Northern Flurry Embossed Bag Weekend Project

This bag was SO fun to make.  I just took a white lunch size bag and used the Northern Flurry Embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot 3 times.  I started in the middle but if you're going to do this I recommend you start at the end of the bag.  Run it through the Big Shot.  Take the folder off and turn it so you are on the opposite edge and run it through again but go from the top of the bag to the end of the folder.  Try not to go further or you will smash down the texture on the first snowflakes you did.  Then take the folder off again and put it on the other edge and run it through like you did for the middle snowflakes.  And that's it.  

You can decorate the bag all the way to the top. I didn't because I was going to add a card stock header to it and staple it shut.  This was SO simple to do and I think it turned out cute.  I'm going to make another one and follow the instructions I just put on here so I don't have smashed  snowflakes in the middle.  

These would make great gift bags or fancy lunch bags for the winter months!! I plan on adding some candies to mine and give it as a gift for the cart guy at the grocery store who always seeks me out to help me load my trunk.  He's so sweet!  And I think I may make a few for those hard to wrap gifts.  It's a lot cheaper than buying gift bags!!!  I had gotten my white bags online but in the past I had gotten them at Sam's Club.  I have not checked there to see if they carry them anymore.  Just Google them and you're bound to find them somewhere!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
