Last year I decorated a kraft gift bag much like this Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Mini Treat Bag and it was quite popular. This year I thought I would try something similar with one of my favorite products, the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies! I loved this project because you can use the treat bag as a treat holder, a small gift holder, or as a Christmas card! If you look closely you can see the top of the card I inserted in the treat bag with a strip of the Candy Cane Lane Specialty Designer Series Paper.
To make the mini treat bag, of course I used the Big Shot and the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies. I made this bag out of our Kraft 12″ x 12″ Cardstock. Rudolph’s antlers are punched with the Tree Builder Punch. The eyes are punched with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch out of Whisper White and the black pupils with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. I marked a little “highlight” on the eyes with my White Stampin’ Chalk Marker. The Red Glimmer Paper nose is punched with the 1″ Circle Punch. And I had to tie a bow on the reindeer with the Real Red 3/8″ Stitched Ribbon.
The card is cut from Whisper White Cardstock to fit inside the treat bag. I adhered a strip of designer paper to the top and stamped a greeting from the Tin of Tags Stamp Set. You don’t have to have the Tin of Tags in order to make good use out of this stamp set. It stands on its own!
