Really Reasonable Ribbon Gift Packaging & Ribbon Challenge

Hello Friends!!
So excited to share with you the 
Gift Packaging and Ribbon Challenge 
that we are having at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog!!
I decided to make a gift bag using some fabby items from 
Really Reasonable Ribbon!
I started out with some of
 my Favorite Goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon!! 
I also used some of my Collage Sheets. 

Countdown to Christmas Focals Ornie Digital Collage 5 Sheet set $10

Here are a couple more photos

I used Frayed Burlap Distress ink on the edges of all of my pieces and the bag too.  I know that Bonnie is doing inventory right now, I think she may be out of the plain white bags, but you can do this same idea with any of the bags.
I simply cut off the excess longer side so that the closure would be even.
I added the ribbon glued down my paper onto the front, top and back of bag.
 I layered the Paper, doily then Edna Lace and lipstick red Seam binding
Pop dots were placed on the back of the Santa focal.  I layered the Red Micro gingham ribbon on top of the lipstick red Seam binding.
I made a tripple bow out of the lipstick red Seam binding with my bow it all tool, and put it on a piece of Red Micro gingham ribbon.
I punched holes in the top fold of the bag.  Then I covered the bag with paper.  I centered the Red bow onto the front of the bag and then threaded the gingham to the back of the bag and tied a bow.  This is what keeps the bag closed.
I used Fauna, Garnet, Ensalada, and Rose Gold glitter on my piece.
I tied a tiny button with the Peppermint Baker's Twine and placed it on the bag just left of the focal.

Here are a few other packaging ideas that I have done in the past.
