The Project Bin Christmas in July Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome back to day 2 of The Project Bin’s Christmas in July Blog Hop!  After 2 full days of The Project Bin’s holiday hop, you’ll probably have so many ideas, you can already start your Christmas list!
If you are hopping along, you should have arrived here from The Project Bin blog!  If you get lost along the way, or started somewhere in the middle, follow the candy cane trail back to The Project Bin inspiration blog.  You won’t want to miss the creativity along the way and remember:  2 lucky winners have the chance of winning one of the 2 generous gift certificates to shop at The Project Bin store!  Woohoo!

For today’s holiday inspiration, I’ve created for you a gift bag and coordinating card. What I love about this project is that I was able to feature a piece of 12x12 designer paper.  Since I mostly create cards the larger designs of the 12x12 paper can be problematic but it's perfect for a gift bag and card.  I was able to use one sheet for both the card and the bag.  

 Christmas time is such a busy time we don't always have time for lots of layers so I kept this bag super simple by featuring a lovely piece of deisgner paper, the beautiful sentiment from Joyful Song and piece of ribbon!

For the card I used the remaining portion of the designer paper and this sweet sentiment.  

Next up, hop on over to  Barb Deichl‘s blog.  Be sure to leave a comment at each stop and the winners will be announced on The Project Bin blog this week.  We hope you enjoy our Christmas in July blog hop!  ♥
