Christmas Gift Bag

Hi there everyone,

We are so close now till the man in red arrives, I know I have 3 little excited boys in my house that are counting down the hours!!

So here is something a little festive for you.

I had this brown paper bag in my pile of "things to be altered" so I decided to create a sweet little Christmas gift bag using lots of pretties from the Flying Unicorn Store.

I started off using some music sheet paper which I had in my stash and then I placed stripes of layers using Websters Paper A Christmas Story range as well as some gorgeous lace.  I then scrapped some Gesso over the top using an old credit card.

Next I added some plasters mesh and then randomly sprayed some 13 Arts Chalk Mist in Light Blue
Oh I love this gorgeous effect. So full of texture!

Now I pile on more paper layers and lots of pretty flowers and chipboard. I have layered 2 different frames both from Leaky Shed Studios. A beautiful mix of Prima and Petaloo flowers...those red flowers are seriously gorgeous!

The bauble chipboard is from 2Crafty and I have used Tickle Me Turquoise from Shimmerz to altered as well as some glitter.

Finished it off by scattering some chipboard stars and sequences.

 Hope you like my little gift bag...its so gorgeous I am not sure I want to give it away now...lol!
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, see you all in 2015!
