Bah Humbug - Challenge 45 - Bags & Boxes

This week's challenge over at Bah! Humbug! is Bags and Boxes and I must admit I was thinking "oh, that's good - we made these at our recent Stampin Up day"!!!!!  Then I thought better about it...............  I have added a couple of photos of a brown kraft bag and clear pail that we made on our day but they are at the bottom of this post.  I decided to make a Scallop Bag and started off with a piece of cardstock measuring 10" x 4" and made it into a basic box.  I then die cut scallops using my nesties; firstly in red card, then gold mirri, then b/p from my stash.  I glued these together for the back and front of the box and scored the bottom of both to give me six scallops which would fold under the box.  I used my Crop-a-Dile to add some eyelets for the ribbon which is red rickrack.  The poinsettia on the front of the box is a die from Cottage Cutz and is called Ornate Poinsettia.  Must admit that after I'd put it on I thought it overwhelmed the bag a bit but had already stuck it down!

Here are the photos of the bag and pail full of Christmas tags that we recently made at our Stampin Up Extravaganza workshop.  The insert in the photo of the pail shows the top of it with it's embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by.
