Winter Release Project Parade - Day 4

Hi everyone!  It's Michelle and I am here to share my project for Day Four of Verve's Triple Play Project Parade. The challenge is to create a terrific trio of yumminess! This can be to create three different things that all coordinate (like a bag, a card and a tag) or to create three different cards or three different tags -it's up to you.

My project started with this simple kraft gift bag.  They came in a pack of 4 for only $1 at Big Lots.  Simple, plain and full of possibilities.  I decided to fill my bag with a box of Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows, so I went with blue and white to match the box!  Never mind that when I actually PUT the box of hot chocolate in the bag, it was completely covered up!  LOL!

These projects use the new stamp sets, Winter Mittens, Sweet Scallop tag stamp and Glad Tidings and the Sweet Scallop Die.  Here is my trio:
For my bag, I stamped the snowflakes with white craft ink and added some silver pears accents.  I also used a border die and added a white strip along the bottom.  The handle has some white ribbon tied into a double bow and a blue felt snowflake from Stampin' Up,  The silver cord is the new Memory Floss from DMC.
Here is a close up of the card.  I used all the same stuff, and added the cutie mittens image from Winter Mittens.
And, here is the tag.  Easy peasy I tell ya!  I love the perfect sized "To: From:" stamp in Glad Tidings, makes tags super quick to make (just ask Jackie, Queen of tags!).  Again, I added the same ribbon, silver Memory Thread and felt snowflake.
