Happy Harvest Treat Bag
Hi everyone! It's been awhile since I have been able to get down to my craft room but I have a little treat for you - a treat bag that is :) I was cleaning up my craft area earlier today and came across this lovely little burlap bag that was just waiting patiently to be used. I instantly thought of pulling out my Wplus9 Happy Harvest set with the coordinating dies!
I started out by taking one of my Inkssentials Sticky Back Canvas ATC and my Memento Rich Cocoa ink and stamped out the wagon and the little wooden pail that is on the hanging tag. I then added the pumpkins with some Ranger Distress Spiced Marmalade and the grass with some Ranger Distress Peeled Paint. I then stamped the Happy Harvest sentiment in black and distressed the edges of the canvas with Ranger Distress Antique Linen and Vintage Photo (I did the same on the little tag as well).
To attach the canvas to the burlap I did a quick and simple running stitch and tied a little bow with the ends to add a bit of a decorative finish. I then stuffed the bag with my goodies, cinched it up and added my little tag (SU punches) with an eyelet and tied it to the bag with some left over raffia. I had some extra little die cut leaves from a sizzix die hanging around my scrap pile so I added those too for that extra little bit of freshness.
For such a quick and easy project, I'm pleased with how it turned out! It also helped to get me out of my creative slump that I have been it so it's a double win of a project on this end :D
Thanks for coming by today and hopefully I will be back in a day or two with a card for you :D
