Birthday Treat Bag

Hi friends and HAPPY FRIDAY!!

It’s me Joann here today sharing a fun little treat bag that I created for my son’s upcoming birthday party! He is having a baseball themed party and turning the big 5 (oh man my heart hurts, he’s growing up way too fast for me)!

I started with a 11 x 3 1/2 sheet of cardstock and scored long ways at 4 1/4, 5 1/2, 9 3/4. I then took my CTMH Artiste Cartridge to cut my 5 and label (pg. 80) out of some White Daisy cardstock and used the Perfect Fit- Frames 2 Flair to stamp the coordinating image using some Cranberry Ink.

I wanted a little of a distressed look to a few images, so I used a little of the Cocoa Ink to distress my images. I added my sentiment using the Holiday Tags Occasions stamp set to stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment around my Custom TCP Flair (the sky is the limit with creating your own flair, something definitely worth checking out).

To finish off my treat bag, I glued all of my images, added the bag of Pop Rocks inside and simply took my mini attacher (or a stapler) to help hold the candy and to close the treat bag!

Well that’s all for today, hope you enjoyed this mini treat bag! Thanks again for stopping by!

Hi, thanks for stopping by!

Today I am sharing some fun treats! These will be great for classmates, students, and even coworkers. I received some personalized flair with the names of my kids from TCP etsy shop and used them to personalized some treats for Valentines.

Create amazing Valentine's using custom flair from
Here are the steps:
  • Start with a 3 1/2 x 4 piece of White Daisy cardstock
  • On the 3 1/2 inch side score at 1/2 and 3
  • Rotate clockwise and on the 4 inch side score at 7/8
  • After you have scored everything place your piece of cardstock where the 3 1/2 inch side is horizontal and the 4 inch side is vertical.
  • There will be two rectangles at the bottom left and right corner, take some scissors and remove those two sections.
  • I took my corner rounder and rounded the top corners and the bottom corner (the part that will fold up)

I took a background stamp and stamped the image to create my background and took the little heart from the CTMH Countdown stamp set to add in random places. I punched (2) 1 3/8 circles from someCranberry and Cotton Candy cardstock, (2) 1 1/4 circles from White Daisy cardstock and stamped an image using the CTMH Perfect Fit- Dad stamp set with some Cranberry and Cotton Candy Ink onto the White Daisy circles.

I layered them and added my beautiful personalized flair. Finishing them off by cutting some gold pieces of cardstock into banners and a cherry lollipop!
I hope you enjoyed today’s mini project. Thanks for stopping by!
