MKC DT Day - Christmas Paper Bag Purse

Hi, Crafters! Janis here from Pause Dream Enjoy.
Today is my Design Team posting day for
But first, did you see today's FREEBIE?

It's only free for today, so make sure you go grab it!

For today's project, I decided to use:

Open Dec 25th Tag

Here's my project:

Red paper bag

Green Tulle

Christmas paper - Carta Bella "So this is Christmas"

Dew drops for berries

Small magnets to have the flap "snap" closed

Here's a close-up of the magnets & a sneak peek inside:

I love it!
You can make these for any occasion:
Get Well - include tea, cough drops, tissues, chicken soup...
Happy Birthday - stick a cupcake in there!
Christmas - small gifts
Valentines - heart shaped cookies
and on, and on, and on....

The paper bag is sturdy enough that
you could even include some baked goodies. Yum!

I found a great video tutorial on YouTube 
explaining how to turn a paper bag into an adorable purse.
You can find the video HERE.
(NOTE: This is NOT my video!)

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm up to.
Go grab today's FREEBIE!
