Gift Bag Collage

My favorite gift package this year is this BIG gift bag.  It started as a plain brown bag ( a very generous 19 X 24 inches).  I cut 12 pieces of Deck the Halls DSP each 5 X 5.  Then the fun began I as started to add all sorts of embellishments and stamps to the squares. 
Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon with a pin from the Vintage Trinkets set.
Champaign Glass Glitter and pearls.  The corners accents were cut with the Scallop Square punch and trimmed to size.

Cherry Cobbler seam binding tied in a double bow.
Wide striped grosgrain with a seam binding rosette.  (Instructions for the rosette can be found HERE.)
Lace trim with a brass button brad.
Fabric medallion with ruffled seam binding flower.  (Instructions for both can be found HERE.)

Waffle paper with non Stamping Up holly berries.
One little pearl on the pretty DSP.
Pleated lace trim.  (I used a line of sticky strip to adhere the trim.)
A Merry Christmas greeting with rhinestone accent.
All together the varying textures are very pretty.
