Now on to my hop project.  I dressed up a plain kraft bag using the Your Next Stamp Fishtail dies and the Perfect Paper Crafting Perfect Borders Layer Tool #1.
 

The Fishtail/Banner Die Set comes with a large banner die which I decided to make even larger by using Layer Tool #1.  I simply die cut a template in white paper and then used the tool to cut around the template. 

Check out how much bigger the fishtail ends up being.  I was able to make 4 different sized fishtails with 1 ruler!

Once the fishtails were cut out and attached, I added the reindeer and sentiment from the YNS Believe in Magic set.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Now it is time to hop on over to Eva's blog.

Happy Hopping!!!
Smiles,
Julie
