Day 4 - The Twelve Days of Christmas with My Creative Time

Good Morning!  Welcome all my friends to day 4 of The 12 Days of Christmas with My Creative Time.  You should have arrived here from Cassandra's Blog.
For today's project I dressed up a plain gift bag.  I even wandered into the jewelry section and picked up some chain and barrel clasps to make my own attachment for the tag.  It would be easier to tie it with twine or ribbon but I wanted a little something shiny and different this time!

  
To make the tag very sturdy I cut a coaster from Papertrey Ink with the XL Label die.  These coasters are sturdy but lightweight, thin and cut beautifully with Emma's dies.
Supplies I Used:
Jolly by Golly paper  -  Cosmo Cricket
Boa and Sheer Ribbon  -  Michaels
Glue Gun, Jolees Crystals and IRock
Spun Sugar Distress Ink
Jewelry Chain and Barrel Clasps
Eyelet and Crop-A-Dial
