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.
That's it for me, be sure to check out what the rest of the Chicks have been up to,
And don't forget to link up your creation at the Hen House!
