Please Snow
I created a treat or gift bag using the Please Snow stamp set.  I stamped the image directly onto the bag and colored it using Copic markers and a white watercolor pencil.  I cut the sentiment words individually after stamping it onto a scrap of white cardstock so I could fit the words onto the small bag.  This would make a fun treat bag to give to students, friends, family as a seasonal gift or stocking stuffer!

I also used the same stamped bag to create a luminary!  I inserted a small flameless candle inside the bag to create the illumination.

Please hop along with us! You have a chance to win one of the above stamp sets! Just comment on the following blogs (don't forget this one), each day for more chances to win! (You do NOT have to comment on all the blogs each day! The names are drawn randomly!) All six winners will be announced on
