Large Christmas Gift Bag


Welcome to new readers who have joined me on this first Simply Stylish Stampers blog hop. We are a great team and all of us are very creative and so Stylish!

My name is Gez and I am Nigezza Creates I post 2 videos a week and write a blog to accompany them. Please feel free to head back here to look at my other projects after you have finished this blog blog hop.

I have crafted all my life and love doing memory keeping, card making as well as gift backs and boxes.  Christmas is my busiest time as I make all my cards and love to make the packaging of my presents really special.  My house is also decorated with many of my homemade decorations.  I joined Stampin Up in January this year and I just love sharing my projects through this Blog, my Facebook page, Instagram and my YouTube channel.  Thank you for visiting today and I hope you comeback and visit again soon.

I was so excited to receive my pre-order from the new Autumn Winter catalogue.  I really wanted to make a large gift bag.  I bought the brown paper lunch bags from the Pound Shop - I got 10 bags for £1 so they are very cheap.

To decorate I used:
Whisper White card stock 4x4 and 6 x 4 1/4
Basic Black card stock 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 and 2 x 2

DSP from the new Christmas DSP - Merry Little Christmas
2 pieces measuring 6 x 2 1/2
2 pieces measuring 6 x 5

I also used:
The new snow flake embossing folder Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
The snow flake from Trim Your Stocking Thinlit Dies
The snow flake border from Swirly Snowflakes Thinlit Dies
The sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments 

Small piece of Whisper White sheer ribbon
Tag made from Kraft Card 2 x 3 1/2
Tag Topper punch

I think you will agree this is a stunning gift bag and a very good size too.

I hope you have enjoyed this project.
