Vintage Christmas Angel Gift Bag

Hi everyone! I’m back again with another idea for Christmas! This time I creating a gift bag to hold either candy or small gift.

I started by inking the Christmas angel stamp from Character Constructions: Vintage Christmas No. 4 with Wicked Black Ink onto a piece of Watercolor PaperPush the lid in of each of the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Palomino, Salmon, Posy, Graphite, Moonstone and Scuba. I removed the lid from each ink and add a little water and painted directly from each lid.

I watercolored the angel’s face and hands with Palomino ink and let dry. Next I shaded the face with Salmon ink and painted the outfit with Scuba ink and shade with Graphite ink. The head scarf and belt I painted with Moonstone ink. I painted the candle with Posy ink.
Once dry I fussy cut the angel image out, applied Clear Glitter to wings and outfit and added four flat back pearls to angel.

I cut the following pieces of patterned cardstock: 3″x6″ and 1 7/8″x3 1/2″ and adhered both to the front of the bag. I also cut two strips of patterned cardstock slightly smaller than the bag. I cut a “V” into the end of the strips to create a banner and adhere to the bag.

Next I spritzed a wooden snowflake with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz and once dry adhered to the bag. 

I added sequins, buttons and flat back pearls to the snowflake.

I stamped the “Peace on Earth” sentiment from the Vintage Christmas No. 4 Stamp Set with Wicked Black Ink onto a strip of white cardstock and cut a “V” in the end to create a banner and added onto the top of the snowflake.

I applied Pop Dots to the back of the angel and add to the bag. To keep the bag closed I clipped a Mini Clothes Pin to the top of the bag. There you have it another DIY Christmas project that will save you time…as in getting out in all the shopping craziness and it will save you a little money too. 😊
I would like to submit this project for the following challenge:
