the perfect little home for one of our annual Christmas jams. (This year's version was recently made and perfected and let me just say... I give it 4 stars. On a 4 star scale. Or 5 stars on a 5 star scale. Whatever. It's good. But that's a post for another day...)
I don't know what it is about Christmas paper, but I don't tend to have a lot of it. So when thinking about this project, I decided to go totally off the beaten path and use a St.Patrick's themed collection (Lucky Me by Little Yellow Bicycle).
I thought the green patterned paper with the blue metallic accent strip would make for a sort of a ready made accent. I just trimmed off the word "Lucky" and the shamrock at the bottom and ta da... looks Christmas enough for me!
I used a little journaling tag to make a coordinating "card" to go inside the bag. I trimmed the bag down just enough so that the little pull tag sticks up... cute. Saves me the step of making an entire card, too. Love it.
