I took a few images to Chicago to color and the new My Favorite Thing Sending You a little Christmas image was one of them. I had stamped it on X-Press it Blending card with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it with Copic Markers ( Coat: B000, B02, B04  Scarf, hat: RV13, RV14, RV17  Leggings: YG21, YG03, YG25,  Boots and Mitten C1, C3, C5 Skirt: E50, E51, E53). It was cut and embossed with Classic Circle Nestabilities airbrushed with Copic Marker B01. It was then layered first on gray circle cut-out, then on a white Lacey Circle Nestabilities.

I added Polar White Flower Soft as snow on the bottom of the image and fine glitter on the hat and the top of the boots.

The patterned paper used for the bag is from Very Merry October Afternoon. The white cardstock strip was cut and embossed with the Snowflake Borderabilities and airbrushed with Copic Marker B01. I LOVE that border die. It’s big and the snowflakes that are cut out with it are beautiful. I used them (white ones) on the main image topped with Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones. The gray snowflake was cut and embossed with a die from the Snowflake Pendant dies from Spellbinders.

For the bag holder, I cut two small pieces of gray cardstock in half that they had been cut and embossed with Lacey Nestabilities die.  The crinkled May Arts ribbon was originally white. It had been colored with Copic Marker RV17.

  7. Hi Beate!
    I just wanted to tell you I love this little bag/box! I made 4 for a freind’s daughter’s baby shower and she had bought these cute little candle gift boxes. There were 3 votive candles and one little votive holder. These were gifts/prizes for the games we played at the shower. Mine had to be a little bigger than what you made. But that is the wonderful thing about these bags, they can be almost any size!!!

    Your tutorials are wonderful. But every now and then, you make me giggle. I watch your pinky on your right hand, it’s like it has a mind of it’s own sometimes. All the other fingers fold and tuck in but the pinky stands alone. Too funny. Thanks for the tutorials and the giggles. Have a terrific day!
