A little bag that will delight inside and out

Good evening :)  I hope the day has treated you well.

I'm back this evening with something a little different .... it's a treat bag.  Mmmmmm yummy.  What a perfect idea to fill with little cookies, chocolates, nuts or lollies.  You could even put little tubes of moisturiser, perfumes, toys or whatever you like.  I like this idea as an alternative to gift wrapping and up the top you could even put "To....." and "From....." to turn that part into the card/gift tag.

I cut it from a 12x12 piece of cardstock and it measures approx 11cm along the bottom and 15cm high.  The width is about 6cm but because it is flexible you could fit quite a lot of goodies in there.  I popped a zip lock bag filled with lollies for demonstration purposes .... but as soon as I had taken the photos I ate them!

I used the absolutely delightful Lil Victorian Evie from Tickled Pink Stamps and coloured her in copics and of course spica pen.

As you can see I embossed the cardstock with my cuttlebug (before assembling).  I was suprised how easy this was!  It's a winner in my book and I will be using it come Christmas, Easter and other festive times.  Oh the possibilities ... you could use it for baby showers, weddings etc.

Anyway ... here it is
 Hard to get a good picture.....
 The embossing on top looks lovely I think.
 I really like the Christmas decoration embossing.
 This is the back of the bag ... I supposed I could have cut another circle so you could see the goodies through there also but I though it would make it a bit flimsy and I also wanted the decorations to be seen.
Sorry about the glare .. but this is it before I popped the bag of lollies in ... or maybe it was after I ate them :)
