Pootles Advent Countdown 2017#2 Hug in a Mug Gift Bag

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles Advent Countdown 2017#2 Hug in a Mug Gift Bag

Happy Festive Friday everyone!

If you saw my blog post on Tuesday for the Colour Your World Blog Hop, you’ll know that I promised you a tutorial today to show how to make the bag.

I changed the decoration to use that adorable Hug in A Mug stamp set, but the bag itself is the same build. And most versatile it is too!

Could you imagine this with a couple of sachets of hot chocolate in, and some marshmallows in a little cellophane bag and perhaps (well definitely) a bar of chocolate too. Ooooo, I have galaxy chocolate in my mind right now!)

But you could switch out the decoration and put something else in.  A soft and silky scarf? Maybe some scented candles. Something that’s luxurious and decadent!

I enjoyed making this project, despite the first filming attempt being the one that tipped me over the edge last week!!!

Hope you have a super day!
