Love You Lots - Mini Treat Bags

Hello and welcome. Today's creations have been based on the Global Design Project #74 - Sketch Challenge. Rather than make a card, I thought I'd make a different project and use the Mini Treat bag Thinlits dies set. Not only are these such a cute treat bag to use and make it's also perfect for the layout challenge. I also wanted to incorporate the gorgeous designer series paper from Occasions and Sale-A-Bration and the treat bags shows off both the front and the inside of the patterned dsp very well.

I have made 4 different styles and designs to suit the 4 different critters from the "Love You Lots" set. It's a hostess set that you can earn with Stampin' Rewards.

Here are the 4 mini treat bags: 

I find all the critters so adorable and have used a particular patterned paper to suit each one and the coordinating sentiment. All the images have been coloured in with copics and stamped with Memento Tuxedo black as it's copic friendly.

Here are a close of each one...

Both the elephants and mouse are so cute. Fussy cut out and placed the mouse on top of the elephant for added cuteness as well as looking at the sentiment. Clear wink of Stella added for extra shine. Patterned paper is from Cupcakes and Carousels paper stack. 

Clear glossing accents have been applied to the the cute frog to add dimension and shine. The green frog becomes the main focus in this  simple black and white linear background. 
Patterned paper used is from Inside the Lines DSP can earn free with a purchase of $90.
The use of vellum is perfect and allows you to still see the gorgeous dsp.

Clear glossy accents used on the cute ladybugs and the spotted patterned paper from Sending Love DSP is perfect for colour and theme.

These two cute hedgehogs are just the sweetest in the set. They have been coloured in with Copics and added Wink of Stella for added shine in the end.
Patterned paper used is from Carried Away DSP - can earn free with a purchase of $90.

I hope you have enjoyed these projects and found inspiration. The Mini Treat Bags Thinlits is just a fun set to use and has all the coordinating dies to embellish each treat bag with accents of your choice.

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope to see you next time. Happy Crafting! :)
