Bag It and Tag It...Homespun-Style

Coming in to the home stretch now for Christmas. The cards have probably been sent, the decorating is done, and now you need to quickly wrap those gifts. Here is a quickie wrap using Lizzie Anne Designs, "Oh, Christmas Tree" set. This set has a variety of trees in different shapes, sizes, and styles. For this bag and tag, I wanted to go more traditional with a homespun feel. I started with a kraft bag, and added a band of DP which I had continuously stamped the sentiment namesake for this set. This was adhered to a green band, and a tan cardstock run through the Corrugator for texture. The tag follows the same process, with the addition of this old-fashioned tree stamped on the tan cardstock, cut out, run  through the Corrugator, and then popped up on the die cut tag. For the tissue, I stamped the star in deep red, and the trees in dark green, and the sentiment again randomly. This would be so easy to make "conveyor belt-style" for multiples, and hand-crafted gift bags, tags, boxes, etc. really let the recipient know that you care enough to REALLY give the very best. Happy wrapping!
