Holiday Gift Bag

I saw a gift bag on page 7 of the new Holiday Catalog and I wanted to make some of my own.  They are really quick to make using the new 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch.
I purchased the white gift bag at a local craft store, and punched my scallop circles with Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso Card Stock and some Snow Festival and Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper. A few additional stamped images were punched and placed on my Whisper White Cardstock. I added them to the bag after I cut a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock and placed it on the bag for my tree trunk.   I added some retired buttons that I purchased on the Clearance Rack, and for the gift tag on the top I punched some DSP with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch and a Gumball Green circle with the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch to add my to:  and  from: sentiment.  This was tied to the bag with some Gumball Green 1/4" Sweater Trim.
Add some colorful tissue paper and you have a great bag ready to go for the special present, and by  making your own you can save a lot of money too.
