Santa gift/treat bag made using the Tags, Bags, Boxes, and more cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a box made using the Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More cartridge, Winter Woodland cartridge, and a 12" x 24" mat. I actually came up with the idea of this while trying to sleep. Sometimes my mind just goes crazy with project ideas while I am supposed to be sleeping!

First, I cut the bag using a 12 x 24 mat using ProvoCraft 12 x 24 paper. I just want to say that if you have this cartridge, I think the 12 x 24 mat is a must. I like making the bags as big as possible. This bag stands about 8" tall, so it is a nice size.

I cut it at 11 1/2" using my tags, bags, boxes, and more cartridge(page 131). The 'buckle' was cut using Winter Woodland (page 34) using the shadow feature. Then using my DS I put the square(base + shift) smack dab in the middle of the cut. This made the scalloped square more like a buckle. I then stamped it with a stamp from the Vintage Christmas set by Waltzing Mouse. Then I added a few little plastic holly leaves I got from Hobby Lobby in the holiday section.

The tag was cut using the Winter Woodland cartridge using the cut on page 44 in your handbook at 4". Then I trimmed a square piece of paper to go in the center and adhered it to the tag. 'Santa' was cut using Don Juan at 3/4". 'Cookies' was cut using From My Kitchen at 1". The actual cookie was cut fromt he same cartridge at 2".

The ribbon handle was just made using the slot punk and ribbon from SU!. The paper used for the tag is from the Christmas Imaginisce line called 'Polar Expressions'.
