Merry and Bright Christmas Tree treat bag.



This is another project that I made using the Merry and Bright cartridge. The coolest part of this cut is you can make it into a treat bag like I did or you can use acetate and turn it into a luminary. I would recommend using one of those battery powered candles though. 

Since I decided to make this into a treat bag, I used a punch at the top of the bag. Then I was able to tread ribbon in the holes, so that the bad could be closed. 

The tag on this bag is from the same cartridge. If you cut this tag any smaller I would use the 'hide contour' tool in the CCR, so can not cut out the 'to' and 'from' portion. Instead I would use a stamp.
