Repurposed: Bagged Cards

I've been busy this week working on my Christmas Cards--I'll be sharing these periodically, but I wanted to get a quick post in about some cards I made from some gift bags I'd been saving from Starbucks!  I wonder if you might remember when they came out with the Kraft Paper style gift bags at Christmas, with the red/white snow scenes?  I kept several of them and cut out scenes I thought I might use later for cards.  See if any of the scenes look familiar.  These are just a few of them...quick & simple!

Just added ribbon

Applied to white cardstock with hand-written message

Inked the edges with white ink; added vellum stickers, vellum message
with snowflake brad, and red metallic cording
Keep an eye out this Christmas season as your gifts are bagged at the store...you might just find some interesting materials you can repurpose & put to good use for all kinds of projects...including, of course, Christmas Cards, wrapping paper, or even after Christmas thank you cards.
