You're the Best!

I made this cute little box with my class last night. They loved it! This was their first experience with the A Muse Studio products and the products were a big hit! Especially the inks - great coverage and great colors!

The papers were a hit too. Isn't this polka dot paper cute??? And, it makes the most adorable little bag!  So, how do you make this little treat holder? Start with a 8.5" X 5.5" piece of cardstock (half of an 8.5"X11" sheet). Score the 8.5" side at 2", 4", 6" and 8". Turn 90 degrees and score at 2". cut out the corner flap (1/2" x 2" piece). Cut the 2", 4", 6" and 8" score lines to the 2" score line. Fold all your flaps and assemble. Push the top part of the "bag" together and punch two holes. Thread some of the yummy grosgrain ribbon through the holes and there you go! The great thing is that you can make this bag any size - just increase the dimensions. :)

If you want to add a tag, you can use a spellbinder Labels 1 shape as I did, or you can cut a shape with a punch. Stamp your graphic sunflower and then add the sentiment. Now, here is my favorite part!!! Take the FABULOUS Sakuro Quickie Glue Pen and color the edges. The glue will be blue while it's wet but turns clear when its dry. While the glue is wet, dip the edge of the label into the a*muse diamond glitter (love it!) and in moments it will be dry and you'll have a wonderful glittery edge to your tag. I can't wait to do this to Christmas tags!!! By the way - did you notice that half my tag doesn't have glitter? I took the pic before class. I left half glitter free so I could demo the glue pen. :)

To finish your project, punch a hole with your crop-a-dile, thread the grosgrain ribbon through and voilĂ ! A special little treat holder! I used paper from my starter kit so the work table was covered with bags in all different colors. so cute!!! I should have taken a picture!

Have a wonderfully creative day!
