30 Days of Giving Blog Hop Day 5!

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for following along on this 30 day blog hop that Jill at The Scrapoholic is hosting! We have had 5 awesome projects up until this point and today is my day to share with you! :-)

For my projects, I decided to make some cute little treat bags that I like to give out as thanks or for any occassion. I used the Archiver's line of small bags which measured at 5 x 3 3/4 and cut a piece of white jewel toned Recollections paper at 4 4/3x3 1/2. I then used ribbon from Michael's $1 bin (it had been clearanced out!) and a paper flower that I made out of 4 scalloped circles. (Instructions (and video) on how to make the paper flowers are a few posts down!) The little tag was cut out and welded on my Gypsy and I used some Thank you stamps from Michaels.

The little candy holder was made from the same Recollections paper. (I'm so sorry, I forgot to write the measurements for the paper!) What you want to do is cut out a rectangle, then score two lines to form the middle pocket. Fold the flaps over and cut the edge down diagnally. Adhere some brads, red paper for the middle liner add some ribbon and of course, your candy! These make cute little gift favors for any occasion!

Thank you for letting me share my little gift bags with you! Cannot wait to see what tomorrow's project will be! :)
