Do you need office or teacher gifts? This treat wrap is a super fun project. I have several versions to share with you this week. For all my treat wrap bags I used an Accucut die to create the wrap. But you can create your own using your diecuts and a little ingenuity. What I love about this wrap is that after the recipient devours the candy they have a beautiful ornament left for their tree. For this on I used a 4"Darice Snowflake (They can be purchased in sets of ten snowflakes at Michael's). I used a distressed ink pad to give it a vintage feel. Then I sprayed it with V2 Vellum adhesive from Helmar and sprinkled it with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Art Glitter from the Art Institute to give it back it's sparkle.
For the red layer I diecut the smallest Poinsettia die and adhere Gala Glitz Glitter to just the portion of the tips that extended beyond my center image. If you haven't played with this chunky glitter with beads and sharred glass you are in for a real treat. I love it!! The center image was stamped using just the center Snowfake Image from A Merry Little Christmas. I used my scalloped SU Punch to punch the image and then accent the scalloped design with more Crystal Glitter as well as highlighting the interior of the stamped snowflake. For the mat layer I used a larger Su punch and highlighted those scallops with a Krylon Gold Leafing Pen. For my sentiment for the treat wrap I stamped the Merry Christmas to you sentiment from the A Merry Little Christmas Stamp Set. Using my SU punch, I punched out the image and sprayed it with V2 Vellum Adhesive and added more Crystal Art Glitter. I let it dry for a few seconds and then used my finger to gently rub off the excess glitter so that my sentiment was readable. Of course this also meant that I would personally be glittered as well. But then again what would the Holidays be without a little glitter -Right!! The beaded snowflake accent is from Jolee's.
Stop back in tomorrow to see my other Treat Wrap designs.
