Santa Gift Bag


I can't believe that Christmas is coming so quickly! This week will be crazy for me as I'm working full time and also have a set of papers coming in from my part-time teaching job. I've got a number of students who submitted early so I've been grading papers as they come in - but I want everything finished up as soon as possible. My goal is to have everything done by the weekend so I can enjoy the holidays. I've taken next week (Monday to Wednesday) off and the college is closed until January 5 so I'm ecstatic to have two full weeks with my family. My daughter will be home on Sunday too and I can't wait to have the family all together again.



This week at My Craft Spot, our challenge is "Bags and Boxes". I found a fun little Santa gift bag at the Silhouette Store (#52102) and decided it would be great for a gift card and a little something sweet. 



Before assembling the box, I embossed the white and red cardstock with a few different embossing folders. I then cut a tag from the Tiny Banners and Toppers metal dies and stamped it with a "From the North Pole" sentiment from the Tiny Tags Christmas stamp set.



I finished everything off with a triple bow created with Traditional Red baker's twine.

Please head over to My Craft Spot to see the rest of the "Bags and Boxes" creations and to link up your own project for your chance to win this week's prize of a gift certificate to the My Craft Spot Shop. Don't forget about the 12 Deals of Christmas fun over at My Craft Spot too! Now's the time to give Santa a hand in getting you the supplies you've been wanting! 

 
Each day until Christmas Eve (excluding Sundays), Kimberly will post a new 'deal of the day' for you to 'unwrap' - with something new each day!
