...Crazy 4 Treat Containers

Happy Saturday, everyone! It's time for another challenge from our Crazy Girls! We are simply loving the challenges that have been posted this month by our fellow team member, Joanne Grzelak...and this week's is no different! Our submissions today will be utilizing Treat Containers of all kinds...wanna see mine?

I created a sweet and simple treat bag for my Homemade Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies! I started with a Glassine Bag, then stamped the small snowflake from Verve's "Christmas in the Air" set in Bermuda Bay Ink. I folded the top of the bag over once, then used my Janome Sewing Machine to seal the fold. The sentiment (from the same Verve set) was stamped in Jet Black Staz-On Ink onto a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock.

I created the snowflake accent by cutting some Whisper White Cardstock with my Spellbinders' Create A Flake One Nestabilities Dies and my Big Shot. I left the papers in the dies after they were cut, then sponged some Bermuda Bay Ink onto the exposed surfaces using a Sponge Dauber. The pieces were removed from the dies, Mono Multi Liquid Glue was added to the sponged portions, then some Chunky Glitter was added for some sparkle.

I layered the snowflake using several Dimensionals, then added a Button and Silver Cording to the top using Mini Glue Dots. A piece of Bermuda Bay Dotted Ribbon was tied around the top of the bag, and the snowflake was attached to it using more Mini Glue Dots.
Now let's see what the rest of the ladies have in store for you today:
That's it for today...thanks for stopping by! It's your turn to create your very own treat container, and share it with us. Be sure to add your creation to Mister Linky back at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog post...we can't wait to see what you come up with! Until later...

Mercy, instead of saying CAS I think it should be CEB (Clean, Elegant and Beautiful) I actually hate that term CAS because for me there is nothing Simple about that gorgoeus style (that I CAN"T do!!) Anyway, what I am trying to say is I love your beautiful creation! :-)Traci
