leaves and berries on bag (WPlus9, MIM, Simply Create Too)

Thrilled to hear that DD is looking forward to baking Christmas cookies with me this year (there are some perks to getting old-er!) I decided that our neighbor presents are going to be bags of cookies again.  You may recall that last year the angels had the floor.


Well nothing like the perfect inspiration to be found in these three challenges to get me on my feet and running in the prep for this year's present.

WPlus9 - Monday Mood Board #24
Papertrey - Make it Monday #142 Decorate Kraft Bags
Simply Create Too - #51 Snow or all white

Here's my creation (times six):


The elements?  A kraft bag, red ribbon, snowflakes (thanks to PTI Stylish Snowflakes), a round tag, green leaves, red berries (thanks to PTI Irresistibly Ikat) and what you can't really see is the horizontal woodgrain I created for my tag using Lydia F.'s tutorial.  The whitewashed wood in the Mood Board was actually the first thing to catch my eye.

Now... when to start baking?  Happy Sunday.


Supplies for kraft bag:
Paper: cream CS Bringmann, green CS DCWV
Stamps:   ikst and snowflakes PTI, sentiment WPlus9
Ink : white pigment Adirondack, red and gray Jenny Bowlin, Versafine
Tools: circle die MFT, leaf die WPlus9
Other: bag, sequins, ribbon
