in preparation for Christmas, I have made a few gift bags ready for those little wrap ups. each of the bags was hand stamped with different designs, to suit a variety of people. I have also made coordinating tags, by cutting shapes from kraft cardstock, stamped with sentiments from the stampin up! set made for you and the matching stamped image (I placed these so part of the larger images or multiples of the smaller images were seen). I added accents of cosmic shimmer iridescent watercolour paints in various colours on a few of the bags to add a touch of Christmas sparkle. I fastened each of the bags with black or natural raffia (depending on the design) to finish... I'm sure anyone would be happy to find one of these filled with goodies under the tree !!
