Bag It

This little snow woman is made from one of those unfinished wooden cut outs. I papered it in a cute cream colored paper. I like the distressed look for Christmas. But I also love glitter. In this day and age you can mix anything, so she is a bit of both. I wish I could wear a hat like that, but I am not a hat person. I would like to be, just not a good look for me. However, she wears it well.
I bought these bags last year at an "After Christmas Sale". They were 10 for $1.00. I bought 20. I am amazed I found them and I wonder why I only bought 20. Most likely, I did not want to look at another green or red thing. There is that certain point when you say no more!!! I just stamped a border on the bottom. I love the border stamp and the white ink. I have to find more things to do with them.

This owl looks very intense, okay he looks a little mean spirited. But I have a difficult time tossing a project, even it is this small. There is an e at the end of the word celebrate, I did not notice it until after I posted the picture.

I love that Christmas owl! Not a bird normally associated with Christmas, but with your creative flair, he looks like Mr. Christmas!

Denise, you are the hardest working, most productive crafter I know. Under your Christmas tree will be oh-so-decorative this year.

I just love those bags! That stamping, you did, looks so elegant. Wonder why I've never thought of that????

I'm with you, I wish I were a hat person, too. I do wear baseball caps, sometimes, when I'm outside for a while.....

Blessings,
Julie
