Blue Gingham Christmas Gift Bag

I recently had a chance to buy some gingham gift bags at a good price from Store Supply Warehouse. My goal was to make gift bags with a Bible message. Here's one of the blue ones I decorated. This was the only one I made with a favorite white flower I'd hoarded, the others have snowflakes, but I've given them away. I used some long retired CTMH paper because it matched best.  I used a Martha Stewart punch on the  Kraft cardstock and white embossed it with "Joy to the World the Lord is come" (ODBD stamp) and "Gloria" (old CTMH).  I subtley stamped John 3:16 on the banner piece on the right but it doesn't stand out.

The clothespin was stamped three times with music from PTI.

Thanks for visiting!

I'm sharing this project with the following challenges:
