Altered Stampin'Up! Designer Series Paper - Take Two

Today we're going to do another project with Altered Stampin'Up! Designer Series Paper --Take Two. If you missed the first Altered DSP project you can check it out here..

Here's today's project: Mini treat bag

Check out the red striped paper from Be Merry pack...notice the white stripes have been altered by stamping A Christmas Wish for You (Best Gifts stamp set) in Garden Green Classic ink which coordinates really well with the Cherry Cobbler stripe in the paper.

It was a cute little bag but when we add the stamping it really takes the packaging up another notch to awesome!

I use some of the new tinsel trim and mini ornaments--that adds 2 wow factors. Then I added that cute tag using the new stamp set (Merry Little Labels) and the matching punch (Everyday Label punch). Note: these two items are a bundle so you can get 10% off by ordering the bundle!

Now I know some of you are thinking...."it's too early to think about Christmas packaging"....ok, for you---just jot a note somewhere and you can come back to this blog post when you are ready. For the rest of you...let's get going so we can enjoy the holidays instead of trying to get it all done at the last minute!
