Happy Anniversary LESSology!

We are having a anniversary. LESSology is one year old and our challenge is call It's a Wrap

For my project I recycled a brown shopping bag that I got from a coffee shop and made a Christmas gift bag. 

I covered it with Christmas Designer Paper and a Martha Stewart punch to decorate the top. 

Next I used a Raisin Boat stamp called Elves on Staff to decorate the front of the bag.

Here is the video of how it went from a brown bag to a gift bag.

I hope you will join us for our month-long celebrations. All you have to do is up cycle something into a giftbox or bag. 

Here's the wonderful prize package you could win.

Now get that tap and paper out and start wrapping!

Thanks for stopping,

I am so glad you seen my suitcase yesterday, I am going to use an idea similar to yours when you made the gift bags a couple weeks ago for YPP exchange I think.
