Fold Flat Christmas Bag - Christmas Challenge Stampathon 2018

Today is March 25th, which means it's time for another Christmas Challenge Stampathon project.  This month's challenge is to create at least two, if not more, bags that can be stored flat.  Why? Well this way you can create now, store for Christmas with out taking up too much room.

What is Christmas Callenge Stampathon?

Do you find yourself scrambling to get your Christmas cards out in December?  Make creative tags for your packages?  Gift and Treat bags? Home Decor?

Well, a group of talented demonstrators and myself have decided to collaborate to help,all of us, not to feel rushed in December.

The Challenge will be set on the 25th of the month on each of the organizers Facebook pages and will then have followup information on their blogs and YouTube channels.
