Holiday Gift Bag

We have a holiday party this weekend and I felt our hostess gift was lacking a little something presentation wise. I happened to have scraps of the Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding collection, which is the paper Paula used on the coaster set gift we're taking. So I quickly added the little penguin panel. It's made completely from scraps of paper, ribbon and a lonely metal tag I've had laying around for a couple years. It's not too easy to tell from the pictures, but the penguin was colored with Copic Spica pens for a bit of sparkle, his hat and scarf are paper pieced, and the hat has a little bit of white flocking on the ball and brim. Just a few touches to give it a little something extra.

Thanks for looking!

Those are adorable! I'm so in love with Penguins. I would enjoy the bag as much as the gift inside it!
