SIMPLE GIFT BAG... and the winner is...

First off let me show you a quick simple gift bag idea.
This time of year I find wrapping (presents that is, not singing) !! a complete pain, so many things don't come in boxes now, that would make it oh so much easier, but no !!!
So I often go for the simple gift bag, but sometimes it just needs a little jazz up.
It's one of my friends birthday real soon and I know she likes simple things but a bit blingy!!, so I just got a rather inexpensive silver bag (no offence Adrienne) !!
Used the back end of a paint brush to etch a design onto it, in this case a heart
Then just add bling and some yummy tulle and ribbons !!!

Just want to say thank you for all the comments from the last post, all the names were put into a draw ....... AND THE WINNER IS..... Jaki, well done, can you get in touch to give me your details please :) :) 
It seems a LOT of you like the simple style, so here's a couple more very quick and simple crimbo cards.
This first one is using the lovely Paula Pascual Stamps - Joyful Bubbles - love these !!!
I've combined this with another of my favourites and that's small square kraft cards.
Then last but not least is this little simple one using a christmas embossing folder and adding some yummy Martha Snowflakes, obviously with a bit of bling in the centre. Note how I added the snowflakes first then embossed !!
So that's it for today, congrats Jaki and remember - keep christmas simple !!
Hugs
