Sweet Treats – TKJ #151

Sweet Treats – TKJ #151

Debbie TKJ #151 (2)For this week’s ‘Something New’ challenge at The Kraft Journal, I tried my hand at making a little goodie treat bag to give to visitor’s during the holiday season … the ‘new’ twist was a chocolate covered spoon I included in my {sweet treat} bags!  I  began with a Medium Cello Bag into which I added a packet of Peppermint Hot Chocolate, a candy cane and a chocolate covered spoon which I  wrapped in cellophane and secured with Red Baker’s Twine.  Next, I  added a row of Red & White Polka Dot Washi Tape onto the bottom of a Small Glassine Bag.   I die cut a snowflake shape from a piece of Brown Kraft Cardstock and then folded it over the top of the Glassine Bag and wrapped some Red Baker’s Twine around the treat bag a couple of times, securing it with a bow and a tag which she stamped “Sweet Treats” on using the Little Wishes and Ho Ho Ho sets from Paper Sweeties.

Debbie TKJ #151 (3)I secured the top of my {sweet treat} gift bag with a length of Natural Hemp Cording and tied on a tag made using a Blackboard Tag and added a die cut snowflake stamped with a sentiment from the Have a Holly Jolly Holiday stamp set, a Red & White Chenille Candy Cane and a couple of fun silver jingle bells!

Debbie TKJ #151 (1)I am hosting a card class, cookie exchange and card exchange event at my house this evening and I made one of these sweet treat bags for each attendee!  I love giving handmade from the heart gifts to family and friends all year long, but especially during the holidays!
