Really Reasonable Ribbon Snack Sack


Hello Friends!!
 I  hope everyone is enjoying getting ready for the Holidays!
All I know is that, November 30th I was ahead of schedule, and all of a sudden I find myself behind schedule...LOL.  
I would like to share with you a "Snack Sack" that I created.  I thought this would be great to put a couple cookies, or candies in for a friend.  Then I thought maybe...just maybe if I accidentally left this at Ginny's, my BFF, she would fill it with a couple of my favorite oatmeal cookie sandwiches.  We have this thing about not returning bowls (hopefully gift bags will be included in this) empty...LOL.
I just love all the goodies I used from Really Reasonable Ribbon!!  
I used the Diagonal Striped Big Bitty Bags in RedRuby Red satin Ribbonred leaves, and peppermint baker's twine for my little cluster to the left.  I used the Candi foam pads Jute Ribbon in Moss, and Shimmer Satin Red Ribbon to add some colorful depth between my image, and my background.  I used the white organza to tie off my goodie bag!
I inked all of my edges with Ranger's Vintage Photo Distress ink.  I used the "Candi foam pads" between my layers.  I created the music and holly background paper myself in GIMP.  I matted all my papers with black card stock.  I thought it would set all the images off nice and vintage like from the red and white of the bag.
I really love how it turned out.
I used my crop o dile with some grommets to create the holes and then tie my white organza bow.
I can just smell those yummy oatmeal cookies now....Hint Hint...
I hope you enjoyed my post today!  I hope that you are ahead of schedule!!
Don't forget about our current White on White plus one other color Challenge and Ribbon going on now!!
at Really Reasonable Ribbon!!
Hugs!!
Thank you for visiting!!

  6. Hi there. I saw your video about how to create a background in blogger and I am wondering if I can have a copy of your template? You mentioned it in the GIMP video you did
