Waiting For Christmas

Hi all! Today i have a Christmas gift bag to share with you!
Picture Heavy Post!
 First of all my bag didn't start off white it was yellow, i wanted white so i recycled some textured white paper from packaging and covered the bag.

 I used my new template from Dutch Doobadoo and embossed the inner layer with my Crafter's Companion folder. I diecut my Spellbinders Majestic Elements die and stamped my Magnolia's onto it. I used 2 new stamps from the 'Waiting for Christmas' collection and they are 'Christmas Delivery' and 'Little Santa' which i coloured with Distress Inks and added some 
glitter and Snow-Tex. I've even popped some flickering tealights in there!
 Magnolia dies used are 'Angel wing', 'Tilda Ticket Tag' and 'Large House' (the link is for the little house but i have used the large one. Also used Noor! Design snowflake edge die, Prima resin tree, lace, pom pom ribbon and a snowflake charm.
