ABaC in Non-Traditional Christmas Colors!

My Christmas in July Blog Hop post is here.

Good morning everyone! Today is the first day of our Christmas in July mini-challenges at Catch the Bug! Today we challenge you to create a Christmas card/project using non-traditional colors!! ...and since it's also ABaC (anything but a card) Monday ...I have a little gift bag to share with you! This is one of the small-inexpensive (3/1.00) gift bags you can pick up at Hobby Lobby. I removed the nylon handles first ...covered the front with cardstock and dp. Punched in some new holes and tied the handles back on. Added my adorable Snowman image, sentiment & buttons ...and there you have it!! A super easy decorated gift bag! ...now head on over to Melissa's blog to see her ABaC project ...it's so cute! Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Tammy, I was so busy looking at your beautiful colors and stamping, I didn't notice your projects WAS NOT a card, but a beautiful gift bag! Sorry for that mistake--I just know I love it.

When I first saw the picture of your project, I thought it was a card. Then when I read and realized it was a bag, I was simply amazed. What a great idea this is! You did a wonderful job on this! Best, Curt

Wow! This is gorgeous. Love the way you altered a gift bag. I have lots of old gift bags, but never seem to have the right design for what I want - never even thought to alter them myself - so thanks for the inpsiration.
Thanks for joining our 'christmas' challenge at CES.
