Merry Christmas Packaging - C4C #112

Hi, all, this is going to be a quick post. It's time for Crazy 4 Challenges and this week's challenge is to create a gift package. Get all the details at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.

I had a few of these little wooden "bags" in my stash so I got one out and made a little gift bag out of it.

First I covered it with patterned paper from Basic Grey's Nordic Holiday line, then made a tag to go on it. I cut the tag base with MFT's Tag, You're It! Die-namics die, added some patterned paper, and cut about a million little holly leaves using MFT's new Christmas Ornaments Die-namics set. I made a wreath with the holly leaves and the sentiment flag is made with the Fishtail Banner Die-namics set. I added some red "berries" and tied it on the wooden bag with some baker's twine. I love how it turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you, including our new member - Dawn Easton of Treasure Oiler Designz.
