Hi Doodlebug fans -up on the blog today I am sharing with you my Sweet Things project. I just love Valentines Day -mostly because it's a holiday that is filled with fun candies and sweets to give to people you love so I thought that it would be fun to do some treat bag toppers featuring all the darling icons and papers from the Sweet Things collection.
Let me give you a little tutorial on how you can make a batch of these for your own.
First gather up your supplies. I am using snack size Ziploc bags to hold my treats and they measure about 6 1/2 inches by 3 1/4 inches. For the base I cut a piece of cardstock 4 inches by 6 1/2 inches. I also used a piece of pattern paper from the 6x6 paper pad. I cut the pattern paper 1 3/4 x 6 inches.
I also used one of my favorite sheets of pattern paper from the collection - It is called Sweet Nothings and it has these awesome sentiment strips on them that I used for the sentiments for my toppers.
Then I gathered up some icon stickers, fancy frills and other various embellishments to decorate the toppers.
To make the base, score the 4 x 6 1/2 inch piece of cardstock at 2 inches on the 4 inch side.
Icon Sticker Sheet, a chevron Fancy Frill, a clothespin with some white and gray bakers twine and a Heart from the Shapes Sprinkles pack.
