Stampin’ Up! Hang Your Stocking Mini Treat Bags

Today I have a couple of Mini Treat Bags using the Hang Your Stocking Bundle, all ready to stuff with some goodies.  I hadn’t used the Mini Treat Bags Thinlets in a while and decided to pull them out and create something.  


Mini Treat Bags


If you are looking for a great little bag that comes together quickly and that you can decorate in any way your heart desires, this one is it!  The Mini-Treat Bag Thinlets have been around for a while, and I see why, they are really versatile.  I also love the Hang Your Stocking bundle for Christmas this year, so I pulled it out to decorate the fronts of these bags.  

I used Mint Macaron card stock for the actual bags, and decorated them with one of the snowflake stamps from Hang Your Stocking.  They were stamped randomly onto the fronts with Mint Macaron ink, then I went over them with Wink of Stella.  The snow flakes are sparkling, but you cannot tell in the photo!

Mini Treat Bag

I used a sentiment from Tin of Tags for this mini treat bag, stamping it in Emerald Envy ink.  The holly and berries are from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set and are stamped in Emerald Envy and Cherry Cobbler inks.  For the banner, I used some Presents and Pinecones DSP and the Banners Framelits to die cut it.  


Mini Treat Bag

For this mini treat bag, I die cut Noel with the Christmas Stocking Thinlets Dies and carefully added dots of liquid glue to attach it to the bottom.  I used a Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker to create stitching for the heel and toe of this stocking.  The frame was die cut with a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits with a plain oval of Cherry Cobbler behind the DSP.  

Card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of the post along with the products used.
