It's a WRAP freebie!

Here we are in DECEMBER already. What? Wasn't it just August. Sheesh. I was reminded recently of the impending holiday when I opened a wonderful box of donated fabric to find a huge quantity of Christmas cloth. Yes! Just what I needed to make a bunch of bags for YOU. And, what are we going to do with these bags?
We are going to use them to WRAP presents, of course. There is nothing more eco-friendly than wrapping a present in a fabric bag that can be used over and over and over again. I mean, it can even be used to bring the present home from the store, for crying out loud.

All you have to do is put your gift inside and then tie up the handles like a bow. Easy peasy. Hang a gift tag off the handle and you are set. Easiest. Wrapping. Ever. Even my husband can do it.
I know it looks from the top photo that we have 15 bags to give away. Nooooooo, that is NOT the case. We actually have 70 (YES, 70!) of these bags. BUT, we are going to choose 35 winners and send 2 Christmas bags to each of those people. Then, if they give one away, it's all good.

To enter to win a bag (open to everyone, world-wide):
•LEAVE A COMMENT, IN THE COMMENT LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN THIS FORMAT: name(at)something(dot)com it is important to spell out DOT and AT so you don't get spam, if you DO NOT leave an email address, you will not be entered in the freebie.

•DEADLINE FOR THE FREEBIE IS 9pm (Mountain Time) Tuesday, Dec 3. (winners will be notified no later than Dec 4 via email and here on the blog so CHECK BACK!)

Don't forget to leave us your email! We will only contact you if you win.

35 lucky people will be picked at random to win a set of TWO Christmas bags!

One entry per person. If you enter more than once, all your entries will be disqualified.

We will ship these shopping bags internationally. You MUST use English for your comments. Do the best you can. Non-English comments will be removed.

Good luck everyone!! Jolly, jolly! Teresa
