Secret Santa round Three

This is the third week of our Secret Santa exchange. Next week is the bigger gift and reveal. The first week, I made the Hershey nugget tin, seen here. The second week, I went with a store bought gift (a pretty mug with cocoa mix and such). This week, I got some small things and put them in this little bag. Cute, isn't it?

Although it looks like a normal lunch bag, this little number is about 4"x8". I cut an inch or so off the top because I didn't need it to be so tall. I then cut some cardstock and adhered it to the back after cutting a scalloped edge and scoring 1" down. When I folded it over, I punched holes and threaded the ribbon through. What's a gift without some ribbon?!

The snowmen are from an old Stampin' Up! set I have and, as you can see, I added some liquid applique for fun. I love the effect of the stuff (even though I hardly use it). Once the image was stamped, colored, and appliqued, I double matted it and stuck it on my little bag. I'm sure the recipient will appreciate it and love the contents!

  1. You are so crafty! I thought of you when I *considered* making that wrapping paper (you know the one) into Christmas paper. Sigh - maybe next year. :-) You should start a project blog "in your spare time" and we can do the projects "in our spare time". Miss you.
