Pootlers Blog Hop - Unique gift bag using goodies from the new Autumn/Winter catalogue 2018

Hello :)

I am so excited to be taking part in Pootlers Blog Hop for the first time.
Together with my crafting friends, we are celebrating the launch of the new Autumn/Winter catalogue by Stampin' Up!

Below you will find my project made using amazing goodies from the new catalogue. 
Hope you like it.

What's unique about this gift bag is the embossed window. The swirls match perfectly my Christmas theme here. What I also love about the bag is the paper - it folds in from the sides making it look like some kind of a curtain. Reminds me of a curtain in a theatre, and that adds a bit of a posh look to the display behind the embossed window. I can imagine a  mini prosecco  bottle in there haha

I didn't want my gift box to look too busy so I only attached a few embellishments to the design. The Santa sticker, happy Holidays sentiment (die cut), ribbon bow and clear epoxy droplets.

I cut the window out using a craft knife but you might as well use a die to cut out the desired shape.
The window measures about 7cm x 12cm ( 2 3/4" x 4 3/4")
I love the embossed swirls and curls in this window, it gives so much more character and fun to the gift box, 
don't you think?

The bow was quite unexpected really. I had two ribbons which I wanted to use but every bow I tried to make turned out not to my standards :P 
So I cut them into pieces and this is what I created. 

If you like my project keep an eye on my blog and Facebook page as I will be sharing with you a video tutorial in a couple of weeks. 

It took me a few weeks to finally decide what to use from the Winter/Catalogue goodies. There are so many amazing new items you will love.
