It's beginning to look a lot like....

Christmas! I cannot believe how fast the holidays are sneaking up on us! I am just not ready for it to come!!
Luckily- today's Stamp Simply challenge is about wrapping it up! To get you a head start on some wrapping ideas for gift giving. I went with a truly simple "genie" gift bag-




I used Unity's Embellished Season and some basic grey paper. I thought with the gold card stock (which is *really* hard to photograph btw!!!) it would be best to keep it clean and uncluttered-


*ETA- SORRY!!!

You can find this project in an upcoming CardMaker Magazine!!


Here is a closeup of the ornament- I colored in the stars with a sakura gelly roll pen- love the sparkle it adds.
I added a few poinsettias to the ends of the ribbons- I colored the white ribbon with my copic to make it green.
I plan on making a bunch of these and throwing some cards and envies inside to make Christmas gifts.
make sure to upload using keyword ssnotime114 and here are the rest-

Pin It Now!

Very pretty. I like how you did the trim on the striped strip and the addition of the poinsettias on the ends of the ribbon.
