Bugaboo's Christmas in July Day 3 - Make a Gift or Gift Holder

Today is day 3 of Bugaboo's  -Catch the Bug annual Christmas in July challenge. The theme for day 3 is "Make a Gift or Gift Holder' . I used a sturdy paper bag from Lenscrafter's , covered their name with   golden zig zag fancy paper, and decorated the bag with a left over handmade bow from last Christmas. I coloured a Bugaboo image titled  'Sonbonnet Christmas Stuff'  with Prismacolor markers , attached it to a  used tag that had a gold sparkled surface,  and tied it to the Christmas bow.  Thinking maybe it did not appear to reflect the 'Baby it's cold Outside' theme, I attached three snowflakes to the front and several on the backside of the tag. Hope this works.
