Stampin' Dreams November Blog Hop!

Thursday 19 November 2020 United Kingdom

Welcome to the Stampin Dreams blog hop!

The theme for today's hop is Christmas. Come and take a look at what myself and Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world have been creating!

To view all of the other projects, scroll down this page and find where it says 'You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!' and click the button underneath. Then simply click each photo in the gallery to check out each creation!

We do hope you find lots of inspiration here today for your Christmas papercraft projects!


You can learn how I created these treat bags by watching my video tutorial, which you'll find further down this page.

I have created these treat bags several times but this is a new, larger size standing at just under 7" tall.

To decorate my treat bag I used the Layering Circles dies to die cut the largest scallop circle in Pool Party cardstock and the largest circle in Whisper White cardstock.

I chose a sentiment from the Trimming the Town DSP (below right) that would fit within my die cut circle.

I then fussy cut a selection of houses from another sheet of the Trimming the Town DSP (below left). Starting from the middle, I positioned the houses above the sentiment, so that they slightly overlapped each other and did not exceed the width of the sentiment. 


I really love how this has come out and how the snow all lines up at the bottom like it was meant to be!

To learn how to make my treat bag, you can watch my video tutorial. 

If you want to get everything prepared in advance, you will need a piece of patterned paper measuring 7 1/2" by 7 1/2".

Grab your scoreboard, scissors, bone folder and double-sided tape and note that all measurements are in inches

Score at 2 1/8"
Turn the paper clockwise once
Score at 2 1/8" (to the score line)
Score at 4 1/4"
Score at 6 3/8" (to the score line)
Score at 8 1/2"

I also have video tutorials for two different sized versions of this treat bag -
  • If you would like to make the version using 6" x 6" patterned paper click here
  • If you would like to make the version using 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" patterned paper click here

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you enjoyed my video tutorial!
