I like to give homemade Christmas goodies to a number of our neighbors. This year, I decided to make two styles of Christmas treat bags.
This first one is the one I liked best. It uses two stamp sets I received as birthday presents.
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Friendship Jar; Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers; Stampin’ Up Snow (wheel)
Cardstock: Stampin’ Up Whisper White, Marina Mist
Ink: Stazon Jet Black; Stampin’ Up Marina Mist
Embellishments: liquid applique, Stickles silver
Tools: Papertrey Ink Friendship Jar die; Stampin’ Up Creamy Caramel marker
The second style of treat bag has a color flaw that is bugging me. Even though the green ink I used on the treat bag matches the green cardstock, they don’t look like the same color. It is probably because the treat bag is glossy, which is great for keeping the treats contained.
Stamps: Stampin’ Up Yummy, All About Christmas (wheel)
Cardstock: Stampin’ Up Whisper White, Garden Gree
Ink: Stampin’ Up Garden Green, Real Red
Embellishments: the Twinery Maraschino
Tools: Nestabilities Labels Four
Both of the above treat bags are made using Window White Tin Tie bags from Paper Mart. I bought a package of 100 a while back and I need to find reasons to give gifts more often. Both of these treat bags are also made with a challenge in mind, Meljen’s Challenge #38 sweet as candy (or cookies). I have to say that goody bags filled with cookies quality as sweet.
This last treat container is actually one I made quite a while back at an A Muse workshop at Stamp Salado. My friend Geeta is a certified A Muse instructor and she came up with the design, but I wanted to share it, because it is super cute. I filled it with candy cane kisses and rollos to give to our baby-sitter. We’ve only used Maddie twice now, but I am super pysched about the implications of having a non-friend baby-sitter.
Thanks for stopping by.
