Joyeux Noel Gift Bag

Merry Christmas everyone! Today I’m guest posting for A Jillian Vance Design, (they gave me the stamps to use) and I’m so excited to share this little gift bag! While it is a small bag, about 4 x 5″, it has plenty of space to hold good things! It would be perfect for gift cards, jewelry boxes, or candy!

Joyeux Noel gift Bag by Beth PingryI used a pre-cut tag, and stamped the little corner doily from the Daily Doilies Stamp and Die set, heat embossed with silver EP. I love how the intricate detail of the stamp shows when embossed!  I stamped Joyeux Noel, from The Holiday Zipper set. I actually cut the two words apart and aligned them on the acrylic block. The line of glitter is 3D Foam Tape. I tied it to the bag with some ribbon from my stash.

For the bag decor, I stamped, embossed and die cut the largest of the Daily Doilies and then cut it in half and adhered it to the top edge of the bag. If you wanted to seal the bag shut, you could use the complete doily folded over and adhered at the top.

It was quick and easy, yet sparkly and elegant! The only problem now is, I love it so much I don’t want to give it away!

Thanks for coming by today, and have a wonderful holiday!

I made a Paris themed canvas. I cannibalized a 5×7″ canvas…for the third time, it still had remnants of the first project stuck to the center. No problem, I just painted over it, and I think the mystery texture adds something! Then I added Glimmer Mists to create background color.
