Christmas Gift Bag

Hello, and happy Friday!
A few days ago it tumbled down a package in my mailbox from Inkido/Papercraftscandinavia with Christmas papers.
Oh dear, I thought. It happened to be one of the hottest days so far this summer and some Christmas mood, I just could not feel.
But I grabbed an old scrapbook paper, and just like that, I was immediately inspired to make this gift bag. In addition, the nice images and papers are inspiration in itself.

I used one image from Santas Christmas sheet and the Winter Stars paper from the Forever Santa collection.
Around the edges of the image, I put on Picket Fence Crackle paint and sprinkled on glitter.

The chipboard star was first painted with a layer gesso, then stamped with the Snow Crystal stamp before I gave it a layer glitter Stickles.

A Christmas stamp was stamped and placed behind the image, together with one doily and gauze.
Some flowers and leaves was adhered in the left corner. A tag made of the same papers was tied round the handle.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Birgit
