Can't get enough of the gift bags!!!

Hi Stampers!

Today is the last day of the RemARKable Last Minute Holiday Blog Tour - it has been a fun tour of amazing ideas!! I am sticking with my gift packaging theme for you for the last day.

I absolutely love the treat boxes by Stampin' Up!. If you didn't know about them....the chocolate chip/close to cocoa bag/box is a Stampin' Up! item. It is beautiful in itself, I think. They are very heavy and the shiny exterior on them makes them top notch. Not to mention that they are totally food safe. Did you know that alot of paper containers aren't actually approved to hold food items without being wrapped in something else before?? Well....not these babies - they are approved food safe. How awesome is that??
This was super easy to put together! I started by cutting out a Stampin' Up! exclusive die, Tulip Die, in real red. I adhered it o the front of the bag, leaving off the bottom upside down tulip image. Doesn't it really add beauty to the bag? I thought so. I then created a simple tag by stamping the sentiment image, from the level two hostess set Christmas Punch in real red. I punched it with my wide oval punch. I then took the three snowflake image and stamped it in close to cocoa and punched it with the boho blossom punch. I absolutely love that the entire set coordinates with our punches!!! I tied on a piece of gold elastic cord to the tag and threaded it onto a piece of real red polka dot grosgrain ribbon.

"Where are the polka dots?" you ask????? side has polka dots and the other side doesn't!! Isn't this ribbon beautiful??? And if you want a more whimsical look....use the other side that has polka dots.

Thank you for stopping by my humble piece of the blog world....I hope to see you back again.

It is now time to scoot on over to Deann's blog to continue your ride....
