Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Gift Giving Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Gift Giving Blog Hop!!

If you came here from Jeanne's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit Lisa's blog.  Today we are making projects centered around gift giving.  I have a cute little bag to share with you today.  

The 3D bag came from the Oval Window Treat Bag Cutting File from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  
Santa's face came from the NEW Christmas Cookies Cutting File.  The sentiment shape is from the Sentiment Spots 2 Cutting File.  All of these files are available for purchase HERE.
