Christmas Gift Bag

I am so organised with my Christmas cards this year it is giving me an opportunity to try to make other items for Christmas. 

I have used Kanban items that are in my stash to make a gift bag. 
 I have covered the front and back of my bag with patterned paper and then added a reindeer embellishment. I die cut the banners with Sue Wilson dies and the sentiment with Tattered Lace dies.

I completed my gift bag with a bow on the reindeer.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:
