For Those Last Minute Gifts

Hello, my friends! 

I'm back with a new project made with products from the Cards and More Shop .

Today I want to share a last minute gift idea,
it's also a great way to use up some of your favorite scraps.

Over this past year I have shared numerous projects 
using the wonderful Maja Design Vintage Frost papers.
I am down to the smallest scraps but am finding ways to use them up.

This project would be lovely for those last minute gifts.
Sometimes you just don't know what to get for some people.
That is usually when you resort to buying gift cards.
These little decorative bags would be ideal packaging for these cards.
I made my bag using the Tim Holtz In the Bag die but there are many other options available.

You can even make one yourself!
These particular bags measure 3" x 4" x 3/4".

Here they for him and one for her:

Here's the one for her.
I used a scrap of the pretty paper, keeping the branding strip along the bottom.
I tool and ink distressed the edges, and adhered it to the bag.
I added a pretty trim across the top.
Then I fussy cut the little angel embellishment out,
inked the edges, and adhered it in place.

Here's the one for him.
Again, I chose a paper, and tool and ink distressed the edges.
I wrapped some twine around it and tied a bow.
I fussy cut the sweet Santa embellishment, inked the edges,
and adhered it in place.

Here are some close-up photos:

One final look.
I kept the backs of the bags plain so that a message can be added.

These were the products used from the Cards and More Shop :

Gorgeous, I love the vintagey look! (It so needs to be a real word, so I am using it regardless - lol) Makes me want to have a go at some slightly different styles of cards, these are great.
