No Peeking!

That's right, you can't peek into this little gift bag as it's devised with a lid! Ha...no cheating, no peeking, and definitely no shaking!  And if anyone in my family ever tells you I've ever done such a thing with a particular gift, placed so tauntingly under the tree, which I thought was resealed to perfection, I'll completely deny it!
They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, so if that's the case, I'm booby trapping all my children's gifts. Bwahahahahaha...
This little bag was created for the always fun linky party at Make It Monday where our wonderful sponsor this week is Bugaboo!!  I had the pleasure of using Snowglobe Marshmallow Snowmen and added another from my collection as well, Marshmallow Snowman Snowball.
Here is the original bag from a birthday party.

Thank you to my BFF for showing me how to make these lids! I watched her make about 1000 of them on Skype the other day and couldn't resist making one myself.  
Here's with a little tissue sticking out and I still can't reveal what's inside, because there's NO peeking. However, if my kids try, they'll find the mouse trap I've planted in the paper. I'm KIDDING!!! ;)
So please come on over and join in the fun at Make It Monday and see all the ultra groovy creations by my teammates. Oh and we've also announced the winner of Visions of Sugarplums special MIM prize.
Hugs n' Happy Happy Stamping...

Now for the best part, my....
The design, stitching, musical background, poinsettia focal point and glorious greenery give the most wonderful vintage appeal. A beautiful card Shelly and thank you for sharing this with us at Make It Monday.

Sorry I'm so behind chick. Can't seem to get caught up but I have checked all your posts out and as usual they run the gamut of fun to super clever! The lid on this one is pure genius. I always hate that you can peek in those gift bags. LOL Maybe you could use those sticky mouse traps for your kids. ;-) Always something interesting here Twang. Hugs!
