A Thanksgiving Treat Bag

It’s a snow day and I am stuck at home, so why not post a fun crafty blog?  We have 2″ of snow and are expecting get a total of 7″ today, so I am grounded at home.

Not too long ago, my friend Terry had me over to her house to make this  Thanksgiving project.  I think it would make a great hostess gift; a Thanksgiving favor or treat bag; or a nice “pop-by” gift to bring clients.  I can’t remember what exactly we put inside this bag: an instant apple cider packet and perhaps some chocolate or caramels?  The recipient of this will have to let me know.  😉

These adorable mini lunch sacks are from Stampin’ Up!, along with everything but the cinnamon stick.  The specialty printer printed paper, lunch sacks and stamps can be found in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini Catalog (good through 1/3/11) on pages 12-13: Day of Gratitude (clear mount or wood mount rubber stamps).

Here is a close-up of the paper-crafted part and the water smudge (arggggh) on my stamped sentiment:

Thank you for reading my blog, and have a very happy Thanksgiving this coming Thursday!  We have SO MUCH to be thankful for, so count your many blessings.  🙂

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.

  1. Super cute! They would also make cute ‘doggy bags’ for leftovers… though it may need to be a slightly LARGER bag. 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving!!
