A gift bag with tag for a girl or woman...DT project for Crafty Ribbons

Hiya peeps,

This post is about my DT (Design Team) project for the challenge over at 
 Crafty Ribbons Challenge Blog this fortnight.  The theme is "TAGS with ribbon (obviously)"

I used a bauble shaped image designed by Kenny called Happy Holidays and is currently on sale
on his website for a bargain price of $2!!!!

I have had the white gift bags for a couple of years now & even had to open the packet of 5 that they come in lol. 
The image that I converted into the tag is backed with a white card base of 270gsm. All ribbons are stuck on with extra strong double sided tape apart from the red Happy Christmas ribbon on the tag tying it to the gift bag handle. 
The White Christmas range which is described as:

White Christmas - Happy Christmas/Scarlet 

9mm grosgrain printed with hand drawn "doodled" snowy Christmas trees and winter cottages with Happy Christmas message. Printed on one side only.
9mm grosgrain printed with hand drawn "doodled" snowy Christmas trees and winter cottages with Bonnes FĂȘtes message. Printed on one side only.

Both ribbons are EXCLUSIVE to Crafty Ribbons

Both of the other ribbons that I have used are from Crafty Ribbons too but they were from the 
Bargains & Specials section of the website  and once gone they are gone. (Excellent value too!!!)

If you wish to know anything else about my project or the ribbons please leave me a comment below & I will get back in touch with you within 24 hours.
