Wrap It Up Challenge

Hello everyone!  Ready to start some holiday scrapping?  How about holiday decorating?  Or maybe creative ways to gift wrap?  Over at Scrap It Girl....we have a perfect challenge for the month of December--it's our Wrap It Up's all about gift wrapping.....whether it's a present on a LO or home decor/altered project, or homemade gift wrap or bags, it's time to wrap up those holiday crafts, and link them up on the Scrap It Girl site HERE

To get you started with a little inspiration, here is a gift bag/tag set I've created using the Doodlebug Frosty Friends collection:

This is something I love to do....take an inexpensive dollar store plain white bag, and use those extra scraps and embellishments from a scrapbook page to create a one of a kind gift bag that is a gift itself!  It's a great way to use up those odds and ends from different projects......six different manufacturers on this one!!

Here's a closer look at the gift tag:

I used a Tim Holtz stencil pounced on white cardstock using Salty Ocean Distress Ink and a Distress Ink sponge. Silver American Crafts glitter paper give it some sparkle, and a Doodlebug mini clothes pin, twine, and Sprinkles add a sweet touch.

For the sentiment, I used a Prima stamp:

The snowflakes are punched out of the glitter paper, and Queen & Co bling adds some pizazz. The feather is a wispy winter touch....from Bella Blvd.

And did I mention a prize?  Yes there is a prize over on the Scrap It Girl have a chance to win if you link up!!  Check out all the rules and links on THIS POST.

Thanks for stoppin' by today and join in on the challenge!  Instead of a plain (or expensive!) gift bag....make your own with your scraps and a few extra embellishments!
