Happy Holiday's Blog Hop with Joy's Life Stamps

Happy Sunday!
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend so far :)

I'm so happy you decided to join us for the Happy Holidays Blog Hop!
If you arrived here from Joy's Blog, then you are in the right spot.
If you just happened to stumble across the hop today on my blog,
and would like to start at the beginning, then just hop on over and see Joy :)

For my project, I decided to make a little gift.

I took a plain white bag that was bought from the store and embellished it to make it pretty :)
My gray layer was run through my cuttlebug with the snowflakes embossing folder.
I then cut my snowflake and mat out of the Winter Woodland Cricut Cartridge at 3" and popped it up off the bag with some foam adhesive.
I added a little bling to the snowflake for some extra sparkle.
I then stamped my sentiment using a stamp from Joy's new stamp set titled

Inside the bag there is a special little surprise:

An ornament!
I took a clear glass ornament and poured a little liquid glue on the inside.
I poured out the excess and then poured some glitter into the inside.
I rolled that all around to make sure I got nice coverage and then poured out the excess.
I then cut a snowflake from the Winter Woodland Cartridge, also at 3", out of some gray vinyl and adhered that to the front of my ornament.
I finished it off with some bling and a silver bow.

Here is a picture of the bag and ornament together:

I think it came out so pretty! 

Now onto the blog candy :)
