SIZZIX TRIPLE PLAY BLOG HOP WEEK 7: SANTA'S GOT A BRAND NEW BAG!

It's Thursday, and that means it's time for the final Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop! This week, we are using the Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die - Treat Bag Toppers by Eileen Hull. This die not only has three different sized toppers but lots of shapes to play around with as embellishments!

I have thoroughly enjoy the creative spark and tons of inspiration I have received from this blog hop and group of talented designers!

Now on to my project!



I just picked up these papers and stickers from Melissa Frances Home for the Holidays collection and had to use them! Love the vintage feel, they will be perfect for the homemade chocolate truffles I am going to make for my co-workers!



Here is a close-up of the larger Bag and Topper. I dyed the lace trim with Scarlet Red Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels. The center of the Santa rosette is a Flat Backed Facet from Tim Holtz - love those crystals, they are so versitile! I attached the papers and trims to the die cuts using a combination of Continuous Glue Lines, Ultra Thin Glue Dots and Pop Up Glue Dots - love all things Glue Dots!



This is a close-up of the medium Bag and Topper. I distressed all of my paper edges with Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk Ink by Clearsnap and used another Flat Backed Facet by Tim Holtz for the main Santa image.
