I love the idea of packaging your own little treat bags together, but I've never bothered to do it. Until now! I had salvaged the small clear bags from the Studio G stamps, thinking they might come in useful in the future. First, I stamped some retro flakes (gelatins) in white stazon all over the packaging. Then I filled the bag up with 2 different blue jelly beans. I had to make a topper too, so I measure the the top of the bag (there's a hanger space, but they were never hung at Michaels). The topper measures 2-1/8x 2-13/16, then it is folded in half. I stamped the letters s,n, and w from my Groovy alphabet (also gelatins), then punched out another retro flake (which was perfectly sized for my 3/4 circle punch) for the "o". The word "treats" is from my snap stamps. I thought about it afterwards and realized icy treats might've been a better name, but then I wouldn't have been able to use a snowflake as an o! I wish my photograph could do this justice, it really is quite adorable, and there's something kind of fun about being to hold something in your hand and crinkle it.
