A Holiday Bag

Hi everyone

Thanks for stopping in today.

I have a great idea for you and this can done for anytime of the year, not just for the holidays.
Since CDB designers have a theme for December - Bags or Boxes, 
 I thought I'd decorate a plain bag and make it festive for the Christmas giving season.

 Our sponsor for December is:

is proud to sponsor this challenge.

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More, a division of I Did It Creations, was created and is
owned by Robyn Weinrib. Robyn offers a wonderful variety of digital stamps and digital papers, designed to meet the needs of all digital paper crafting addicts for every occasion.
The December winner will receive - Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps And More is happy to award 3 digital stamps of the winner’s choice to the winner of this challenge.

I used a beautiful poinsettia image from Robins Fetish, called Prissy Poinsettia

Here is my bag all prettied up
Here is a closer view of the poinsettia image
To get this layered look, I printed out 4 images and colored them and fussy cut them out. 
I cut another set of leaves and mounted them on top of the main image. Next I did the same thing, cut out the smaller leaves on the top area of the image. I mounted those on the top. 
BTW I used dimensional foam to raise the leaves up on each of the layers 
For the center clusters, I used yellow flat back pearls. 
I added some colored flat backed pearls to the berry spots on the image.

For all poinsettia aficionados, what we see and call leaves, those are actually known as bracts.

Here is a close up of the bow.

I used my handy dandy Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool to make that bow.
This sheer ribbon is a dream to work with and is easy to manipulate to
get those loops exactly where you want them to lay.

Need one for yourself or for a gift, order one here (go to the left sidebar and order thru PayPal)
