Christmas Wrapping

I have decided to make a little more effort with my Christmas Wrapping this year and have decorated a gift bag for my Mother-in-Law.


I bought some really posh wrapping paper sets in the sales at the beginning of the year and have used some of the paper to wrap the present, I have used what was left to decorate the bag.


I die cut some borders with a die from Sue Wilson's New York collection and added a bow made from some ribbon that was included in the wrapping paper set.

I would like to enter my gift bag into the following challenges:

Jellypark Friends Challenge - Ribbons and/or Bows
Always Something Creative Challenge 88 - Christmas
Eclectic Ellapu Purple Challenge - Christmas but not a card
Seemacrafts December Challenge - Christmas
All Crafts Challenge Dec/Jan  - Anything but a Card
Craft-Dee BowZ December Challenge - Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment, your company is much appreciated.
