Kraft Gift Bag

So did you see the new Here Comes Christmas CD launch on Create & Craft at the weekend? What did you think? I have to say I loved this CD the minute I saw it, so many characters and in excess of 500 papers (yes you are reading correctly 500 papers!!!). My only problem was what to make first! However, as the turnaround time was again fairly tight I decided to stick to fairly quick and easy makes like this bag.

This is a plain old Kraft bag that I picked up in The Range for 50p. I've simply printed out papers and images from the CD to decorate it with. The scalloped border has been free-hand cut - expect to see more of this from me as I love the primitive look it gives. I've got a couple more of these that I'm going to alter and I'm really hoping that I can find a few more as they are really strong and fairly big. However, I suspect that I will be out of luck as I purchased them sometime ago!
