Gift Wrapping Made Easy!

I love wrapping gifts - it's so much fun finishing off a present with a gorgeous wrapping. Sometimes though, you have something that's just too awkward to make a nice parcel out of - Project Tuesday is here to help! This week we're making Genie Bags. I went with a Christmas theme and I think a decorated bag like this would be perfect for any hard to wrap gift!
I used products from one of the Dressing Up Christmas bundles on sale here in NZ this month - this stamp set and paper together are so elegant. 
I've cut an oval into the Top Note diecut and hand cut a mat from Real Red cardstock. The sentiment was inked with markers and layered on top using dimensionals.
On the back of the bag I've tied a quick label and added some more of that gorgeous mistletoe paper.

Head on over to Project Tuesday to see what the design team has come up with this week!
