PPA16- Christmas Fun!

PPA16- Hot Chocolate Gift Sack. I made this at a Christmas Stamping event a few years back and each Christmas I hold a "Anything but a Card" workshop and these are a big hit! The Punch Pals Stamp Set is the only one you need to create this fun craft! I start with a white sack purchased from a local craft shop and stamp snowflakes in Bashful Blue on both sides of the bag.
The Snowman- he's adorable- and he is stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White. The penguin is stamped on a separate piece of paper, both are colored with Stampin' Write Markers. The penguin is then cut out and placed next to the snowman with a Dimensional. Stamp Tis the Season in Whisper White and use White Stampin' Emboss and the Heat Tool to make the words "pop". Fold the sack in half and apply to bottom part of bag. Start stamping the trees on Whisper White and Old Olive, then cut the trees, layer your paper and apply to left side of bag.
Use the Tag Punches and some ribbon and adhere to right side of bag. Decorate with Ribbon. Buy some hot chocolate packets. After you punch out the "handle" with the Round Tab punch, staple it to the hot chocolate and slip the packet into the open end of the bag. Fold it up, deliver to friends and wait for it......there it is..... a big smile! Happy Stamping!
