Seven treat bags


We had our parent-teacher conferences yesterday morning for my two youngest children, 
which worked out to be perfect timing for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Decorated Kraft Bags.

I made some Butter Crunch for the teachers and thought that using a kraft bag for them would be new way to wrap them up. I used some regular lunch bags for my kraft bags, having wrapped the butter crunch in a plastic bag on the inside first.

For each tag, I used some PTI rustic white card stock and Tag Sale #7, and a sentiment from Nuts for You.
I stamped on the bag on each one (heat embossing with white embossing powder for the first six) and then coordinated the stamping on the bag with the stamping on each tag.

For the first two, I paper-pieced the sweet squirrel from nuts for you.


I stamped the background with BB:Chevron Stripes.
I added the little scarf from Simon Says Stamps' Stylish Simon stamp set.


Here, I did the same thing, but changed the background stamp to BB:Woodgrain.

Next I did the same thing, but with the Fox from Hello, Foxy.



And for the music teachers, I used a Clearly Besotted background stamp.
For the first bag, I added a bird from a previous anniversary set (I think!) I just have the one stamp -- I bought it off of someone on the forum.


And here I added the birds from Christmas Friends.


And lastly, I changed things up a little, by stamping on my bag with coloured ink.


I used the Mighty Oak stamp set and added a bird from Christmas Friends.

Thanks for looking!

What a great idea to give a little gift and participate in the MIM as well. Nice job making them pretty simple but really cute and each one a little different. Too cute.
