"Thanks for Shoveling" Treat Bags

My husband and I purchased our first house last spring. We haven't had the chance yet to but a snow blower. Fortunate for us we have absolutely wonderful neighbors that helped us plow through this winter. We thanked them be hand-delivering a dozen chocolate chip cookies in these cute treat bags. I had to use 2 per neighbor as the bags were too small to fit all 12 cookies.

I used the Betty's Bags file from to cut the bags - "bag handles short" file. One 12 x 12 sheet cuts one bag. I then cut out a birdie using the Cricut. The sentiment "Enjoy" was cut from the Cindyloo Cricut cartridge. Much of the patterned paper is from the "Berry Sweet" line of papers from K&Company.

Woody What-Nots Canvas Set

This was a popular one at the fair today.... a set of 4 Woodsy canvases. Perfect for any boy's room. They are made of mixed mediums including vinyl, paper, and paint. This set would look great hung on a line of ribbon or rope on the wall, placed on a shelf, or hung using 3M tape in the square. I used Lettering Delights "Woody What-Nots" file to complete the project. To purchase click HERE. I first painted the canvases with a shear coat of light tan paint. Then cut the animal pieces out of cardstock. The animals were adhered to the canvas using Mod Podge and double-sided tape. I also inked the edges in brown to create dimension. The oh-so-cute phrases were cut in black vinyl. The vinyl made them very easy to apply.
