MAGENTA STAMP -- Large Poinsettia
From the Penny Black blog . . . (I think the 'patterned paper' are the papers from My Mind's Eye Christmas Lost & Found collection). I've seen this stamp in our Penny Black catalog; this card design deserves to be delivered to your best 'fashionista' friend!

Back to prepping for my 12 Days of Christmas book class on Sunday afternoon. There are a couple of openings if you'd like to sign up. All of the page trimming will be done for you because I want you to focus your time on making your doors and embellishing the book the way you want to. The papers are from Webster's Pages Botanical Christmas collection.

To kick things off, we are going to teach you how to make a basic gift bag, inspired by a past club kit project. Making your own gift bag can save you money. Use the concept in any size you want for a custom fit. Gift bags are perfect for odd-shaped items. All you need it two pieces of paper, some ribbon, and embellishments.
1. Score in 1 1/2” on the bottom & sides of (2) 12” x 12” pieces of paper (one for the front of the bag and one for the back)
3. Use decorative scissors along the top edge of each sheet
4. Nest the two halves inside one another to form a bag & secure with adhesive
5. Punch holes & thread ribbon to make a handle
6. Embellish as desired
