Finally a snowy cold morning here! Perfect time to show you the Christmas bags I was working on. In total I made 10 of these and started them back in October. Well started planning and purchasing. I added a lot of photo's for these since there is so much detail.
Every year for my husband's company Christmas Party I make a little something for a staff giveaway. This year I decided on Kraft Bags. I went to a local packaging store to get some goodies and inspiration. There are 5 bags shown here but in total I made 10. These Kraft bags were a great price at $1.89 per.
I picked up the ribbon and bells from Michaels and this mesh ribbon from the $1 Store. It has gold in it to, so very festive!
I ended up last minute adding some tags. For these I stamped a French Script on the background then stamped these Tim Holtz Holiday stamps in clear, then clear embossed. Once that was done I distressed with some TH Distressing inks.
The designer paper is new this year from Stampin Up. The stamp is a Vintage Holiday Post Card which I embossed in black. I then coloured the key with my markers, re-stamped and cut them out. Then popped them up for dimension. Notice the Antique Brads, also SU.
Inside the bag is another bag holding the Gift Cards. I picked up these little Kraft bags from the same packaging store, $3.99 for 100! I stamped these TH trees then added some Martha Stewart white glitter glue for snow. The tag is the Buck again stamped and punched as a tag to tie in the two bags.
I stamped the tree again on each Two Tags Die Cut Tag. Then tied off a button with Twine.
In each bag there are 5 tags tied together with a Gift Card on each. The front tag has my husband's Business card (not shown) representing a day off to the lucky employee.
Here is the full set of 5 laid out for you. These bags took me a total of 3 hours per bag to complete.
Each bag is worth about $200 as a gift. Due to the fact of the day off.
I'm so proud of these little bags and I was proud to stamp my Oh Scrap on each of them.
