Stampin' Up Moose Gift Bag, Jolly Friends, Jolly Hat, Pretty Pines, Lots of Labels was so nice to see the sun yesterday.  I don't think we've seen the sun for a week now.  The clouds moved back in again for today, though.  Heavy sigh!!!

My share for today is a Gift Bag that I made on the Gift Bag Punch Board.  The Stampin' Up products that I used are the Gift Bag Punch Board, Jolly Friends Stamp Set, Jolly Hat Builder Punch, Pretty Pines Thinlits and Lots of Labels Framelits Dies and lots and lots of Gold Enamel Shapes.

Let's take a look:

Ha!  Ha!  Ha!  Hee!  That Moose just makes me laugh.  Love, love and love him.

I used Stampin' Up's Gift Bag Punch Board and a piece of Striped Real Red cardstock from SU's Brights Designer Series Paper Stack to make my Gift Bag.  I cut the Striped Real Red DSP at 6" x 12".  This way, you can get 2 Gift Bags out of one 12" x 12" sheet of DSP.

Using SU's Lots of Labels Framelits Dies, I die cut the second largest Label from Whisper White Cardstock.

I adhered one of SU's White Tea Lace Doily's to the bottom of the Label with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Using SU's Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies, I die cut a bunch of the Mistletoe pieces in Old Olive Cardstock and adhered them in a circle around the outer edge of the Doily with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I also die cut the Sprig die in Garden Green Cardstock and tucked them in here and there around the Wreath with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I looped a bunch of SU's Red and Green Metallic Thread around the wreath and secured it in the center with Mono-Multi Purpose Glue.

Using SU's Jolly Friends Stamp Set, I stamped the Moose twice in Basic Black Archival Ink; once on Soft Suede and once on Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I dissected, I mean fussy cut out both of the moose and adhered the pieces as shown in the above picture with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

Using SU;s Jolly Friends Stamp Set, I stamped the Hat in Garden Green Ink onto Garden Green Cardstock.

Using SU's Jolly Hat Builder Punch, I punched out the Hat and then I punched the Hat Brim from Real Red Cardstock. 

I assembled the Hat as shown in the picture above and adhered it to the Moose with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I tucked the tip of the Hat into the end of a SU Red Mini Jingle Bell and adhered it with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.  The Mini Jingle Bells really work too!

I adhered the Moose to the Wreath with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I adhered a lot of SU's Gold Enamel Shapes randomly around the Wreath.

Using SU's Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies, I die cut the Bow from Real Red Cardstock, adhered it to the top of the Wreath and added another Gold Enamel Shape.

I attached the Wreath to the Gift Bag with one of SU's Gold Binder Clips.

These Gift Bags are so quick and easy to make.  All the directions and the template are right on the front of the Gift Bag Punch Board.

Now, all I have to do is fill it with treats.  I hope Mr. Moose brings a smile to your face too!

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!  Have a great weekend!!!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges and using them for their own card classes.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
