Hello Everyone! It's Lindsay here from the DT sharing a brand new AMAZING die set from Craftin Desert Divas, The Treat Bag Die!! This little treat bag is the perfect size for small gifts, classroom treats, baked goods, etc. And the bonus, you can decorate them to fit any occasion, holiday or recipient! Another bonus of this die set, the stitching matches all of the stitching that comes on the CDD die sets, so you can mix and match and decorate with as many or as little die sets as you want and it will look like a cohesive project! Today, I did just that. I mixed the Treat Bag Die with the Inside Scalloped Circle Dies to create a treat bag with a see through element for added fun and interest. You can watch the full video tutorial below. Also below you can find the CDD New Release Highlight video that will fill you in on all the details of this new die set, and how to assemble the treat bag!
This treat bag is so simple to put together and has so many possibilities! It is completely customizable to any occasion, holiday, or recipient you might be making it for. Here's a quick diagram on how I went about putting the treat bag together for this project. The only modification I made is die cutting the smallest circle from the Inside Scalloped Circle Die set into the center of one of the treat bag die cuts. This would be the front of the bag and serve as the see-through element.
Where the scalloped circle die cut was made I inserted a piece of acetate inside the box to make a window and then glued down the Inside Scalloped Circle over the acetate opening. I also die cut the flowers and ferns included in the same die set, assembled them, and adhered them to the left side of the opening with glossy accents.
A great addition to this design would be to use Staz-On Ink of heat emboss your sentiment onto the window opening, however, I die cut the largest tag included in the Treat Bag die Set from white card stock. To finish off the tag, I stamped the "Sweet Treats" sentiment from the Simply Said stamp set in gray ink and tied the tag onto the handle of the bag with twine.
This little treat bag is the perfect size for so many little treats. I chose to dress mine up with a bit of kraft crinkle paper and insert a few gumballs. My little one loved carrying this around and picking out the gumballs every once in awhile!
I hope you all enjoyed the videos for today and got a better look at the Treat Bag Die Set that is brand new this month.
