Got Treats and More Amore Treat Bag

Hey Stampers !!

Happy Monday !! Is it a happy one where you are ?? If you live in my neck of the woods, you might not be very happy because we got DUMPED with snow over the weekend !! My poor hubby had to get out the snow blower for a couple hours yesterday afternoon and then do it all over again this morning before work !! Yuck !! I know there are some people who like snow, but we aren't those people !! Hahaha. but, one good thing about a snow day on a Sunday is that I had a bit of time for stamping !! I got a few things accomplished and had lots of fun doing it !! My project I am sharing today are these ADORABLE treat bags !! Its the first time I have made something like them (even though the idea is no where near new) and now I am hooked !! Have a look and tell me what you think !!


Isn't that just .. well ... delicious !?! And so fun and easy to make !! I bought the Medium Flat Cello Bags from Stampin' Up! a while ago with a project like this in mind, but this is the first time I used them ! They are the perfect size for some treats (I used these yummy Strawberry Marshmallows) and stapled the top of the bag once I had them filled. I used my Top Note Die to cut out  Pool Party die cuts and also some from the lovely More Amore DSP. I know, I have been using that paper a lot ... but its so beautiful !! I used my paper snips to trip the stitched border from the DSP die cut, so that the Pool Party would have a nice border around the outside. I folded the Top Note in half long ways, and then used a bunch of adhesive and stick it to the top of the bag over the staples. And then it was tome to decorate !!

I used my last few Laser Cut Doilies (sniff sniff) as a background for my awesome sentiment. This cutie comes from the Got Treats stamp set, and I love it. I used my Basic Black, Pool Party, Primrose Petals and Real Red markers to color them in, stamped it onto some Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch. I adhered it to the doily heart with a couple dimensionals, and added a Basic Rhinestone to finish it off. I wrapped a piece of the 1/4" Pretty In Pink Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon around the treat topper, and then added the heart piece. The "Happy Valentine's Day" sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamped in Real Red ink - punched with the Word Window Punch and layered onto a Real Red Modern Label - finishes off this cute little treat !! I am so excited to give them to their intended people !! Here is a picture of a few of them, with the different patterns of DSP that I used. Love it !! 


Well, thats all for me today !! I really love how these sweet treats turned out !! Thanks for coming by today !! Have a good one and Happy Stamping !!
