I decorated a plain kraft bag...
DP is Maja Design from the Joyous Winterdays collection...
the red fringe across the top is from Michaels...
I added some crocheted lace around the image...
this little darling is Sherri's Image can find her HERE...
coloured with my copics...
dusted with Chunky White Frantage...
I added Glamour Dust to her pom pom and Glossy Accents to her eyes, buttons, bell, holly berries, dots on her sock and hearts on her shoes...
the top arrangement...
rusty bells dangle from pine cones, beaded berries and ribbon...
the bottom arrangement...
natural fibres and cording are topped with a red chiffon ribbon, paper pine cone made using
