Sunny Treat Gift Bag

Spring is in the air, BPM fans!  
Are you looking forward to sunny days ahead?  
This treat bag, which would be great for fun little gifts or name tags for your table.  
Whatever you use this for, it's super easy to make and can be changed to other themes by changing out the colors and stamped images.

White Lunch Sack
Glossy White Stamping Paper
White cardstock scrap for star
Random small paper circles in matching colors and small rectangles (Scraps were used for these)
Watercolor Pens
Tim Holtz Distress Crayons (or equivalent type) 
Black Archival Ink
Double-sided foam tape
Paper Die Cut 3-Dimensional Star (Sizzix 661595 Thinlits Die Set, Dimensional Stars by Tim Holtz)


1. Stamp Sun using archival ink to the glossy card stock.  After ink dries, begin coloring sun.  Once done, fussy cut sun out.

2. Using the crayons, color all sides of the white lunch bag.

3. Use a circle scrap that fits behind the sun (3" one should work fine), attach the sun to the circle, then the circle to the doily.  In my case, the doily I used was one I made with a large die out of velum, but any doily or larger circle cut from decorative matching paper will work. Punch out your 3-D star, color and decorate as you like.  I added a random stamp "smile" on mine.

Die cut doily, 3" circle out of a metallic cut that was on hand, fussy cut sun, narrow rectangle and star punched out and decorated.
4.  Finding a few more smaller circle scraps, arrange the pieces where they will eventually land on the card.  Leave at least a 2" at the top of the bag free from embellishments.  That will be where the bag will fold closed.

5. Fold the top of the bag at 1" from the top and another fold at 2" from the bag opening.

6. Glue down your various embellishments.

7. Option is to punch two holes through the top folded to draw a ribbon through to act like an enclosure.

It's now ready for giving.
