My project today is the Holiday Bag shown on page 16 of the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.

I’ve had several requests for this bag and although I’m not totally sure this is the exact bag …. I think you’ll agree it’s close enough.

I made some minor changes  to the decor … let’s just say “I simplified it”.

I used the Season of Style Designer Series Paper along with the Joy to the World Stamp Set.

I changed the ink from White to Early Espresso and I also changed the pattern of the Designer Series Paper.


Here’s a video on how to make the Holiday Catalog Bag.
