SVG Attic Christmas In July Blog Hop

Welcome to the Christmas in July blog hop!
We are so glad that you decided to hop along with us today.  Sit back and enjoy the beautiful projects that the SVG Attic design team has created.

This is the first stop on the blog hop.  There will be a prize to one lucky person who completes it!  To be eligible for the $20 SVG Attic gift card, you must leave a comment on all four blogs in the hop.  One winner will be randomly selected.  We would also love it if you would become a follower of our blogs, but it is not a requirement to win.

This project is one that is very versatile.  It is a beautiful gift bag that can be re-sized to fit a small jewelry box or large enough to give a book or a shirt.  This one in particular measures about 5" high (excluding the wire handles.)  
I used the Ornament Bag files from the Holiday Cheer Gift Boxes set.  I imported the files and made sure to keep the proportions and then re-sized them to be 5.5" wide.  I used olive green cardstock for the front, back and sides.  Then I re-cut the front and back using designer paper from Cloud 9 Design called Seasonal.  The top of the ornament was cut out of shimmery gold cardstock and attached with two gold brads on each side.  The handles are made from 24 gauge gold jewelry wire.  I cut the wire to 8" long and wrapped the wire around itself to form a oval.

The bow on the front is from the Present Gift Box from the Make A Wish SVG set.  I cut it out of burgundy cardstock at 11.4" wide.  I used brown chalk around the edges and embossed it with a snowflake embossing folder.

The tag is from the Pillow Box files from the Holiday Cheer Gift Boxes set and was cut at 5.25" wide.  I punched a hole it it and added some baker's twine to attach it to the bag and stamped it so it is ready to use at Christmas time!

I hope you enjoyed this Christmas gift bag and don't forget to leave a comment on all four blogs in this hop for your chance to win the $20 gift card to SVG Attic!
