Bah Humbug 45 Again

When I saw this  Bah Humbug challenge earlier I thought it was a shame I couldn't use the lovely gift bag we made at the Extravaganza last weekend so went ahead and made the little gift box.  However I have now made another bag following the  ideas but using different papers and stamps from my own stash.  Card and background papers are bits from my oddments and I used an EK Success punch for the decorative edge.  Stamps and punches used were from Stampin Up apart from the actual words which were stamped inside the label border with a greeting from a Polkadoodles set. I must say I had a problem finding a greeting stamp small enough to fit - I have lots of greeting sentiments but most are too large for any of my fancy punches and I usually resort to printing them on the computer.


  1. Yeah know what you mean most of my stamps are too big for tags and labels so I use my Xyron at the moment but used to do like you and print them on the computer. This bag is just fab - stop getting carried away you are putting me to shame.

  6. This is a beauty with all the little trims & I love the white base which gives a lovely clean crisp foil for the various other elements.
