Presents, Packages and ... cookies! - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the weekly Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!

You may have heard me say it before, one of my favorite things to create is a little gift package. I like to give chocolates, treats, gift cards or cookies! I love how cute and sweet they look. I love how quick they can be to create. I love how good it feels to make someones day. 

Stampin' Up! has the best product line for creating gift packaging. Check out the Tag a Bag products ...

Creating treat bags with the Tag a Bag line is quick & easy! Of course, I wanted to step it up a wee bit ... 

I used both styles of treat bags for these two projects. In fact, I was able to use just one Kraft bag for both projects. When I created the first pocket treat bag I had to trim about a 2" strip off of the top of the bag. When this scrap piece was sitting on my desk I was inspired to create a second treat bag using this scrap as a belly band! (You know that a stamper hates to waste a good scrap!).

I also busted out a couple of techniques when I created these treat bags. Both of the techniques I am super excited to share! Hold onto you seats!!!!!

I used a needle to help me separate the threads.
It did not take too long and the result was worth it!
I needed black for the design!

With this technique I used a black Sharpie,
but we all know that Sharpies are sold in a 
rainbow of fun colors! 

I hope that you have been inspired to use the Stampin' Up! Tag a Bag products to whip up your own little gifts!
