Stamp Simply CAS Christmas -treat bag

Hi everyone!  Welcome to another Stamp Simply CAS Christmas Wednesday!  Each Wednesday from now until Christmas, Sharon and/or some of her DT will show some quick and easy Christmas card designs.

Today I made a little treat bag!  I used a flat bottom glasine bag I bought at Michael's several years ago (from Martha Stewart), but you could modify this project to fit any little bag you have in your stash! 

Starting at the top, the paper is from My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland 6x6 pad, which has a piece of Silver Mirror Cardstock die cut and glued to the bottom and a piece of velvet ribbon across the seam.  I then punched 2 holes through the bag top and threaded it with some 3/8" silver metallic ribbon and tied it into a bow.  The ornament stamp is from the JustRite stamp set, Noel Christmas Ornaments and I embossed it with silver EP, colored it with copic markers and added some rhinestones.  I attached it to the bow with some silver string.
It's impossible to take a decent picture of the silver mirror cardstock in a way that shows it as SILVER (it always reflects and looks gold), but trust me, IRL this is full of silvery goodness!
Now head on over to Sharon's blog and see what Christmas inspiration she has for you.  She didn't have a chance to make a card, but she DOES have some new amazing Christmas goodies in the store!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  I'll leave you with a close up picture.
