Christmas treat bags for Day 4

Cenital view of personalized treat bags for My Favorite Things.

Hello again! The MFT September Release Countdown continues and I’m back with some cute Christmas treat bags for Day 4.

I thought they would be perfect for showcasing the awesome new Personalized Tags Die-namics dies… So I grabbed the Paper Bag Treat Box Die-namics, my Scor-Tape and some card stock (Electric Red, Natural and Primitive White) and went to work…

After I was done assembling the treat bags, I started decorating them in different ways…

I stamped the first one with the two snowflakes from the Joyous Holidays set (showcased tomorrow) and Kraft Premium Dye Ink. It would have been easier to do before assembling it, but I managed by inserting a deck of cards in the bag.

I also die cut my daughter’s name with the Personalized Tags Die-namics out of Gold Sparkle and Smooth White card stock. I stacked them with some matte glue to make them sturdy and reusable. Finally I threaded them with some rustic jute string and wrapped the around my bag.

I treated the die cut letters for the second bag in the same way. In hindsight… they would have looked even better in some patterned paper.  Lastly, I  decorated the treat bag with one of the snowmen from the adorable BB Present Time stamp set.

For the third bag I didn’t use any stamps at all. I die cut one of the birds from the Holly Jolly Cardinals Die-namics set in two tones of red card stock. Then I drew a little black stain around its eye to make it look more like a real cardinal. I also added Glossy Accents to its eye and beak.

It looked too simple without a background, so I added some white dots with a gel pen and a snow slope, die cut with one of the dies from the Outside the Box Snow Drifts Die-namics.

I hope you liked my project for today. Have you already visited the MFT Blog for more info about the release and more inspiration from the DT? By the way, HERE’s another gift bag, featuring a PI stamp. See you tomorrow! ^_^
