My Creative Time: What A Treat Wednesday

Hi and today is What A Treat Wednesday over on the My Creative Time blog. I created a fun little cherry gummy treat bag with my some fabulous MCT products. 

To create my treat bag topper, I first used the die from the Just A Note Stamp Set. I wanted to add a sentiment at the bottom of it but it wouldn't simply fit with the size of the original die cut. So with a little patience, I slowly cut out the one side and partially the other side. Then I moved the die and cut the length that I wanted. This created the perfect treat topper for my bag. 

I filled my little treat bag that I purchased at Wal-Mart with this delicious cherry dummies that I found at Hy-Vee and stapled my little topper onto the top of the bag before decorating it. I only got one staple in unfortunately because my little mini stapler finally decided to break after all these years. It was a sad day.

I then stamped and colored the adorable little cherries from the Berry Special Stamp Set.  I cut them out with a coordinating die. I'm mean, how cute are those little cherries? Love this set and the little faces!! I also added a bit of Glossy Accents to the eyes, mouth, and cheeks. 

I created the background layer for the cherries with a beautiful red Bunch of Stitched Doily Die cut as well as a white Bunch of Fun Circle Die cut. I added it to the front of the topper and then stamped on the sentiment, also from the Berry Special Stamp Set. I then tied a little bit of American Crafts twine to the topper and added a cute little heart that was cut out using the heart glasses die from the You Had Me At Meow Stamp Set. I glittered the heart up with Wink of Stella and then added some Glossy Accents on top.

I finished the little treat topper by adding some cute little sequins and now its ready to sweeten someone special's day.
