25 Days of Christmas - Elf Gift Bag

I have yet another gift bag for you today.  However, this one is slightly different because I did not use either my Cricut or the Silhouette to create it.

I started with a plain white gift bag.  I cut some dark green card stock at 5 1/2"x4," some red card stock at 5 1/4"x3 3/4," and some white card stock at 5"x3 1/2."  I stamped the elf on the white card stock.  It is from the November 2012 Stamp of the Month Kit by Peachy Keen.  I colored it in using markers, nothing special.  The banner and sentiment are both from the December 2012 Stamp of the Month Kit by Peachy Keen.

The tag is also from Peachy Keen, the November 2012 Stamp of the Month Kit.  I trimmed some light green card stock around it to give it a shadow.  The to and from are both from the "Merry Christmas" stamp set by My Craft Spot.  I tied it to the bag with some peapod baker's twine by The Twinery.

I made this for the current photo inspiration challenge at Peachy Keen.  I took the traditional red and green colors from the color palette to inspire my creation.
