Your Next Stamp Christmas in July Fun Friday!

Good morning!  It's time for another YNS Fun Friday and as I mentioned this month's theme is Christmas in July.  You can see more wonderful creations from the design team over on the blog and in the Splitcoaststampers forum.

Today I have a Christmas treat pouch that I created using an up-cycled paper bag and some cute stamps from Your Next Stamp.  I wanted to show you how you can use a stamp that might not necessarily be for Christmas and use it for that purpose.  To Christmas-ize the Basket Animals set, I just coloured the balloons in the image red and green and then added some snowflake stamps to the middle.

On the actual striped paper bag I added some patterned paper and a To: From: tag.  The basket animal is a removable tag that I created using an Avery mailing tag.

I hope you enjoyed my post today.  Watch my blog on Fridays in August where the theme will be birthdays!
