Treats! in Red - White & Blue!

These are a lot of fun to make with the CTMH My Creations Small Paper Pouch. Inside is a miniature York Peppermint Patty. Ghirardelli chocolate squares also fit perfectly in these bags!
You can punch circles or cut them with the Cricut if you don't have the right punch.
Stamping on the bags works best with the pigment inks.
Assembly Steps:
Using the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge cut ribbon shape at .75 inches from White Daisy cardstock.
Cut stars from Silver Glitter Paper with the Artiste cartdrige.
Cut circles or punch them out.
Stamp stars on bag with Outdoor Denim pigment ink with image form the Perfect Fit Birthday Occasions stamp set.
Stamp ribbon shapes with the image from Stamp Set D1530 that came with your CTMH Artiste cartridge!
Stamp the balloons with the image from the Perfect Fit Birthday Occasions stamp set on White Daisy circles, mount stamped images on red circles.
Using glue dots adhere stars and stamped images to bags.
Insert the York Peppermint Patty inside the bag.
Thread Cranberry Red Baker's Twine in a large eye needle, and make a small stitch to close the bag, leaving the ends of twine long enough to tie a bow.
This is  a great project for using up small scraps of your Cranberry and White Daisy cardstock.
