CottageCutz Treat Bag



If you are need a cute treat bag to make, I've got one to share with you. When I saw the CottageCutz / Peachy Keen Shower Peepers die from The Scrapping Cottage, I knew what I wanted to make. I always think that shading my die cuts with distress ink adds so much more life to them - but on this little chick, I was having a hard time getting too much ink, so I added it a little different. I used my water pen, and picked up a little Scattered Straw ink for her body, and just a touch of Worn Lipstick for her cheeks. This gave me much more control, and a very light touch of ink. The face is so cute - it's a Peachy Keen stamp that comes with the set (actually you get three different faces so your little peeper can have different expressions).

If you want to make the gift bag, here's how:


The acrylic bubble that I used on the front of the bag is a Flower-Soft Display Globe, but you could also just use a flat piece of acrylic, and cut your opening to any size and shape that you would like.


Cut another strip of paper, 1" x 12" and attach to the sides for a handle. Use dimensional tape to attach your die cut.
