12 Days of Christmas - Day 11!

Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing this project over on the Waltzingmouse Inspiration blog as well.  I love begin a part of the WMS design team!  The inspiration blog is new and the DT are posting new creations nearly daily and there is some fabby inspiration out there!  :)

We are going to visit my folks for Christmas and will be spending a lot of time sharing Amelia with family.  While we are taking an easy route for gifts this year due to the new baby (gift cards and Harry & David!), I figure I can gussy things up a bit with some handmade packaging!

I started off with a medium sized kraft gift bag and ran a length of burlap ribbon down the center.  I took a journaling card and stamped it with one of the sentiments from Seasonal Remedies.  I then used the fabby new dies for the sprig and pinecones from Festive Foliage and added them to the bag.  I finished with a few sequins and a twine bow.  Simple, rustic, and perfect for a guy or girl gift!

Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for visiting!  Here are the rest of the ladies who are participating in this fun blog event - I hope you have a chance to visit them!
