Fun Snowflake Treat Tag!
This was a fun project.  The “tag” is actually a folded card with a cellophane bag inside.  Think of how a tea bag sits inside its small packaging and that is what this card is based off.  We made a similar project as one of the make-n-takes from the 2010 Stampin’ Up! Convention.  I loved the concept and thought it would be really cute as a Christmas Tag that included an extra little treat.
To create the “Tea Bag” Tag, I cut a strip of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock down to 3 1/2 x 10 then scored a line at 4 1/4 and another line at 8 1/2.  With the shortest piece cut on both edges to create a triangular piece to fit into a slot made by using the word window punch.  The cellophane bag that I used on the inside is the Small Flat Cello bags from Stampin’ Up! that I cut the size of the Cello bag down to 4″.  The Cello Bag is attached inside the card with sticky strip.
I think that a small Dove chocolate would be a perfect treat to put inside the Cello bag as part of the tag.
SunnyGirlScraps Tips:
  • To make the “fish tail” on your ribbon, fold the ribbon in half then cut inwards from the two folded halves towards the knot.
  • When applying the Jewel Basic’s use the tip of your paper snips to lift the pearl or rhinestone along with the adhesive from the backing (Paper piercer also works great).
  • Rules of Composition – Simplicity!  Simplicity is the method of keeping the information in your project relatively simple.  With photography, keep in mind that if your main subject is close, then your background should be very simple to avoid distractions.  Try to keep everything that is not important much less interesting than what’s important in the project or photo.  A key feature of “simplicity” is to avoid lines or objects that lead the eye away from the main subject of your photo or project.
