It's a gift inside of a gift! Today I have a super cute "mini-mini" album that I've tucked inside of a simple-to-make tree gift bag!  Get that assembly line going...this would be the perfect little gift for snail mail, grandkids, or use them as a place setting treat.

I will have a YouTube video available of the tree-treat bag, but first, let's talk about the Gingerbread House Mini Mini!

I started with the "Visions of Sugarplums" Stamp and Die Set. The gingerbread house was stamped onto a piece of the Kraft Woodgrain (Buffalo Check Petite Prints) and then carefully trimmed out.  Next, I stamped the image again onto various papers of blue, red and green from the 6X6 "Night Before Christmas" Paper Pad.  
As you can see, everything was paper-pieced into place.  White and red Sugar Coated glitters were used on the rooftop, steps and candy canes!

For the mini album pages, I used the same gingerbread house die to cut the shape from patterned papers and heavy-white cardstock. I layered the patterned papers (front and back) onto the white cardstock. Each of the pages were embellished and then added to a ring.

I used the completed album to figure out the size of the triangle-shaped gift bag.  To see how I put the bag together, please visit my YOUTUBE CHANNEL.

I completed the front of the tree bag with Doodle Frills, die-cuts and Doodle Pops!  The handle is a simple red/white chenille stem...voila!  Thank you for joining me today at Doodlebug Design!
