Using Dies to Dress Up Gift Bags in a Jiffy

Okay, the crunch is really on, but these bags only require a few minutes of crafting because of the fabulous dies available at HM Ben Franklin Crafts.  This winter village scene bag was pretty but not unique so I added two iridescent vellum panels of die cut snowflakes (Sizzix). A piece of frosty mini garland was used to tie the panels shut. The 'Winter Wishes' ( Sizzix) were die cut from silver foil DCWV paper        
When the panels are untied, the wintery village scene can be viewed.
Here is the same bag with a die cut (Ionic) gold foil deer and the 'Winter Wishes' cut from Paper Arts glitter paper. The Ionic reindeer has fancy antlers and an embossed body which make him very handsome. I made his collar from a mini holly garland (Darice) that I purchased at BFC.
 These are the dies that I used to fancy up these bags. It was easy and fun....give it a have two more days, so craft like a crazed elf! LOL!

I never thought of dressing up a gift bag but your dies really did dress it up and added a personal touch of elegance. I like what you did, Lynn! Happy Holidays to you and your family!
