Altered Project Anyone?

Hey, great that you stopped by to see my altered project...
I love to make something new by 1 man's trash is another man's treasure...
so today's project was not really trash but it was so plain and blah

I took a craft color gift bag and turned it into a 'WOW' gift bag...heehee

No really, it looks incredible, what an improvement, who would not just love
to get this? whatever the present might be its a gift in itself...

So I attached a red 12 x 12 patterned paper for the base
oh don't forget the eyelets in each upper corner for reinforcements
I cut a few banner parts using my Cameo
I stamped the Ho! Ho! Ho! from the 

Oh and used the Santa from this same stamp set...
fussy cut the Santa after stamping 
and coloring with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers
The tree border is a Silhouette America File found on the Online store
it's truly 3 layers , 3 colors of green
colored the stars with some metallic markers...

Check out this stamp set the winner will be receiving
this is a must have for me...heehee....
so give it a shot, make an altered item and link it up to the challenge post...
we would love to see your projects...

Now be sure to stop by all the other design teams' blogs for some
wonderful inspiration for an altered item... its an amazing team
I am so honored to be on this team...
So excited to share more in the future...

Happy Craft'n
