Magical Monday Gift Bag

I'm so excited!!! Tonight I learned how to make a gift bag and gift box, something I would probably never have done had it not been for this challenge.  Thanks so much to Nina for the wonderful "Think Love" digi from There's Magic In The Air.  Here are two views of the bag for you.  I was hoping to fill it up with candy to see what it looked like full, but can you believe it, there isn't one piece of candy anywhere in this house. So, tomorrow my mission is to stock up with yummy chocolates (like I need chocolate).
Thank heaven for You Tube and their tutorials. I do want to give credit to Michelle Sturgeon over at Come Stamp With Me for her 2007 Gift Bag Tutorial.  I would never have figured this out without her help.  I did modify the handle somewhat though.
Earlier tonight I downloaded a heart svg file from Dan over at My Crafty Life and that is where the tiny hearts with Xmas Red Stickles came from. It's Freebie #40, so if you hurry, you just might be able to get the heart border file and some hearts.
Items Used:  Spellbinder's Scalloped Heart Die - Copics - Xmas Red Stickles - Ribbon, gems, & paper from my stash - Creative Memories Heart Punch

I hope you enjoy my little creation as much as I enjoyed making it.  Thanks so much for stopping. If you'll leave me a comment I'll be over to visit before you know it.  Have a wonderful evening!!!!
