Oh Christmas Tree

Today's project is a very Christmas-y gift bag.

The bag is from the "Once Upon a Princess" cartridge.  It is on page 65 of the handbook.  I cut it at 6.95"x11.52."  This is as large as I could cut it and still fit on a 12"x12" mat.  When it is all assembled it stands 4 11/16" tall.  I used card stock from the DCWV Evergreen Stack for the bag.  I used some ribbon I found in my stash to make the handles of my bag.

The snow at the bottom of the bag is hand cut from white card stock.  I then covered it in white glitter.  The tree is from "Winter Frolic," page 50 of the handbook.  It was cut at 4."  I covered the ornaments in Stickles, lime green and holly.  I also added a gem to the center of the bow.  The base of the tree was adhered with glue, but the rest of it is popped up on foam tape.

I used an ornament from "Holiday Cakes" to create my tag.  The image is on page 46 of the handbook and is actually supposed to be three ornaments.  I hid all the contours except the one ornament I wanted to use for my tag.  It was cut at 2.63."  I added some lime Stickles to the center star part of the ornament.

I made this for the following challenges:

BBTB2: ornament
Fantabulous Cricut: anything goes
CARDZ TV: create a gift bag
