Treat Bag Cover


One 3 3/8 x 10 1/2 cardstock
sticky strip
Border Punch, I used the Scallop Trim Border from
the S-A-B catalog
Stamps, Love You Much I used here
Crop-a-dile, or hole punch
3x5 cellophane bags
candy to fill your bags with.

Make Your Own:
Step 1- Score the cardstock at 4'',4 1/2'',5'' and 9''
Step 2- Fold cardstock in half at 4 1/2 scoreline, now score the 4'' and 5'' score line in the opposite direction to create the bottom of the treat bag.
Step 3- Fold the top flap down.
Step 4- Decorate the edge of the flap with you border punch.
Step 5-Decorate the front of your treat bag cover.
Step 6- Add a strip of sticky strip tape on the score line under flap. Place candy filled bag on the card stock.
Step 7- Fold your flap down and punch a hole, close to the center of the flap.
Step 8- Thread ribbon through holes.

Thanks S.C. for a cute idea.

This is what we learned
in the last class from (agirlwhostamps).
You will love these classes
you will always come home with great and new helpful tips.

Direct to Paper:
1. Slide brush tip end of a Stampin write marker into slot of color spritzer tool. place marker tip past tip of spritzer and touching tip of spritzer.
2. Hold squeeze pump of the color spritzer tool in your hand with your thumb lightly covering the top end where there is a cap with holes.
3. Point tip with marker down over scrap paper and squeeze quickly and firmly several times to create great texture with ink splatters.
4. Hold the tool further from paper for a lighter spatter and closer for a darker blotchier splatter. Once you have discovered the desired pattern spritz onto card stock. Repeat with another marker color if desired.

Direct to Stamp:
1. Place a medium to dark colored marker in color spritzer tool.
2. Ink a solid image stamp with light to medium colored ink.
3. Spritz ink directly onto inked stamp. Stamp inage onto card stock and see the beautiful speckled ink spattered image.

Valentine Box

I got this idea off the SU website. Thought it would make a perfect Valentine Box. Started my sheet of designer paper at 6 1/2' x 7 3/4'. I scored at 1' , 2 1/2', 3 1/2' ,5 1/2' . On the four corners I cut a 1' x 1'square off and another 1' x 1' square in the middile between the 2 1/2' and 3 1/2' score line. Then all that is left to do is fold your box on the scored lines and seal with your adhesive and decorate to your fitting.

Garden from the Heart

This is using the new "Garden from the Heart" 118568 stamp set from the new catalog mini. I used the new clear mount stamps set with this and just loved them.
From using other companies in the past I can truly say the quality of it is way better.
I also used the new designer series paper "Shade of Spring" 117160

This didn't turn out to be a very good picture,
but you will still see the just of it. =)
My great nephew turned the BIG one today
and he loves Mickey Mouse Playhouse.
So what better card to give than one that says "Mickey" on it.
