Decorated Gift Bags

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 an image from my new Crafter's Companion Barkley CD.  I have used backing papers from my stash.  I have embellished with die-cut poinsettias, brads, organza ribbon and Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.
 This gift bag is made from some Joanna Sheen House Mouse decoupage.  The backing papers I have used from my stash.  I have embellished the bag with ribbon, die-cut poinsettias cut from matching backing paper and brads.
 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.

This gift bag is made from the Papermania papers and images.  I have embellished with decorated brads, ribbon, die-cut poinsettia and Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.
