MCT December Sneak Peek #1 ~ Gift Bag!

Hi Everyone, I hope that you enjoyed your Christmas with family and friends!  I'm sorry I haven't been posting, I took some time to spend with my family!
 
Well Well Well, you are in for a treat today!  My Creative Time's December Release is way too sweet for words!  You may think that this is a Valentine's only release and on the surface it might seem that way, but it can be used for way more!
 
I created this darling gift bag and put a mask cool pack in it!  If you don't like 3D projects, don't fret...this could easily be made the same way and attached to a card base.


 
 I took one of the layering dies, pierced two holes to make a button then added glossy accents.
Don't you love how sharp and crisp this stamp is!  Oh, and aren't those the cutest little hearts!  I used an old book with lots of  "love" words for the hearts.

 
Recipe:

inside label cut at 2.79x1.45

old book
