Here is a selection of gift bags I have made using some Christmas images I bought in the sale after last Christmas, my Crafter's Companion Barkley CD and Joanna Sheen House Mouse decoupage.
I have done lots of matting and layering on these bags and made sure all embellishments are hidden and not seen through the inside of the bag as I hate to see that.
This bag is using some papers and images from Papermania. I have embellished it with some die-cut flowers with inked edges, ribbon, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, decorated brads and lots of Stickles.

This gift bag is using the Papermania papers again and some images but I am not sure the make of. The backing paper has so much glitter on it that it was difficult to take a photograph of. I have embellished with a die-cut poinsettia, decorated brads, Stickles, ribbon and Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.
