12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop Dec 12-23 Day # 4

Welcome to Day 4 of the "Twelve Days of Christmas Blog Hop". We are so happy that you decided to Join us . If you arrived here from Mindy's then you are on the fight trail. If you just happened upon my blog and would like to join the fun then please start at the beginning with Lisa's Blog.

For my project today  have crafted a gift bag .

This is one of about a dozen bags I will be making to give to nursing staff on my unit. I usually fill them with a gift in a jar and pens , hand sanitizer markers and other little goodies!
I purchased the plain bags at Michael's. The patterned paper is  Studio G from Walmart The Snowman head was cut at 5 inches from my newest favorite cartridge "Tis The Season" by Creative Memories It is loaded with great images. The card stock is mostly Recollection from Michael's. The tag was cut with a Creative Memories tag pinch layers with a small piece of white which was stamped twice once with MS Aqua ink and the the sentiment in black ink . I used a corner punch om the patterned paper and inked the edges in Aqua, popped up the snowman image and added a few punched snowflakes

Your next stop is the very talented Nicolette so head on over to see what she has in store for you!

Janet, What a cute idea to do for the nurses! I love home made decorated bags, rather than store bought ones. My BFF always does this for me for every present she gives to me. It's so special. The snowman is really cute on the bag. tfs Tami
