December IARCC "All Wrapped Up"

Hello! Happy Monday and December! November just flew on by. It's time for another I Am Roses Color Challege. You can find all the details over at the IAR Challenge Blog. This month's theme is Christmas Gift Wrap. As you can see I made gift bags using brown paper lunch bags. I have tons of these in my craft room, back when I used to make paper albums. These are really cheap and affordable at any grocery store.

I simply embossed the bags with my embossing folders from Cuttlebug. The monogram tag is made from burlap trip. I had several colors and decide to use the red & green ones that were cut into little fish tail banners. The I Am Roses flowers that I used are listed below. I wanted to make them look like holly, so I grouped the three red roses together and laid them on top of some green daisy leaves. I also added some white mini rose buds.

These tags were really easy to make and I made several for gifts. I also put them on this small embossed glassine bag for smaller presents. All the tags were attached to the bags with jute rope and I threaded a jingle bells ball with it. It makes a really festive noise when you move the gift =)

I made a start to finish video on how I made the tags and also how I embossed the lunch bags. You can view the video here.

As always thank you for taking the time to look at my creations. I hope you are able to use my idea this holiday season. GOOD LUCK to those who want to enter the December IARCC.
