Treats to share

One of the great things about SU Convention is seeing all the fab ideas that Demonstrators come up with & share with others. Today's projects are a matching card & treat bag, which are based on some convention swaps my demo friend Leanne Dixon was lucky to receive at this year's convention. The treat bag is based on a fab swap by Sue Wdowic & the card is based on Cath Dickens lovely fresh cuts notes swap. I made these ones as a thank you for one of my lovely & very patient customers ('waving' at you Kim). The card is a Fresh-Cuts note. These have a flower design die cut out of the card front. I scalloped the card edge, attached some regal rose 'Patterns' DSP to the side of the card (from the level 1 Hostess only pack), then added a cute little pink pirouette felt flower & retired pink button ('stitched' with a very thin strip of regal rose cardstock) to the front. The greeting is a fave from 'Best Yet'.
To decorate this bag, I used the 'Polka Dot' background stamp, added some 'Patterns' DSP & a punched greeting from the gorgeous 'Best Yet' hostess only stamp set. Inside, I included a ribbon sampler of colours to match some of the goodies I know Kim has.
After making this set, I thought the treat bags would be perfect for some lucky door prizes at my open house, so I made some more & filled them with choccies & either a ribbon or brad sampler.For this one, I stamped a motif from 'Circle Circus', punched it out. I mounted it on another motif made with the scallop circle punch, as I thought it looked good with the eyelet border punch. The last 2 are pretty similar but I thought I'd show you them anyway. Check the supply list below for all the goodies I used.
Hope you liked these swaps as much as I did. Thanks again Sue & Cath for sharing them.
Back tomorrow with my favourite one of the treat boxes I made.
Warm & inky wishes

These are lovely. I love the quick simplicity of the Fresh Cuts card and will definitely be casing these. I need a quick present for a family member and I'm sure an array of these in different colours will be very much appreciated. Thanks for sharing.

I am coming to your blog about a month later, hopefully you'll read this comment.

I was wondering how you did that circle motif (you said you punched it with the scallop circle,but how) on your eyelet border bag?
