Semi-Christmas Made Gift Bag

Had seen this cute Snowman gift bag at a store and picked him up and brought him home for this gift giving season. He is cute on his own... but decided to 'spruce' him up a bit... Here he is as he was sold in the store:

Happy and cute but lacking in the seasonal bling.... last trip to Hobby Lobby I picked up red foil card stock on half price and a "believe" die from the Clearance section. Once home I cut out the die using the red foil card stock and I put that onto the gift bag using a glue pen:

Always hard to photograph foil card stock ...  Wanted to add some sparkly snowflakes so used glittered white card stock (also Hobby Lobby) and the Sizzix/TH Snowflake die set and cut out snowflakes. For the smallest snowflakes I used the Snowflake border punch from M Stewart:

Added clear Wink of Stella to his eyes for some sparkle and shine:

Now the gift bag is waiting holiday treats for giving. Will add ribbons and twine once the bag is filled for giving:

Always can use help during Elf season and store bought gift bags save time.... TFL

This snowman was cute before hand, but he is now utterly adorable with his bling! I love how you dressed this gift bag up Candee! Hugs, Brenda
