Crackled Treat Bags

Hello, crafty friends -

I mentioned in a previous post that I was ready to move on from Halloween projects… so how about some festive treat bags? Never too early, right?

I was inspired by the latest Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge to use the Colored Crackle Technique. Specifically, I used the technique on some chipboard pieces I cut out with dies from Sizzix. And before I forget, there is an awesome prize this week from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.


I started with a glassine bag that I filled with Mint Dove Chocolates. I taste tested a few to verify that they were still as good as I remembered. And then a few more for quality control. ;)

To keep the bags closed I used red and white twist ties which I built the decorations around. I sandwiched them between black cardstock and Snowy Day designer and stitched around the edges to secure them in place.

Next I embellished the crackled pieces with a bit of designer paper (which was stamped with a “joy” sentiment) and a little sisal tree. I attached them to the main panel with foam tape and embellished with a few sequins and a bit of washi tape.

For a final touch I added a Season Chitchat sticker.


And if one treat is nice, four of them are even better.  Mmm.. I think I need to taste test a few more of those chocolates.
