Noel Gift Bag for Christmas Gift Giving

Hello everyone!  I am still in a Christmas mood and have yet another Christmas adorned gift bag to share with you.  Today's bag was created with a plain red gift bag purchased at a craft store and the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge!

The gift bag was measured and then Cricut Craft Room was used to size the cuts.  All of the cuts used are from the Artiste cartridge.    Using solid white cardstock I cut the snowflake borders and snowflake centers and the word NOEL.  Using solid pink cardstock the snowflake shadow cuts were created.  Using liquid glue the layers affixed together and the large snowflake, the top edge border and the word NOEL were glued to the bag front.

I used a bit of white ribbon to attach the to/from snowflake to the handle of the bag.  I then finished the bag by adding gems to the embellish the cuts. 


I will be hosting a series of Christmas card making workshops over the next few weeks. The cost of the workshops will be $15 to make 10 Christmas cards to take home with you. All of the materials will be supplied as well as instructions for creating your cards.

I will be posting card samples and you can order the cards you would like to make in sets of 5 cards each. You may make 2 sets of 5 cards for the $15 class cost. Of course if you would like to create additional cards, you may order two sets of ten, up to four designs.

The Christmas Card workshops will be held at my home on:

Saturday, October 13th at 10:00 am

Thursday, October 18th at 6:30 pm (evening class)

Saturday, November 10th at 10:00 am

Further information and sample cards will be posted by the end of the week. If you are interested in attending a workshop please email me at and I will reserve a seat for you.
