Happy Easter 2017 From The 'Creek!
I wanted to quickly share some treat bags I made for Easter Dinner. Also, I wanted to show off some adorable cookies from a local baker.
I used the Waffle Flower Gift Bag Die available from Simon Says Stamp, Scrapbook.com & Blitzy.com and the Easter 6x6 patterned paper pack from Doodlebug, also available from these stores (please click on their links on the right hand margin. I promise I am working toward product links asap. I may be crafty, but for sure not a techie...)
Crafty Note: The bag die doesn't have instructions, but so you know, it only cuts out the front/back and handles. Part of the genius is you can make the sides as wide as you want as long as the strip is 8" long. I made mine 1 1/2" wide. You will want to score at 3" and 5 1/2" for a nice square bottom.
The front and back diecuts have tabs to fold that fit 1/4" double stick tape for a good hold.
I wanted to share some cookies (at least their photos LOL!) made by a very talented gal, Michele Herbon. She has a Facebook Page "Herbon Bons Bakery." Usually, cookies are either pretty or delicious. Her's are both and I have to say one of the best sugar cookies, if not the best, I've ever had. Those of you that know me can believe that I know what I'm talking about when it comes to eating cookies!!!
