Newton’s Nook – Meowy Christmas

Meowy Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful day full of all the people and things you love! I have a fun treat bag to share with you that I made for my daughter.

I realized a few days before Christmas that I had a gift card for her but nothing to put it in. Well, I definitely had to remedy that, so I dug through my mental catalog and thought it would be fun to made this Lawn Fawn tote bag and decorate it.

I started with the Newton’s Nook Canine Christmas paper pad so cut the bag and assembled it with EZ tear tape. Then, to decorate it I chose this sweet kitty from Newton’s Nook Christmas Kittens stamp set. I colored it with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut it out. I used a little liquid glue to add the holly to his hat and foam squares to attach him to the bag.

Next, I cut banners from the Newton’s Nook Frames & Flags die set from black and white cardstock. I heat embossed a sentiment on one and glued them together, then to the box. Isn’t this so cute!?! For finishing touches, I added Touch of Gloss to the kitten’s nose and holly berries. Then I added black glaze pen to his eyes and set the bag aside to dry.

I didn’t want the “to” to be bold and distract from the kitty so I cut a small circle using the same paper pad and Newton’s Nook Circle Frames dies. Then I cut an “M” from black cardstock using the Newton’s Nook Essential Alphabet dies and glued it on. I used some baker’s twine from my stash to tie it on the back side. We all have different initials in our house so it was easy to leave just the “M” to tell who the gift is for.

I hope you enjoyed my project today! This sweet kitty just makes me smile!
