Warm Thoughts

Hello everyone - 

Finally finished wrapping up all of the Christmas festivities for the year. Just a bit of traveling to do and then back to the normal routine... and maybe some dieting after all of the cookies and treats I've been eating! :)

Of course I couldn't resist whipping up a few last minute treat packets with some of my favorite Lindt Truffles and Ghirardelli chocolates! I incorporated red into my design but that could be swapped out with white or gray or another color for a more wintery look. I'm thinking these treat packets would also work great when filled with hot cocoa mix and marshmallows. 

For my treat bags I used the Joyous Juniper Stamp Set and Joyous Juniper Dies from Technique Tuesday. After stamping in black I colored the images with Copic markers and then die cut. I stamped a sentiment from the same set on red card stock and trimmed to size.

The treat bags I used came with a window but I wanted to hide the contents (okay, they clashed with my color combo!) so I lined the treat bags with some 3" x 4" pieces of designer paper.  I added a few white jelly rhinestones here and there for a bit of bling.

To secure the bags I used a bit of red ribbon with white polka dots.

Thanks for stopping by! And as usual you can also find me on Instagram @daniellelounds for additional craft projects and to see my latest illustrations. :)

Disclosure: Thank you to Tam at Technique Tuesday for the stamps/dies that I am showcasing in today's project!
