New Idea for a Christmas Bag

Last week I was preparing to give a demo on gift wrapping.  I saw some really cute ideas on different blogs so I Incorporated several into/onto this bag.

I used Scoretape to put the lace on but it is hard to get anything to stick onto the Kraft bags so I will get the sewing machine out and stitch it on.
Instead of using an old Christmas card on the front, I printed out a digital image by Tlc Creations, distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink and a distresser tool.  Then I cut a piece of cardstock larger than the "card", scored it with double score lines and embossed the edges with gold (Versamark direct to paper and gold embossing powder).  I also embossed the photo corners, changing them from black to gold. Here is another photo - hopefully you can see the score lines and the tag a bit better.

The tag is from the Kraft Outlet, already tea dyed.  I added more distress ink.  The stamp is by Great Impressions which I colored with Copics.
