift bag I made recently.

I used another of Mo Manning's adorable images. This one is called Winter fairy Talva. As usually, I did the coloring with distress inks. I had some pom pom trim in my stash and I used it to frame the oval behind Talva. Doily, lace and sequins came from my stash as well. I embossed the oval with Cottage floral embossing folder by Craft concepts. The big snowlake is cut out with Marianne design die and the small ones were cut with Sizzix die. Snowflakes were cut out of white cardstock, which I later covered with Stickles. I used Stickles on Talva's wings, snowball and on parts of Talva's dress as well. 

The ribbon I used for the handles is from Crafty ribbons.
