Christmas gift bag and paper ornament

Happy weekend everyone!!! I'm sure you all busy for the Holidays just like me lol..

I love to recycle stuffs and today I want to share my altered box. This box was from the Crunch 'n Munch hmmm... yummyyyy... Ok instead of throwing away I have to keep it, as my dear hubby and my 2 girls scold me all the time when I said I want to keep it and alter it later... But anyway I altered this box and turned it into a gift bag. I'll give it to my youngest girl so she could put something for her best friend for x'mas. I have to make more and use it for gift bags. Oh if you notice I took the picture outside by the green grass. This is my first time to do this and I love it.

I entered my project (gift bag)to the following challenges!
Fussy and Fancy Anything but a card

Creative Belli R's Red Ribbon
Reasonable Ribbons Anything but a card
