Santa Gnome gift bags

Hi friends! Well, tomorrow night is THE night… the night that jolly St. Nick will be here! Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in this morning to share a couple large gift bags decorated with Bearly Art Santa Gnome cut files. If you have an electronic die cutting machine and you’ve never seen their cut files, you need to check them out! They’ve got some really cute ones! Ed and I joined a large group of friends this past Sunday for a delicious Christmas meal (pasta bar, salad, garlic bread and dessert) and a delightful White Elephant game. We took our White Elephant gifts in large gift bags that I decorated with these adorable Santa Gnomes. They were a hit, as you can imagine!

I cut all the pieces from CutCardStock Basis Black, Basis Blue, Basis Green, Basis Soft Pink, Gold Glitter, Silver Glitter cardstockNeenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, Colorbok Red cardstock. I assembled the Gnome Santas and adhered them to the large gift bags. Using the Tim Holtz Idea-ology type lower cling foam stamps, I stamped ‘merry christmas’ in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink on the white bag and in StazOn Cotton White ink on the black bag. I LOVE foam stamps and I only have two sets (both are Tim’s) and they stamp with such an awesome impression, the first time! Of course, it helps to have juicy ink pads! ;) I love how these turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. Your gift bags are such fun, thanks for sharing another entry with us at River of Creativity (afraid your blog won’t recognise my sign in so shows me as coming from Allsorts challenge – with another hat on!)
