Bag It


Is it already Christmas????  That's exactly what Jim asked me this afternoon when I was taking a picture of this!   Geeze!!!!  Well........no, it's not here yet but will be here before we know it! 

I got this Lawn Fawn die last year right before Christmas and ended up making about 15 gift card holders.  It's a perfect size gift bag and they were quick to make.  Of course I waited until the last minute to do them so figured I'd better start early this year.

Santa Daniel, from Deedee's Digi, made this into quick little gift card holder since I used the pre-colored version. The set also includes several different images and some sentiments - and they come in colored or line version that you can color yourself.  I used a stitched circle die, some sequins, and added a little Wink of Stella to the image.  One gift card holder down and only about 14 to go now!

Deedee's Digis are so fun to work with and you'll find cute images in her shop.  There is also a progressive challenge going on each month.  Check it out!

Thanks for stopping by........
Lynn

This really is adorable, Lynn, and I'm glad it isn't any closer to Christmas than it is. I just can't get motivated to do anything Christmas-y yet. Maybe if I keep seeing what everyone else is doing...??

Fabulous project Lynn - love that image. You are so organised - we are in the middle of the birthday rush (birthdays every three weeks) at the moment so i am far from thinking of Christmas.
