Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop Week 7: Treat Bag Toppers

I can't hardly believe this is the last week of the Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop. I think this week's die, Eileen's Treat Bag Toppers is the perfect die for last minute holiday gift giving! It's perfect for dressing up small bags for special treats. On this example, I used it on a small glassine bag filled with chocolates. It's dressed up with stamps from Papertrey Ink (Distressed Stripes and Tiny Treats: Christmas) as well as some fun baker's twine. I used my japanese screw punch to punch the holes in the matboard and just stamped away. Stamping on matboard is so effortless - matboard takes ink beautifully!


Here's another example of using a treat bag topper on a kraft tin tie bag. This clever die actually cuts three toppers at once - each one a different size for a variety of options. LOVE that! I quickly stamped the kraft bag with snowflakes (PTI's Peace Be Still) For this topper, I adhered some patterned paper with Sparkle Mod Podge for a fun & festive look. And just look at that fun scalloped edge - Eileen is so great about those fun details! The tag that is hanging is part of Eileen's die, as well. I used a few steps on that, stamping and embossing the JOY sentiment, then airbrushing the green background with a Copic marker. Next I used Sparkle Mod Podge again, then painted the edges with white acrylic paint. Add some silvery trim and you have a fantastic treat bag that will wow your recipient.
