{bag & a tag}

I was honored to be asked to join in on the Christmas DT Reveal over at Just Imagine Crafts, where I have been guesting this month.  Be sure to check out the DT's holiday cards and layouts!  I have been loving the Kreaxions punch #914.  The combination of the cute holly and the pretty scallop has me giddy.  :)
For my bag I used some older, but still some of my very favorite, Making Memories Christmas papers. 

I added a punched border to the bottom of the pattern paper border sheet. I punched a strip using light green card stock and backed it with dark green paper to make the holly leaves pop. I used red pearls for the berries. I then punched 2 borders out of dark green and cut off the scallop and layered them at the bottom of the border.
I used the super easy to use circle cutter to cut a circle in the text paper.  I rounded the corners of the paper and adhered it to the bag along with the glittery snowflake.
I cut down the circle a little bit to make the tag. Added a felt holly embellie along with an SRM sentiment and tied it to the bag with some Twinery Twine.
From my family to yours, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2013!
