Quick Mini Gifts!

I love making cute treats to add to gifts or to give out for special occasions.  With the use of my Big Shot Machine, some punches, ink, stamps and candy of course, I was able to make some really quick, but cute candy treats.  I saw several other talented SU demonstrators make these bags, and everyone has such great ideas and I just wanted to share my version with you.

Just think of all of the possibilities.  For Christmas add a Christmas stamp, some red and green candy.  For a baby shower, pink or blue mints, a cute baby stamp.   I used Sticky Strip to adhere the Die Cut flowers and Pumpkin to the bag (bags from   Stampin' Up also offers clear Cellophane Bags in 3 sizes that are also great for treats, favors, and gifts.  Sizes are 3" x 5", 4" x 6", or 6" x 8".  So when you are looking to fill a larger gift bag, these work great too!

To make the gift bags I used the following:
Cardstock:  Basic Black #121045, Very Vanilla #101650, Chocolate Chip #102128, Pumpkin Pie #105117, Real Red #102482, Pear Pizzazz #119795, Brocade Blue (retired)
Ink:  Pumpkin Pie #105216, Real Red #103133, Brocade Blue (retired)
Markers:  Chocolate Chip #100071, Pear Pizzazz #119801 (In Colors Marker Pack)
Punches:  Scallop Circle #119854, 1 3/8" Circle #119873, Scallop Oval #119856
Stamp Sets:  Sincere Salutations #115068, Grateful Greetings #116511, Sock Monkey Accessories #111552
Ribbon:  Hemp Twine #100982
Accessories:  Big Shot Die Cut Machine #113439, Flower Daisies #2 Bigz Die #114520, Flower Folds Bigz xl Die #115970, Extended Cutting Pads #113478 (needed when cutting a Bigz xl Die), Sticky Strip #104294
