Box in a Bag of Ornaments

Hi everyone! I am slowly crawling out of my rut, almost there I hope! I made this little Box in a Bag (tutorial is on SCS) the other day to use up some of my SU! Holiday DP. I am really not too fond of this paper or the color combos, but liked this paper the most out of the set. After I cut the paper I realized it was sideways! DOH!!

Then I made the SUPER EASY ornament! I found a video tutorial on Stampin Academy. So easy! You could whip up a whole bunch very quickly! So then I thought....what I perfect little thing to put in the Box in a Bag! I had coordinated the two (again to use up the Ski Slope and Frosty Day DP). What a cute quick gift! and so inexpensive!!!

Thank you all!!

Good idea for those sheets of dp. I have some from a couple years ago that I just can't bear to see for another year!
