Tonight, I am showcasing the fabulous Christmas Ornaments Die-namics and Stamp Set. I love this set! It is so incredibly versatile. I created two gift bags to share with you tonight. I used plain Kraft bags that you can easily find at any craft store.
My first bag was created with an adult in mind. I wanted it to be fun, yet grown up. I used some prints from My Mind's Eye, Lost & Found Christmas collection. I paired it with Bravo Burgundy textured card stock, Fossil and Brushed Gold card stock. I hung the ornaments on pieces of twine that I had colored with a Copic marker.
The tag was created using the Tag You're It Die-namics die and the oval from the new Vintage Cameo Frame Die-namics die. The sentiments are from the Christmas Ornaments stamp set.
At the top of the bag I used the new Crown Border Die-namics die. I love to add a border to the top of these bags. I just think it finishes them off nicely. I also added a bit of Bravo Burgundy Grosgrain. If you take a close look at the tissue paper you will see that I stamped it with gold snowflakes. These snowflakes are a part of the Christmas Ornaments stamp set. Stamping the tissue paper really adds to the overall feel of the bag. It is so easy to do, but it can be a bit time consuming! LOL
My next bag is a little brighter. I used some prints from My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas collection. (I do own other brands of paper, I just seem to gravitate towards MME!). I used Red Hot card stock and some Maraschino Red Twine.
I used the Wonky Scallops Border Die-namics to wrap around the top of the bag. I added a bit of festive American Crafts ribbon to finish it off. For this bag I stamped on the red tissue paper using white craft ink. Again, the stamps are from the Christmas Ornaments stamp set.
Here is a close up of the ornaments. I cut out four of each of the ornaments. I scored each ornament right down the middle and I adhered them together. One thing I forgot to do was place the twine inside the ornament before the last edges were taped together. I was able to stick the twine in afterwards but I would highly recomend doing it before! LOL
That's it for me today. I really hope you have enjoyed all the projects the MFT Design Team has created for you this month. Don't forget to check out Kim's Blog to see all the eye candy from the Design Team!
