Scrap Whispers January Blog Hop

Did you all enjoy your December break? We thought we wouldn't clog your pre-Christmas preparations up with blog hops, and this one is a really easy one to break you back in for the new year. I think it took me no more than about half an hour including decorating. I can see I'm going to be making more of these cute little gift bags.


I love how you can use up those patterned papers which you're tired of, and suddenly they have a new lease of life and you wish you weren't giving them away after all, hehee. This is DCWV paper from the Citrus collection, decorated with handles salvaged from shopping bags, my little Cropodile, and shapes cut using the Cuttlebug and the Silhouette, and not forgetting Stickles, without which my projects never seem to be complete.

The tutorial for how to make this is over on the Scrap Whispers blog site comes courtesy of the lovely Kelly. So if you want to have a go, join in and hop through all the DT's blogs and leave some love:

And don't forget to link us up to your version on the Scrap Whispers blog.

Enjoy, and have a great week everyone!
