Christmas Holiday Blog Hop with Paper Sweeties

Welcome to Paper Sweeties Christmas Countdown!  Lots of fun and inspiration to be had.  Thank you for asking me to be a part of it, Debbie!

Check out the Paper Sweeties Blog for all the blog links and daily specials.  You'll be glad you did!


Homespun Holidays is one of my favorite stamp sets.  A few years ago, I made a cute shrinky-dink charm with the reindeer.  You can see it HERE.  (Ignore those blurry pictures!)

Homespun Holidays is absolutely perfect for creating a tag for this pretty plaid bag.

I picked up what I thought were plaid Christmas dish towels from Target.   When I got home, I saw they were marked "placemats".  I guess they could be used for either one.  It doesn't matter, I had another idea in mind, anyway!  

I folded it in half lengthwise and cut off a section with pinking shears.  Then I just sewed each side.  Quick and easy bag!   Fill it up and tie a bow around it.  And add that cute reindeer tag, of course!

Next up is this sweet little snow girl - isn't her outfit cute?  The background is batting that I had left over from some project long ago.  I love the sentiment:  You Melt My Heart.

Let's go check out the daily special at Paper Sweeties...
