Sistas Scrap Too Christmas & Countdown to the New Year Blog Hop

Christmas is coming and so is the New Year! To get you in the spirit of the season, the divas of SST have come together for a Christmas and Countdown to the New Year blog hop! There are 17 blogs in the hop, so make sure you use the links below this post to hop to all of the participating blogs. No worries if you miss one, you can always go back! These 17 divas have a lot in store for you. From exquisite creations to offers of blog candy, you will enjoy hopping your way to all of the blogs involved! Don't forget to leave some blog love for the creators -- they love getting feedback on their designs!




Christmas Gift Bags
I made these simple holiday gift bags using plain brown lunch bags. Inspiration for this project was found on www.okieladybugsscrapnmore.blogspot.com, she also included a video tutorial. I just used miscellaneous sheets of paper, paper scraps, along with other embellishments. Since I used pattern paper I decided not to use a lot of other embellishments. I did use ribbon, bling, buttons, stickles, floss and the cuttlebug on one of the bags along with punches for the handle holes. This is a quick and economical ways to personalize your gift bags not just for Christmas but anytime!



Gift Tag
My original intent was to make individual gift tags for the bags but I decided instead to just create one large holiday gift tag. I cut the tag using TBBM using the cricut and acetate (packaging from cricut cartridges). I colored the tag with alcohol ink and embellished it and added some ribbon.
