Happy Birthday Sweetie!-MCT Day 4

Welcome crafty peeps! We’re on day 4 and it’s celebration day! We’re all showcasing Celebrate Good Times. And, guess what, I made something other than a card for my project.

I decided to make a treat bag. I was thinking that this could go into a child’s lunch box. I think it could be a great little surprise. I filled mine with a few Starburst, but you could put whatever your kid likes.

The bag is a 2.5” x 4” Canvas Corp bag that I picked up from Hobby Lobby. I cut a strip of this stripped paper from the My Mind’s Eye  Miss Caroline Howdy Doody pad and punched it with my Fiskars Scallop Sentiment punch. I trimmed it to a little over a fourth of an inch and adhered it to the bottom and top of the bag with some Tombo Mono Multi glue.

I diecut a tag from Kraft cardstock and I stamped it with the plaid background from Coffee Backgrounds using Versamark ink. I stamped my sentiment from Celebrate Good Times with Early Espresso. I tied double bows with some Aqua Mist twill.

To decorate my bag, I diecut the ice cream cone from Kraft, Vintage Cream, and Sweet Blush cardstock. Before I adhered the pink scoop the the cream, I use my Crop-a-Dile to punch a hole through the top so I could thread my twine on it. The twine is from Martha Stewart. I love smaller twine for things like this, so I actually bought some from Liz’s Boutique on Sunday. She ships for free and I received my order today (Wednesday). Anyway, I wrapped it around the bag a few times and tied a simple bow.

I think it’s super cute, and these could also be used as party favors.

This wouldn't be a party w/o GIVEAWAYS!
