Coming back to today’s tutorial now….
We often give out gifts to kids for birthdays or even as birthday return gifts.
How about making environment-friendly treat bags to give these gifts.

MAIN.jpg

 
Today, I am going to show you how to make pretty treat bags using two
stamp sets – Hogs & Kisses and Peek-a-boo.

Here’s a look at the completed treat bags!

MAIN.jpg

 
po.png
  • A4 sized colored papers
  • Stamp sets (Peek-a-boo and Hogs & Kisses)
  • Archival ink
  • Zig clean markers (or your choice of colors)
  • Scrap papers
  • Satin ribbon/twine
  • Foam adhesive
 
Possible image 1
A step-by-step pictorial guiding you in making your own treat bags.
so lets begin…

step1

1.jpg

 
I took an A4 size paper. 
(The paper size would depend on the size of your gift.)
Folded half-inch margin at one edge.
Folded the remaining paper into half.

 
step2

Folded /Scored half an inch at the one end of this folded paper
and one and a half inch at the other end. 

2.jpg
step3
 Opened the sheet and cut the marked parts. 
 
3.jpg
step4
 
On cutting/trimming the marked parts, you get a sheet with scored sides.
 
4.jpg
step5
 I took Archival ink and my favorite stamp sets.
I took two images from the stamp set and stamped the images randomly all over the sheet (rotating the image randomly) Let the ink dry before the next step.

step6
Here, I have used different colored papers to make the treat bags. You can also use a white sheet and lightly color these stamped images. 
 
5.jpg
step7
 
Once the ink dried, I adhered the adhesive tape to the two margins on the sheet. Peeled open the tape and assembled the treat bag by bringing in the sides together. The one and a half inch margin remain open as it is the lid/cover of the treat bag.  Repeated the process with all the three bags.

6.jpg
And the treat bags are ready…. 
 
7.jpg
step8
To decorate the treat bags….
On a watercolor card-stock, I stamped the critters from the Hogs and Kisses stamp set, using Archival ink. Colored the critters with zig markers and fussy cut them. 
 
8.jpg
step9
Cut tags from scrap pieces of CS. 
Assemble the tag using the fussy-cut critters and the sentiments. 
 
9.jpg
step10
Now fill the treat bags, tie a ribbon/twine around it to close it. 
Tie the tag along with the ribbon/twine.

Altered Pot by DT Member

anushree

Today I have a quick inspiration for the current Craftyscrappers challenge.
I have made this lovely pot using my mixed media skills and Craftyscrappers products.
Let me share a picture of it before sharing the procedure and material.

 

anushree

  • I took a simple pot and painted it with gesso all over.
  • Once the gesso dried,I sprayed the pot with bitter lemon shimmer spray from Craftyscrappers and let it dry again.
  • I have stamped some pots and succulents from Craftyscrappers stamp set
    “I am stuck on  you” with Black archival Ink.
  • I have painted these using ranger enamel accents to uplift the coloring,some places I have also colored with archival inks as they are waterproof inks.
  • Then I took some frosting powder and added  little bitter lemon shimmer spray to it and mixed it well.
  • On the top of the pot , I applied this colored frosting powder with the help of matt medium.Bottom I have added some inka gold effect.

This is the first time i have used fun foils
To create both of my projects i have used, the
SIZZLING SILVER fun foil.

 

SIZZLING SILVER
these fun foils are super shiny and are of professional grade .
They work well with any lamination machine available,
if you want to heat transfer using these super shiny foils or
they can also be used with Big shot and Cuttlebug machines, where you do not need heat to transfer the foils… which is great!!! since many of us do not have lamination machines at home, Craftyscrappers also have launched, the fun foil glue, that works perfectly with these fun foils.They come in 16 gorgeous colors to chose from as well.

 

 

Then i also used the amazing and one of a kind shimmer paste, that stand out from the rest of the products in the market.
The shimmer pastes that i used for the projects are

 

 

IMAG2797
SHIMMER PASTE-BUTTER

and

IMAG2783
SHIMMER PASTE-TICKLED. 


These shimmer pastes add a fabulous layer of shimmer and shine to any craft project  and you can use any kind of stencils with these shimmer paste to create beautiful sparkling details and add the touch of beauty to any card, scrapbook or mixed media.
The best thing about them is that these can be used on paper, cardboard,chipboard,acetate, wood, glass,mdf,fabric and even on layered stencils.
These shimmer paste r so smooth and so shiny… that i love to work with it and the results are super-duper awesome.


To create my artwork. i have also used the
shimmer sprays.
The shimmer sprays that i have used for my projects are :



GRAPE JUICE(CS-SSP-04)_677x768
SHIMMER SPRAY-GRAPE JUICE

AND

 

SWEET PUMPKIN(CS-SSP-09)_696x768
