Mini Treat Bag with Reverse Stenciling

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Mini Treat Bag with Reverse Stenciling

So today I have a little something different. It’s stamping, but done differently! I’m sure there’s probably a technical term for this type of stencilling, but because I’m a bimbler who stumbles across techniques by accident, I can’t tell you what it is, although I’m sure I didn’t invent it!

I love the mini treat bag thinlits, I don’t use them hugely often, but they’re a great quick way to make a goodie bag. And I do hope that my ‘technique’ of die cutting reassures you a bit with those edge parts. I made the mistakes so you don’t have to….!

Aren’t they cute bags though? I decided not to add any further decoration to them because I wanted my reverse stenciling to be the focal point, but of course, you can pretty yours up as you want!

The little addition of those chocolate treats inside make these a great Valentine’s treat, but a little change of decoration and you could gift them away for any event!

Have a great weekend everyone!
