Bag-a-Lope Tutorial with Bugaboo!

Hello friends!  Are you getting ready for your Thanksgiving Dinner?
I am looking forward to spending some time with my family and relaxing with good food and conversation!

As you know during this month of November, I have been a guest designer at
Bugaboo Stamps
I was so happy to have had this opportunity to work with an amazing group of people so friendly and fun along with working with such adorable images of course!
So before I leave as guest designer for the month, I have one more special creation to share with you along with a fun video tutorial on how to make this:
I have used two really adorable images by Bugaboo Stamps called Ginger Boy as well as a matching tag to go with this gift bag called Christmas Tags - Ginger.  Of course I have filled my bag with some yummy chocolate, but you can put anything you'd like to give as a gift!  A small ornament, a stamp or even a gift card would fit nicely inside with a bit of tissue paper to keep out "peekers"!! LOL!

Here is a fun video that I  have created for you to help you put one together for yourself:
Hope you enjoy it!

**Please note that I have stamped a snowflake image and sentiment (bottom) on my bag while it was still flat and then attached the image panel and added my handle, tag and snowy sparkle border to finish it.**

So now that you know how to make one of these, I do hope you try one soon!
Or if you had previously seen it from my last video that got deleted and didn't get to try it out, I do hope you re-visit this tutorial and give it a go!

Here's another photo of the finished design again:
In this photo, you can see better how I've attached the ribbon handle at the top with a snowflake accent and brad in the middle along with the end of the ribbon.  You can also better see the dimension of the "Bag-a-Lope" filled with goodies! :)

I have a couple of challenges that I'd like to enter this for:
Creative Knockouts - Snowflakes
Cute Card Thursday - anything but a card
Brown Sugar - anything goes
Crafts 4 Eternity - glitter & sparkle
Crafty Catz - Tags & Bags
Stampin' for the Weekend - Feeling Festive
Creative Card Crew - Sweet Treats
Top Tip Tuesday (TTT115) - Be Krafty! (hope kraft envelope counts!)

I'd like to shout out to you all a big warm and cheerful
I hope you find time to spend with those most close to your heart.  I thank you ever so much for stopping by and checking out my video.  Please stop by again on Saturday as I have another creation to share with you then.
