Baaaag -a - lope

Afternoon Folks!
Hope you're all OK and keeping warm and dry!

Just wanted to share another Christmas project I have managed to complete this week, it's an idea from Split Coast stampers to make a gift bag from an envelope, you can follow the tutorial here. I made one of these at Easter and it was really quick and easy, so I decided to make a Christmas version! I'm intending to give it to my sister who loves sheep, so I've used this very appropriate Penny Black stamp!!

Here's a closer look, hope you can see the bling gems in the corner, the light is rubbish for taking pics with today ;-(

For the main part of the bag I've followed the sketch over at Midnight madness
