Welcome to day 12 of our 12 Projects of Christmas series!

Today, we're finishing off the series with a delightful gift bag, complete with co-ordinating tag. If you like, you can take the design and also create a matching card, for a full set!

To make the gift bag: 

1 Trim Jupiter pearl card slightly smaller than the size of your gift bag then affix using Dries-Clear PVA glue. Trim Crystal White pearl card, again slightly smaller to leave a small border, and affix using Dries-Clear PVA glue. Trim a sheet of foiled paper, slightly smaller again, and affix once more using Dries-Clear PVA glue. 

2 Cut another piece of Jupiter pearl card, smaller still, leaving a thick border, and affix using 3D foam pads. Cut another piece of white pearl card, again a bit smaller to leave a thick border. Stamp the tree onto the card and heat-emboss using Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing powder. Stamp and heat-emboss another tree onto another piece of card, die-cutting this one using the coordinating die. Affix to the bag using foam pads. Apply glue to the trees and the star, and cover in Salted Caramel Sparkelicious glitter. Add red crystals to the trees. Add glue underneath the trees and cover in All that Glistens Sparkelicious glitter. 

3 Stamp out six gingerbread men from the wreath set. Colour in and then die-cut. Add small red crystals the buttons on the gingerbread men. Add five of them onto the trees using 3D glue gel and set aside the remaining one for the coordinating tag. 


To make the tag: 

1 Take a piece of Jupiter pearl card and cut to 5½x9cm. Trim two triangles from the top two edges to create a tag shape. Using a hole punch, punch a hole in the top of the tag. 

2 Cut a piece or white pearl card to 6½x5cm. Stamp a sentiment into the middle and some small stars around the edges then cover in Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing powder and heat set. Add to the tag using foam pads.

3 Add the remaining gingerbread man to the corner of the tag using a foam pad. To finish, tie a piece of ribbon through the hole in the tag and then tie to the handle of the bag.
