DT post by GiGi - No peeking! Teddy Bear Parade

Hello everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug with a project to share. I used My Craft Spot's Mistletoe stamp set on this super cute bag! Right now the challenge here at My Craft Spot is to create gift packaging and I thought this would be another fun project for inspiration.

 How cute is that bear?

I made this bag using THIS tutorial I saw the other day. It it really easy to do and I love how you can re-size it to any size you need. 

My bag is smaller. It measures 5.25 X 5.5 X 1.5 inches deep. Perfect for those little gifts.

After I created the bag I added some decorative paper and ribbon handles. I also tied bows to the front and added the tag that I stamped with the Mistletoe stamp set. The teddy was cut from Teddy Bear Parade and the circle mats from George and Basic Shapes. I also cut the ovals for her paws from George. I opted to not use her big reindeer nose that goes with this cut and instead stamped the face with a Peachy Keen face stamp. I added Glossy Accents to her nose and tied some Cherry Divine Twine for her antlers. For the bottom of the bag I punched an oval, stamped the sentiment, and added it to a banner that I scored and folded back and forth.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my project and if you'd like to see more about this bag, please come visit me at The Cricut Bug. Have a great day!
