Never too early…

Christmas is a word feared my many, but in the crafting world it is used all year round, sometimes there is not even much point in putting your Christmas crafts away in a dark hidden corner, because there is only around a 4 month ‘down’ period. But when Christmas images are as cute as this one I don’t mind really 🙂

This weeks Polkadoodles theme is Christmas but not a card. That is 100% up my street, I love making bags, home decor pieces and gifts 🙂 I decided to make a handbag style gift bag this time 🙂

I used red card to make the base of the bag and green to make the top flap over the bag. I covered these with the papers from and left a small neat border around.

I decided to use the Christmas Stamp from which is possibly the cutest image I’ve ever seen, as the join from bag base to top/flap. I have coloured them in with my alcohol markers.

I wanted a handle on the bag, I decided to add some lovely ribbon, a few sparkly gems and a twine wrapped bow. Then to finish off the bag, I added a couple of gift tags from

I hope you like it.
