Treats just for you!

Made these cute treat bags using the lawn fawn candy bag die. Amuse studio has one very similar without the cut out for the handle. I added a die cut tree from amuse studio, stamped with the word Joy from Amuse studio's December Stories stamp set.

Here I filled it with all sorts of fun items for my stamp club group. The K-cup was stamped with a snowman face I had in my stash of stamps.

I made several of these cute cards for a few friends of mine. I love Lawn Fawn stamps and snowmen so this was meant to be in my stash of stamp sets. The cardstock is from amuse studio along with the sentiment from Flaky Friends.

Inside sentiment with a punched red heart says it all to my friends.

Lawn Fawn Stamp set has matching dies too!

Treat bag

What a great treat for your friends. We made this at Sylvia's card class on Monday.
So easy...stamp and emboss the deer and add your sentiment. Attach the white pennant to the gold glittered one, add some sequins and a red nose to the deer. We put a large and yummy cookie inside of the treat bag before closing it with the glittered clothespin. Perfect for the upcoming holidays!
