Happy Thursday! It's time for another 4 Crafty Chicks challenge, and this week's hostess, Nance, has given us a great "twist"… HOLIDAY TREATS! I decided to go the "gift route", I LOVE making giftie goodies like this. I used some Reverse Confetti goodies and made a goodie package for Hot Cocoa!
Earlier this year I was gifted the SWEET HOLIDAY stamp set, isn't it just so stinking cute?!? It has coordinating dies, which I do not have, but ordered last night, lol!
I colored my little Gingerbread House with Copics and added some liquid pearls on the roof and door frame. The trees are also colored with Copics and I added teeny rhinestones for the ornaments…those are stinking heavy trees! lol
The sentiment is also from the set and absolutely perfect for gift giving! I paired up that cute set with the BAGS & TAGS CREATOR dies.
So here's the package minus the contents… it's a little easier to see the details. I used the "bag" dies and cut 2 of my patterned paper. On the front piece I also used the stitched square window die…gives you a little peak of the hot cocoa packets. Since I didn't have the coordinating dies for the stamp set, I just hand cut them, then added them with pop dots. Now I wanted a good size bag so I could fit in all of the goodies, so instead of attaching those 2 pieces, I cut out a rectangle of my paper and used that as the bottom… scoring it where needed and then adhering it to each die cut bag piece.
See how much space I have? Everything fit perfectly inside! The marshmallows I added in this package were the super ginormous ones, had I used normal size bag dies alone would have been great for the package (meaning I wouldn't have needed to cut the extra rectangle). I used some ribbon and threaded it through 4 holes to hold the bag together and tied a bow in the front. Then I just hung the tag from that bow.
Here's the backside, nearly as pretty as the front! The contents were a couple of packets of one of our favorite "non-homeade" cocoa's, a couple of jumbo marshmallow's, and a couple of Pirouette's to stir.
And don't forget to link up your creation at the Hen House!
