Adorable Goodie Bags

It's almost the 10th of the month which means if you are going to order Paper Pumpkin, now is the time!  Last month, we received a kit with 24 bags you could make.  While some people aren't 3D folks, I love a cute little package.  You can make a cute little bag and put a 25 cent chocolate in it and you still steal a person's heart!  I could not use these for my daughter's classroom since they cannot do candy this year but I can use them for my customers!

For this project, I wanted to tackle how to shut the bags.  The original sample has an adorable arrow (thus the Adoring Arrows name for the kit) but they keep the bag from closing.  So I found that if you wrapped a 5 x 3/4 piece of cardstock around the top and sealed with Tear and Tape, you get a much better closure.  I added a heart punched out from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and a little 1" circle in Whisper White as well.  I did change out the ink to Blushing Bride from my stash of inks because I wanted as soft of a look as I could get!  All other pieces, including the stamp set and thread, are from the January Paper Pumpkin kit.

Check out this video for how I put together this bag.  When I say Sticky Strip OVER AND OVER, I mean Tear and Tape.....

For those that sometimes waiver on Paper Pumpkin, I understand your dilemma.  When I look at the kits from the last 14 months, I love something about each one.  I haven't seen a stamp set that I haven't fallen for out of these kits.  The January kit had stamps for thank you, dear friends, adoring you, love, and to/from, plus the hearts.  Don't get locked into the sample from the kit - I'm here to offer you more ideas and the stamp sets can be used with anything you have!!!  The February kit will be cards.  I don't know whether you will like the sample or not but in a kit with card pieces, I promise something you can use!  Plus, you will get a card from me using the stamp set and a new layout for you to try in the mail!  Come back tomorrow to see the thank you note that went out to my January subscribers!
