More Tiny Treats

It is still Tiny Treats month here at Dreamweaver Stencils.  Here is my project.

With a different stencil, this little bag could be used for a wedding, baby shower, birthday, or even as a luminary with an artificial candle.  Here is how this one was made:

Small Bag (I got mine at the Dollar Tree 3 for $1)
Two Pieces of Scrap Card Stock
Self Healing Cutting Mat
Craft Knife
Glue (I used Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear)
May Arts Ribbon
Candy (I used Dove Caramel--yum)

1)  Place scrap card stock inside the bag to keep your drawing and cutting surface flat.
2)  Position stencil over the bag.

3)  Use the pen to trace around the stencil.

 You will see it very lightly.  Plus, it will have indented the paper a little like this.

 4)  Use the craft knife to carefully cut around lines.

 This is what it looks like cut out.

5)  Glue the acetate to the inside of the bag.

6)  Fill with whatever you like, and tie with a gorgeous May Arts Ribbon!

That was easy!  You could make a Tiny Treats project and send it to for your chance to win our monthly challenge.  If you want a little more inspiration, check out the rest of the blogs below.  Now, I am off to eat some Dove Caramel candies.......

Dream It up!
