Oh, Christmas Tree -- for The Cutting Cafe

The Cutting Café design team is showcasing more Christmas projects again this week.  We given a variety of files to work with, with a common theme -- a Christmas tree.  Since I'm in need of some goody bags for gifts for my staff, I set to work making several.  I love how they turned out.  I used the Christmas Tree Goody Bag holder from The Cutting Café.  This file is very easy to work with and quick to make.  I'll show you all 3 bags I made first, then each one so you can get a closer look.
When I was cutting these out, I made this one first:
This first goodie bag holder uses the Christmas Gift Tags printable stamps set also.  When I was cutting these out, the song, "Oh, Christmas Tree" kept going through my head.  I thought it would be fun to put the song title right in the middle of  a tree.  So I did, on this treat bag:
This second goodie bag holder uses the Christmas Card Fun printable set.  The tree is topped with a new Flair Button from 3 Girl JAM.  Then, I had the idea.  Why not put all the words to the song, in the shape of a tree, inside the cut out tree?  And I just knew if I've had this thought, so has Regina from The Cutting Café. And, sure enough, with a little poking around, I found the perfect printable set, "Christmas Sentiment Shapes":
This  bag holder is tied with some 3 Girl JAM jute ribbon. All papers are from Close To My Heart. They're called "Sparkle and Shine".  They were so fun to work with on this project! The red ribbon used is also from CTMH.
Don't forget to visit the rest of the design team to see their fantastic work.  And leave a comment on The Cutting Café blog Thursday for your chance to win 3 amazing sets of your own.  Good luck with your Christmas preparations!
