Bella Treats

I've seen these cute little Bag in a Boxes for the past few weeks, but just now got around to making one. I used today's projects as prizes at my workshop Monday (congrats Tonya & welcome Lori!). I found a great tutorial by Paula Goff (Inking Addict) right HERE! Really good directions, easy to follow. She used the 3/16 corner rounder to create the scallops, but I used the new SU Scallop Edge punch and it was even easier. I really like how it came out. That Bella Rose DP just makes everything look so good!! While I had those supplies out, I put together a quick little mini hershey bar treat. This is similar to a tutorial that Beate did for SCS a few months ago on the full size pull treats...you can check it out right HERE! It's the same idea, just smaller, with a few modifications. I was just using up pieces that were left over from the bag project. So there you have it, two fun little projects to try : ) !! Mauna from Ink Paper Scissors gave me this sweet award yesterday! It was an extra nice surprise because it came on my birthday : ) ! I will pass this along later this week. Thanks Mauna, for blessing my day with this special award!!

Nancy, I loved receiving this treat bag....so cute!! My favorite part was the little trick you told us about how the button is tied with just a tiny piece of coordinating paper!! Such a great idea!!!
