Fall treat bag

Today I've got a fun and delicious treat bag to share!  I made this treat bag using a file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons called "Oval Window Treat Bag."  I cut the bag out of some paper from a KI Memories stack, and then decided to cut the oval with blue as a contrast to the tree.  I totally cheated on the clear part of the oval, since the kisses were wrapped anyway, and used a piece of the packaging from a collection stack I had gotten in the mail that morning and hadn't thrown away.  It worked!

I also cut the super cute tree from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons- this file was called "Autumn Tree." It was super easy to piece together, but it looks really complicated once it's all together.  After I was all finished and was cleaning up, I found out I'd missed one of the layers that had slid under another piece of paper, but you totally wouldn't be able to tell if I hadn't just confessed, right?  I love that.

I spent a really long time trying to get a picture that showed it was a gift bag, and also where I wasn't blocking all of the light.  It's been really dreary here lately (Except today, of course, after I'd already eaten *all* of the pumpkin spice kisses. That will teach me to enjoy my crafting props before loading the pictures to the computer.  I just couldn't help myself, they're really good!) so I've been without natural sunlight mostly.

I'm entering this treat bag into the Autumn Harvest challenge at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.

  1. Oh my goodness, your treat bag is adorable! I love the beautiful tree (and, nope you can't tell that anything is missing)! I can totally relate to eating the props! I bought way too many "props" for Halloween projects this year - I think I've gained 5 pounds and I haven't even bought the Christmas props yet! Thanks so much for playing along with our Autumn Harvest Challenge at PPPR!
