Holiday Clear Totes

Earlier in the year I posted a pattern for a clear tote bag, and I thought I'd give it another try with a holiday spin to it:

This time, I used a wired garland for the handles instead of ribbon...much more festive!!! This tote holds 2 chocolate dipped shortbread cookies.

To make this tote (above) more Christmas-y, I added stamp #931 (Santa's Hat) to stamp #A137 (Buddy With Cookies)...along with the word stamp #A130 (Cookies Make the Holidays Happy). For the tote below I used stamp #B134 (Christmas Cookies):

Can't forget Halloween (it's only 2 weeks away, you know!!!):

This tote uses stamp #A150 (Ghost and Pumpkin). Instead of handles, I decided to close this bag with a flap. I folded in the sides of the bag (like a brown paper bag)...then stapled it shut. I stamped #B108 (Halloween Scroll) on a 2" x 2" piece of cardstock...cut the edge around the stamped image and scored the piece to fold approximately in half...then I used double stick tape to attach to the bag. I hope the photo below makes it clearer:

Thanks for stopping by...hope you can find some time to craft today!!!
