Snowman Magic Christmas Mini Treat Bag. Stamping Inkspirations July 2022 Blog Hop

 Good Evening Everyone

Today I'm blog hopping with the fabulous Stampin Inkspirations group and we have a fabulous Hop for you today. The theme that has been set has been a different one to normal. We had a choice of TWO Colour combinations to choose from. So, it's a Christmas theme - but do you prefer Cold Christmas, or Warm Christmas?

I chose the Cold Weather Christmas option, as we live in England, It's Usually cold at Christmas - plus I really do love this colour combination.

I've made some really cute gift bags which measure only 3" x 2" x 3/4", so I am sure you could make it work to hold a variety of other goodies. You can get 6 holders from one sheet of 12x12" card stock - so great to make for favours, teachers gifts etc.

Take a piece of Card stock that measures 6 x 3 3/4" and place it in the simply scored.

Score on the long side at 1/2" , 1 1/4", 3 1/4" & 4". Turn 90 degrees onto the short side, making sure you have you direction pointing left and score at 3". This score line will be creating the base section.

Bring in your snips and hold the card stock horizontal with the score line towards to bottom, cut up all the score lines and notch into the square sections. Remove the skinny rectangle  on the lower left hand corner and notch into the long thin tab. See below:-

Stamp the first large rectangle from the right with a snowflake from the Yeti Party stamp set in the same colour as your card stock.

Add tear and tape to the skinny left hand rectangle and fold together to create the bag. Tuck in the flaps at the bottom, then add tear and tape to the front flap and seal the bottom closed.

Pinch in the top and secure with a clip to close - I didn't have anything from our catalogue which was current, so I used these retired mini bulldog clips.

On scraps stamp the snowman image in memento ink, the hat in Soft Succulent and the scarf in Cherry Cobbler. Cut all these out with the coordinating dies and you mini cut & emboss machine. Also cut out some arms in early espresso card. Assemble your snowman - adding a face to the head. 

Also stamp the sentiment in early espresso ink and fussy cut the words Sending, Christmas and wishes. Arrange these words and the snowman to the front of your box.

I hope you enjoyed today's project, please continue through the hop by visiting Leonie next..
