Poinsettia Gift Bag

Hello friends,

Something slightly different today - a gift bag.  
This is made from a sealed envelope, I have done a video tutorial on this technique which can be found in this blog post here or the video can be located on my 'You Tube' tab just under my blog banner.  
I've used Layered Poinsettia (just the one and it's mini!) 
Lace Doily Accents (folded in half to make a seal for the gift bag) and the red strip along the bottom. 
To finish, Labels Twenty Two for the stamped tag and a tiny peg with a gem stone.
The size and shape of your gift bag depends on your envelope but it's great for small gifts like...chocolate!

I've been Christmas shopping, made a dent in the gift list and I have a new star for my tree! 
 It's really beginning to feel a lot like Christmas (feel free to sing the lyrics!) ...and I love it!
Pop by tomorrow - I'll be here with another project to show you.
Thank you friends for visiting, truly appreciate you all.

Hi Christine, well I really like this idea. Such a lovely bag to present homemade fudge or even Welsh cakes in (I'm Welsh as you can tell). I two sets of the dies you have used but not the poinsettia as yet. However, I can substitute that with one of the other flower dies.
Thanks for two days of very useful inspiration that seems directly aimed at me! lol..
Loads love Linda

The bag is lovely Christine, the poinsetta really is very versatile. Also love the star for the tree - a bit too high up for Bella? Regards, Anne Rx
