Christmas Treats

Hello Everyone! I just received my Stampin' Up order and had to play with a new stamp set. I wanted to create cute treat bags, so set about measuring, scoring and punching paper.

 I cut two pieces of Gumball Green cardstock to 5 1/2 x 2 7/8.  I scored each piece 1/2 inch up from what will be the bottom of the treat holder.  Then, fold the score lines and adhere the 2 one half inch flaps together (I used Scor Tape).  I did not overlap the two flaps completely; I only overlapped about 1/4" of the flaps.  I cut a white panel, leaving about 1/4" smaller than the green cs on all sides.  I embossed the lower portion of the white panel with the polka dot ef then adhered it to the green cs.  Punch the handle through all 3 layers of cs-one white layer and 2 green layers.
 You can now embellish your treat holder however you would like.  I used WaterColor Winter and Morning Post Numbers along with the coordinating Deco Labels Collection Framelits. Then, LOTS of glitter, which is something I do not do too often!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week!
