Simply Sunday: Holiday Treat Bags

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  We are have having great “fall appropriate” weather … a bit crisp in the morning and evenings and warm (NOT HOT) sunny afternoons! I love it!!

Yesterday I shared with you a Step-by-Step tutorial on how to make two cute treat / gift bags from one 12 x 12 sheet of designer paper.  Today I have two more of those cute bags to share with you.  Once I started making them, I just kept going … they are really fast and easy to make, then embellish as desired.

I’ll start out with my Halloween since that is where I left off yesterday …

This cute little bag was also made with the goodies from the Toil and Trouble product suite on pages 48 and 49 in the Occasions catalog.  I also used the Stitched Shapes and Layering Oval Framelit Dies.

My little ghost that comes from the coordinating stamp set was colored with the Gorgeous Grape and then highlighted with “Wink of Stella”.  I used the beautiful Black Glittered Organdy ribbon to finish off my edge (I don’t like to leave a raw edge fully exposed).

On my Christmas treat / gift bag I did not finish off the raw edge per say, but I placed my greeting over part of it.  That is my personal preference and that’s what’s nice about creating your own cards and projects … we can make them the way we want!

The pretty paper I used here comes from our Annual Catalog on page 95 … Under the Mistletoe. The greeting and the cute little holly embellishment I stamped (and cut out) comes from the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle. Again, I cut out the greeting using the Stitched Shapes Framelit dies … boy I sure do use them a lot!! lol

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing a few more of these cute bags, and I really hope you give it a try.  Here is the link: CLICK HERE to view the step by step instructions again.
