Snow Treats

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.


  1. What a great baggie and topper. But isn't it the wrong season for those snowflakes? I am getting ready to hit the beach later today.

  2. Hey Natasha...Great idea! Glad I still have all those little bags the clear stamps came in. Thanks for sharing your creativity.


  3. Neat idea! I saved those packages as well. I thought they'd make nice atc envelopes- I like your idea better!
