Groovy Love Treat Bag

Hi Stamping Friends!!!

For all of my Groovy Love Online Class members, I included a surprise little treat in their envelopes when I mailed their card kits.

Stamps: Groovy Love
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Stacked with Love DSP
Accessories: Mini Treat Bag Dies, Happy Heart EF, Sweetheart punch, Rhinestone Jewels, Black Grosgrain Ribbon (retired)

Here is a few pictures of how I created my bag:

After cutting out my bag, I used the "for you" Thinlit just to position my heart Thinlt. I removed the "for you" Thinlit before I ran it through my Big Shot.

Here is the heart cut out of the front of the bag.

These are the two pieces of the mini treat bag before gluing.

After folding the scored lines with a bone folder, I used liquid glue to attach the one side of the bag to the other.

I then glued the back of the bag closed.

Lastly I glued the bottom flap up.

After letting the glue dry completely, I ran the whole bag through my Big Shot with the Happy Hearts embossing folder. Then I decorated it. I love all the extra little Thinlits that come with the Mini Treat Bag Die. The little row of hearts is from the set, as is the heart and the "for you".

I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to fit inside and attach my Groovy Love heart so it fit perfectly inside the front heart cut out.

I had a lot of fun making these and they are super easy. Each bag uses only one sheet of card stock. Would be great for a gift card too.

I best get back to getting ready for my weekend of stamping. Hoping to take some photographs this afternoon of all the cards we will be making.

Thanks for stopping by!!
Stamp something!
