Some treats while I'm gone, part 2

As I explained on my part 1 post, I made some treat bags for my family to open while I'm away in DR Congo.

This is a box of Jelly Belly jelly beans for my family to enjoy. I wrapped the box in a cut up lunch bag, tied it with baker's twine and added a button for fun. The tag is made from PTI's happy day die and I used a stamp from PTI's Road Trip set.

For this bag, I cut the bag in half and used the bottom section to make a very short bag. I cut along the top with pinking shears, folded it over and sewed the tag (made from a PTI Half and Half die) in place. The stamp I used here is from Close to My Heart (CTMH).

Again, I trimmed down a paper bag for this treat bag, but used a larger border punch along the top. I threaded the ribbon through the holes and tied it in place. The tag is a PTI tag sale #3 die and the stamp is from PTI's Movers and Shakers set.

And for Halloween, knowing they'd be getting an ample amount of candy that day, I bagged up some Kool-aid jammers for their lunches. I used the same punch as the previous day's bag, but folded it over. The tag is PTI's tag sale #5 and the stamp is CTMH.

Thanks for looking!
