Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps. This week, the challenge is: No Tricks, Just Treats (Treat Holder or card--Halloween or otherwise).
And here is what I created:here.) Since it has Christmas in the title, the favors had to be Christmas themed, of course! I found this idea on Pinterest and set about creating my own. I started with small kraft sandwich bags and splatted them with watered down white craft paint. After they dried, I flipped them over (and upside down) and used my mini MISTI to stamp "I'm so glad there's you" along the top edge that would get folded down. Using the MISTI made it so easy to get the stamp lined up properly and to stamp multiple bags quickly. I purchased the wooden snowflakes on Amazon; they came with the twine, I just had to tie it onto the top of the ornaments. Unfortunately, they seem to be out of stock right now. I punched two holes through all the layers of the flap using the sentiment as a guide. To finish it off (after filling with goodies, of course!) I tied on the snowflake using some red, dotted grossgrain ribbon. I have a lot of the elements left over, so they will probably be making an appearance with some yummy treats come Christmas time.
