“The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The meaning of life is to give it away.”
I always was taught that the purpose of life is to love and be loved, but I liked the quote anyway. : ) And won’t these little treat bags be fun to give away! I watched a video on how to make them over on Angie Juda’s website, mychicnscratch.com. It starts with a 5″ x 10″ piece of cardstock, scored 1 1/4″ on both sides (portrait) and 4″ on both sides (landscape). The sentiment is from a brand new stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog, which goes live tomorrow, called “Mingle All the Way.” The bat is from a SU 2013 stamp set called “Halloween Hello.” The circle is punched from the 2 1/2″ circle punch and it’s base are two Labels Collection framelits glued together. (I didn’t have the Deco Label Framelits that Angie used). I also didn’t have any Cajun Craze ribbon to match the DSP (Designer Series Paper), so I used the Cajun marker and colored Pumpkin Pie ribbon. No one would ever know! (In the video Bermuda Bay and Tangerine Tango papers/ribbons/ink are used). The bat is raised up with a dimensional, as is the sentiment. The bag holds a Reeses peanut butter cup (the large square package) perfectly. (the sides of the bag are short).
