Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and lots of chocolate is given out that day. I thought I'd make a cute little treat bag just for that. I apologize in advance for the bad lighting in the picture today, but I had to take this one inside my hotel room while at CHA, and well, the lighting in there was terrible. I gave one of these to each one of the ladies that worked in the Lindy's Stamp Gang Booth at CHA. Inside the bag where some yummy Valentine's day themed M&Ms.
I used crackle medium on the dress form, which I painted using Making Memories Acrylic Paint in the color Butterscotch. I sprayed some Lindy's Stamp Gang Scintilating Silver Glitz Spritz on the mini rose. The seam binding was from Martha Stewart, and the design paper I used is from the My Mind's Eye Laundry Collection. To seal the burlap together, I used my trusty hot glue gun, and in a few minutes I had a super cute treat bag. Closed it with velcro on the top and added a sentiment to the front, which I stamped in Chestnut Roan Colobox Chalk ink, using the TPC Studio Sewing themed stamp set I bought at Joann's.
Again, I'm so sorry for the bad lighting on this picture, but I just had no time before I needed to hand these out. I did make a video about it, which might give you a better idea of the colors and how the bag opens and closes. You can watch that below. Hope you enjoyed!
