Autumn Mini Treat Bag Thank You

There is always someone to thank and be grateful for having in your life.  Make this fun little Mini Treat Bag and put something in it to show you care.
Thanks Mini Treat BagSUPPLIES:
Stamps:  A Little Something  Wood #132827, Clear #139830
Perpetual Calendar  Photopolymer #137167
Ink:  Tangerine Tango
Cajun Craze
Card Stock:  So Saffron
Pumpkin Pie

Big Shot:  Mini Treat Bag Thinlits #137547

1/8″ Circle Punch #134365
Other:  Expressions Natural Elements #138395
Metallic Gold Baker’s Twine
Fast Fuse or Tear & Tape Adhesive
Tombow Glue

1.  Cut out your Mini Treat Bag from So Saffron card stock cut at 6″ x 11″.  Fold all tabs.  You can either stamp now or later.  I wish I would have stamped after step 3 when the Treat Bag was assembled and the Belly Band was on, OR that I would have stamped over the fold lines.
2.  Assemble by attaching the back flap to the front with adhesive.  Then connect the center back with adhesive.  Last fold up the bottom flap and attach with adhesive.
3.  Cut your Cajun Craze Belly Band at 1-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Center in the front and fold both sides back.  Attach the back sides together with adhesive.  Stamp now if desired.
4.  Use Tombow to attach your “Thanks” to the Belly Band.
5.  Stamp “Grateful for you” in Cajun Craze ink on Pumpkin Pie card stock.  Punch out with the Label Bracket Punch.  Punch a 1/8″ hole at the top and thread your Baker’s Twine through the hole, around the Belly Band, and then back through the hole.  Tie your bow.  Adjust the position of the Baker’s Twine and Label Bracket tag.
6.  Add some goodies or a fun little gift and give to someone special.

Happy Gift Giving!
