Vintage Leaves Mini Treat Bag

Vintage Leaves Mini Treat Bag

 Make these cute Vintage Leaves Mini Treat Bags this fall to pass along your thanks.  Can you imagine these beautiful autumn Mini Treat Bags as Wedding favors?  Teacher Gifts?  Inexpensive Hostess Gifts?  


Vintage Leaves

 I made my Chocolate Chip Bag with the the Mini Treat Bag Framelit Dies.  After I finished making my bag, I embossed it with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  My colorful autumn leaves were stamped and cut with the Vintage Leaves Bundle.

 Punch Scallop Circles

Paper Flower

 Crinkle paper.  Because I used card stock which is thicker, I separated each circle into 2 circles as shown.

Mini Handheld Stapler

 Staple layers together with Mini Stapler.  The tiny staples are much easier to hide.

 Crinkle and shape around staple to form flower.

Crow Punch Art Card & Gift Box

Punch Art Crow Acorny Thank You

Paper Crows Can Be Cute

Admittedly, this is the cutest crow that I have ever seen and thankfully it doesn't make any sounds, but crows do remind me of late summer, early fall-so here's my version of a Punch Art Crow. 

I have seen very similar crows on pinterest, so mine is not an original.  I'm not sure where the idea originated.

Crow Punch Art Card Stampin' Up!

I tucked my first crow in a Gift Box.  He was so stinkin' cute that I simply had to make another crow for a card.  The acorn is from the Acorny Thank You stamp set.  Stampin' Up! has so many cute autumn stamp sets this year.  

Crow Punch Art & Gift Box

My Gift Box was fashioned with the Gift Box Punch Board and English Garden Designer Paper.  For a twist, I put the side flaps on the outside and threaded Linen Thread through them.  Did you notice that the Gift Box Punch Board is on Sale this Week as part of the Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals?
