Holiday Gift Bags

My roofing tin wall hangings for my coworkers are all finished and packaged up to give away tomorrow. I wrapped them in tissue and put them in small kraft gift bags that I had ordered from Oriental Trading Company.

To decorate the plain bags, I used hot glue to attach bows to the jingle bell ornaments.  

For the rosettes,  I used the Cricut Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge.  I used my Gypsy to weld three of the main images and then hid the scoring marks (I prefer not to have them showing).  It took two of these welded sections to make each rosette.  I hot glued the rosettes to scalloped circles cut with My Creative Time's Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies.  This held the rosettes together, and allowed me a spot to add a cute sentiment from MCT's All Around Christmas stamp set.  

On the back of the rosette, I used MCT's Classmate Valentines stamp set for the "To" and "From".

For my coworkers that don't celebrate Christmas, I went with more of a winter theme.
