Treat Bags

I made this little snowman treat bags for my son to take to his co-workers. They are always playing gags on each other so we decided to make Snowman Poop bags. I filled the bags with a mix of white chocolate chips, yogurt covered raisins and yogurt covered peanuts. I cut the treat bag toppers using the Winter Frolic cartridge and one of the tags from that cartridge. These were resized on my Gypsy so I could cut them at 6" X 4 1/4" out of white card stock. The patterned paper is from the DCWV Christmas paper pack. I also used my Gypsy to resize these before cutting them. The snowman is also from the Winter Frolic cricut cartridge and was cut at 4". I used my Gypsy to hide the eyes, nose, and cheeks as I wanted to use my Peachy Keen Stamps on them as I had 20 of these to make. I colored the snowman's nose with an orange Bic Marker and added some pink rosy cheeks with a colored pencil. I printed out the little poem on my computer and inked the edges with Memento Summer Sky ink as well as the white layer of the snowman. There are several versions of the poem on the internet. The one I chose to use is:

I hear you've been naughty
so listen, hears the scoop
instead of coal this year
you're getting snowman poop.
I am submitting this project to the challenge on Paper Cutz Challenge blog. Thanks for stopping by.
