Snowman Gift Bag

Well, it's just about time for Christmas, and it's time to finish those last minute gifts. And what about the wrapping? The wrapping is just as important as the gift itself.

Several months ago, I discoverd Elizabeth O. Dulemba through Justrite Stampers. Elizabeth is a children's book author and illustrator who creates some amazing artwork. If you visit her blog, she allows you to download images she has created. Her artwork is amazing.

I decided I wanted to decorate a gift bag so I chose to use Elizabeth's Snowman image, and, of course, I had to use my Copic markers on the Snowman and the background.

I created a large snowflake with my Cricut Expression and the Winter Lace cartridge. Laying the snowflake atop the gift bag, I sprayed Tattered Angels Frost Glimmer Mist for a little sparkle. I added it to the gift bag with some Pop Up Glue Dots.

I created the snowmound with a fun snow pen from Marvy Uchida. You lay down the ink then heat set it and it puffs up - it's awesome! I then inked the edges of the image with Ranger Distress Ink and mounted the image on some K&Company paper. I used a Silver Spica pen on the snowflakes then added American Crafts Glitter brads to the center of several of the snowflakes. The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock, inked with Ranger Distress ink and mounted on black cardstock. It was then added above the image with black brads. I then used additional Pop Up Glue Dots on the Snowman image to set it apart from the snowflake.
