Christmas treat bag

Hey hey! How are you doing? Fall is in full swing here - foggy mornings, cloudy weather and colorful leaves on trees. I think I should start getting those warmer clothes closer to the front of the wardrobe and "hide" those shorts and summer dresses in the back for next year. When fall comes, I know winter is not far away either and in winter comes my favourite holiday - Christmas. :) This year I'm being a bit more organized; I've already started thinking about Christmas gifts. And I am planning on working more on my Christmas cards too. Are you thinking about Christmas yet? 

I like wrapping my Christmas gifts in pretty paper, but some items are really small, and it's hard to wrap them up, so I came up with a "solution" - a pretty handmade Christmas bag. I've made a couple of those in Halloween theme, but I thought I should make one for Christmas as well. I also made a video tutorial for it, in case you are wondering how to make it. Just scroll down and check it out if you want.

I decorated this bag with some lovely DCWV papers. For the shaker I used different sequins from my stash. Bow is made with ribbon from Crafty ribbons store and the adorable reindeer is a stamp from Dashing set from The greeting farm. I love the fact that these stamps come with matching dies, they are such a time saver! 

I coloured the image with Promarkers and pencils and I used some liquid applique on the hat. I also used 2 die cut stars and 2 crystals to decorate the bag.

And here's the video tutorial for making this (treat) bag. 

So much from me today. Have a wonderful day! xx
