Hello Friends!

The weather is beautiful here in New Jersey and we’re being promised a great weather weekend.  It’s a much needed change for us. I hope you have some fun weekend plans and can also spend some time in your craft room!

One of my Mini Treat Bags is standing alone today.  This one happens to be my favorite and I thought I’d showcase it.  As promised, I put together a quick tutorial for the Mini Treat Bags.  The treat bag in the picture above is die cut from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit Dies.  They are a favorite and served me well over the years getting treat bags ready for my daughter’s students. I have a few of those favorites that will remain in their designated space in my craft room!

You can download the PDF by clicking the button below.  I hope you enjoy the tutorial and have fun designing your own treat bags.

So, grab your favorite DSP, make a few cuts, score a few lines and create something fun to fill and give!

…the only limitation is your imagination!
