Advent Calendar Pillow Box, Traditional Christmas Tag and Gift Bag

Hello Friends!!
I hope you are all having a fabulous day!
Hard to believe it is already December!!
It is December 1st, which means it is time for a new challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon!!
This month we are only having one challenge, and it is a BINGO challenge!!
Here is the Bingo card.
You will need to pick 3 in a row
( I did a full card for my
and use RIBBON!
First up is a Traditional Christmas Tag, with a Gift bag and tiny tag.
Second is my Christmas Advent Pillow Box
Pin It!
I started out with my two new sets of Digital Collage sheets.

Here is a closer look at my projects.
I used Art Glitter Designer dries clear Glue & Ultra fine  tip to add glue to the focal image.  #196 Lion's Mane was used on the inner ivory colored circle.  #349 Garnet for the scallops and text boxes.
#295 Ensalada was used on the Holly 
I used the same glitters and goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I added some Red Mullberry roses, lipstick seam binding, Edna Lace, and Red Satin Ribbon and Red snowflake ribbon.
I also used #79 Black glitter on my numbers, #160 Rose Gold glitter a round the edges of the tag, and my numbers.
You can see how I created my tag above and how I added glitter to all of my pieces that I have done.

Next Up is my Advent Pillow Box
This is the front!

Here is a look at the side.  You can see the Edna lace and Gingham that I have put around the box.  I used the micro gingham as my hanger.

Look at the back.
You can open the bottom and fill it with goodies, then hang it on the tree.
You can watch how I created the Pillow Box from my Collage Sheet in my
Youtube Video below.

Anyone who purchases my Advent Calendar Digital Collage Sheets Sheet sets or has a $25 purchase in my Etsy, will get my Plane Candy Canes Digital Collage sheet for free.
