Triple Play Blog Hop – Gifts and Cards

TREAT BAG TOPPERS 656774 Is the Sizzix die featured today. If you have school aged children this die will come in so handy. It is great for teachers gifts, classroom parties and as a token of appreciation to many others. I love to bake so I see this die coming in very very handy. I also thought the extra pieces for embellishments would make nice cards, I used one of the treat toppers for a purse instead of using it as a topper.

Tools:Sizzix Big Shot, Scissors Die Cut
Materials – Clearsnap Chalk ink, 3D pearl pens, Crafters Warehouse Stencils, Prism papers, Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue®, Hero Arts Stamps

I made the little flower by using a quilling technique. This is the die cut
