FWF-A Christmas goodie bag and tag....

Hi there! Happy Friday.  Last night, it was a cold, rainy, blustery kind of fall night, so I busted out some of my ippity stamps and came up with the goodie bag and matching tag above.  I love to have lots of little things like this ready to go for the holidays.  It is perfect for adding a small gift or some homemade cookies and candies.

I know I have shown my little goodie bags before, but for those who may be new, I just used an oval punch to punch a handle into the paper sack.  Easy peasy!!!  I stamped the large and small snowflake from Gingham Christmas Greetings in Fired Brick distress ink onto the front and back of the paper sack.  I used the same snowflakes and the emboss resist technique on my tag.  After the clear embossing cooled, I sponged some Antique Linen distress ink over the entire tag.  The edges are inked with Walnut Stain ink for contrast.  I used two of the little pennants from The Best set, and on the smaller pennant added some clear Tiny Type Cosmo letters.  The felt star and the vintage button are from my stash and I used some glossy accents to draw my flourish and added some copper micro glitter from PK Glitz.  I hung my tag with some seam binding and a burlap string bow.

If you are loving the ippity I used on this project, you can buy some from my friend Noelle. She has great prices, free shipping and free twine with every order!!!!!

edit:  I buy these mini lunch bags at Hobby Lobby.  They come 10 to a pack and are found in the aisle with all of the envelopes, tags, ATC's and what nots. HTH!

Thanks for stopping by today!
