These are goody bags I made for my family for Christmas. I bought the bags at AC Moore for a dollar. They are Christmas bags and say merry Christmas on them and a picture of a sleigh. The merry Christmas is covered up with the toppers. I made the toppers from elegant edges at 6 inches as the bag measured across 6 inches. It was on page 25, the oblong shape. I then embossed then with the cuttlebug snowflakes folder. I made the santa with doodlecharms at 2 inches. I embossed the beard and mustache with divine swirls. I used stickles on his pom pom on his hat. I used elegant edges again for the sentiment this time the square one located on pg 25 hit shift swirl 1 at 2 inches. I folded the topper in half and stapled it together. Then I added the santa and sentiment which covers the staples.

This was one of the quickest cards I've done. I started with a 6.5 x 5 white card. I put on a dark blue mat at 6.25 x 4.75. The star paper is 6 x 4.5. I used elegent edges for the center mat at 4 inches and I also used the shadow in dark blue. The happy birthday was from birthday bash and the 13th was from plantin schoolbook. I'm not sure of the sizes as I had to play around myself and not sure what I ended up with. The streamers were some stickers I had leftover.

This card was made for a friend who is having surgery. I got the idea from Cardz TV video. The frog was cut from paper doll dress up at 5.5 inches. You can find him on pg. 55. I added google eyes. Then take some card stock cut 4.5 x 11. Then score it at 2 3/4 and 5.5. The sentiment base is 2 1/4 x 3 3/4. This holds the card up. The sentiment will go here too but I didn't put it there. The sentiment would fit inside the base. Next you take another piece of card stock and cut it 4.25 x 5.5(a2 size) attach that to the base. The band across the card is 2 x5.5, I ran it through the cuttlebug. Then I added brads. The sentiment base can be cut at any size but since there are 4 people signing this, I left it open.
