This Christmas Specialty designer paper, Peace this Christmas, Oh What Fun, Stampin' Up!, Glassine Gift Bag, Papercraft by Jennifer Frost

The Christmas in July theme continues today with this little collection of projects featuring the 'This Christmas' Suite.

For my first project, I chose to dress up one of the translucent Glassine Gift bags. These are great for quick gift packaging and food safe too - perfect for some sweet Christmas cookies! The Oh, What Fun stamp set had this 'sweet season' wording which I thought was a wonderful fit for a gift bag containing baked goodies!  I masked off the little lined section at the top of the stamp and added the pretty flower and berries from the Peace this Christmas set instead.

I decided to make a little clear Tiny Treat Box to match.  I lined the bottom of the box with some garden green cardstock, added a little baking paper and inserted the Christmas cookie.  I then closed it up with a band of burlap, a metallic gold doily and finished with a little round gift tag.

Lastly, I completed this collection with a Christmas card featuring the Peace This Christmas set.  It's the second card I've shared on my blog with this stamp set - you can see the first here.

    1. Thanks Connie. I cooked up a batch of these shortbread cookies just for props. I had to be quick with my pictures - my kids were beyond excited to have special Christmas treats so early in the year.
