My Favorite Things–Treat Bag Topper Kit Day 2!

Hello again!!

I’m back today to share two more projects for this month’s Treat Bag Topper Kit! I’m having a blast creating different bags for different occasions because this kit is so stinkin’ versatile!  All you have to do is add your own stamps and dies from your stash to create an awesome gift or treat bag!

My first project features the shark image from the Beach Buddies Stamp Set and coordinating dies.  I die cut the Treat Bag Topper Die-Namics from some Summer Splash Card Stock and some Blueberry Card Stock.  I used the Ocean Waves Die-Namics to die cut the two flaps from the Blueberry topper die cut, and I adhered them onto the Summer Splash die cut with foam squares.  I stamped the shark image from the Beach Buds Stamp Set onto some Cement Gray Card Stock with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, heat embossed him with white embossing powder, and then die cut him out with the coordinating Beach Buds Die-Namics.  I adhered him between the waves with a thin foam square.  I stamped the sentiment from the Beach Buds Stamp Set onto the waves with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I tied some blue baker’s twine to the handle for a final finishing touch.  I filled the bag with three colors of Jelly Bellies and some gold fish crackers, and thought this would be fun for a shark-themed birthday party or an old fashioned movie night where you show the original “Jaws” movie! Or how about a favor for a Shark Week party?!

My second project was designed with Teacher Appreciation Week in mind.  If you have students in your house, you know how important it is to show those teachers how much you and your kids appreciate them!  I die cut the Treat Bag Topper Die-Namics from some Poppy Card Stock.  I stamped the super hero cat image from the Super Cat Stamp Set onto some copic friendly white card stock using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, colored her in with my Copic markers, and die cut her using the coordinating Super Cat Die-Namics.  I stamped the cityscape image and the sentiment from the You’re Super Stamp Set onto the topper die cut using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I stamped the word “teacher” from the Soda Pop Stamp Set using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, and then I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered the super hero cat to the treat topper with foam squares, and tied on some blue baker’s twine as a finishing touch.  I filled the bag with a sweet fill-in-the-blanks book that your student can write in to tell their teacher how much he or she means to your child (I found the book at Paper Source.)

All of the MFT products that I used are listed and linked below (although the new product links won’t be live until the products are released.)
