MCT: What a Treat Wednesday

Hi, today is What a Treat Wednesday over on the My Creative Time blog. We are creating containers, treats and/or packagings with our My Creative Time stamps and dies! So I decided to make a "beary" cute treat bag topper.

I first stamped the adorable little bear from MCT: Beary Special Thoughts Stamps set. I masked the eyes and then used the eyes from Peachy Keen Stamps: Teddy Bear Face Assortment. I colored him in with Copic markers and then cut him out using MCT: Bear Dies. I love having these bear dies so you don't have to fussy cut them out anymore!! So thankful Emma created them!! Saves so much time!!

For the base of the topper, I used the largest rectangle from MCT: Rectangular Frame Dies to cut out The Paper Studio: heart pattern paper. I then scored it down the middle and folded it. I inked the edges with Memento: Rosebud Ink. 

I used MCT: Treat Slider Die to create the scallop strip in the middle of the topper. I had to cut two of them out to fit across. I then crisscrossed some pink and white American Crafts twine down the center of the strip. 

I stamped the sentiment also from MCT: Beary Special Thoughts Stamps set onto the labels from MCT: Rectangular Frames and More Dies.

I gave the cute little bear a heart balloon and added another little heart in the corner using the new MCT: Best Bots Forever Stamp Set. 

I added the Teddy Grahams to Celebrate It: 4.75 in x 6.75 in. Transparent Archival Bags and then adhered the bear toppers to them. Though I folded my bags down just a tad bit so I didn't have to fill them so full. 

Well that's my project!! I hope I inspired you to use your MCT dies and stamps in a fun new way!

Thank you so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a wonderful day!!
