Here is the project I have to show you: A Bag Full of Holiday Tags!

This fun project uses a gift bag as a container for a group of tags that can hold photo’s and journaling of Christmas Past or Present. It is a fast and fun project that I will be showing you how to make during a FREE Ustream class tommorow, Wednesday, December 13 at Noon Pacific Time. To work along with me you will need a small gift bag (printed or unprinted), a collection of printed paper (Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium, of course!), beautiful ribbons to embellish your tags (May Arts of course!), coordinating card stock and some light to medium weight Chip Board. During class you will learn everything you need to know to make your own Bag Full of Tags! To join in the fun, click on the Ustream logo to the right and you will go directly to my channel. You can just sit back and watch or log in to participate in the LIVE chat during the class. I look forward to “seeing” you there!
