Mary Pat here with you today and I was really excited to find out that Core’dinations was teaming up with May Arts!  What a great combo! I always like to bring a little hostess gift when visiting friends and family during the holidays.  Just a little something to say “Thanks”.  So I made a little gift bag and tag using the yummy Core’dinations and the beautiful May Arts Ribbon.

novmay2For my project I used the Tim Holtz Shattered Collection to make all my pieces and layers.  This collection to me has such rich colors that just scream fall to me.  I used my Silhouette to create the fall leaves and then I added some stamped images to add some fun embellishments.  Finally to add the finishing touch I added the beautiful May Arts ribbon and cord.
