Santa's Coming Gift Bag

So what do you do when you have a small gift that needs 'special' wrapping?  Why create your own wrapping of course!  And so for those small gifts that need giving I have created my gift bag with tag all in one.
For this project I used TBBM, Simply Charmed and a few scraps from my handy dandy scrap drawers.  (This my friends is why I never throw my scraps away.)
I cut the 'shopping bag' from TBBM stretching the cut so that it was 11 1/2" long and a little over 6" high.

My Santa and Chimney are from Simply Charmed. The chimney was cut at 4 3/4" and Santa was cut at 4".
To create the chimney I embossed the bricks and then inked over them with fire brick red distressed ink. The snow cut was covered with MS snow glitter. 

To create Santa I embossed his beard/hair and flocked his hat and coat. The gift tag in his hand was cut from TBBM at 1" with the words "For You" printed on the tag.
Oh and wait, it gets better.  You ready for this?  I made this one so that Santa can "go down the chimney".....

All I did was pop dot the chimney to the front of the gift bag thus leaving room for Santa.  Pretty nifty 'eh?  lol
