The challenge this week is brought to us by Clare of Miscanthus Crafts. She gave us a formula based on "The Ghost of Christmas Present" -
1. As white as a ghost
2. A present
3. A bow or knot
4. A touch of traditional Christmas colors
White - check
Present - check
Bow - check, check
Traditional Christmas colors - check
Who says that a present has to come in a box? The stamped gift bag is from the Hostess Set Birthday Bakery. The stamp has a heart where my little bow is, I just didn't ink that up with my marker. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. Those dots on the bag are colored red and green - kind of hard to see in the photo as is. Click it and it should get bigger.
I added the red cotton string handles to the bag along with the bow. The plaid ribbon was gathered with a running stitch and adhered to the back of the embossed polka dot panel.
Thanks for a great challenge Clare! Want to see the rest? Click here.
