Crafty Calendar Challenge - Keeping Warm

Hello at long last to everyone ! and a Happy New Year to you all. It seems such a long time since I did a post, I hope you are all well and had a fabulous Christmas ? I know we did, it has been wonderful all being together for such a nice amount of time, we have seen so much of family and friends, it has been great.
So, onto todays project, this month over at Crafty Calendar Challenge we would like you to create something using the theme ' keeping warm '. I made this cute little box bag and put some hot chocolate sachets and mini marshmallows in it, a real treat on a cold winters day. You can find a tutorial on how to make the bag Here

I used an adorable CC Designs stamp and coloured her with copic markers. the papers are Crate Paper and I used a MS border punch for the band around the bottom. the flowers are from ebay and the branches are from a Leone Em punch.

Sorry there is only the one photo, I accidentally deleted the others from my PC and have given the bag away now so I can't get any more pics, most annoying !

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT projects for lots of inspiration,
