Quick Bookmarks & Candy Holders

2012 Gift Bag and Bookmark

Here is a really quick project that could easily be changed for Valentine's Day or Easter just by changing the stamp set and colors. 

Feel free to give us a call or send us an e-mail if you would like some suggestions on how to update this for the upcoming holidays.  We are here to help you!

Here are the directions for the Bookmark and Treat Bag:

Using the leaves from the French Foliage Stamp Set emboss the Glossy White card stock using Versamark and Clear Embossing Powder.  BE SURE TO USE THE EMBOSSING BUDDY!!  If you tilt your head you can see where the Versamark has been stamped.

Be sure to heat your embossing powder before you start using the ink!

Using the More Mustard Ink – sponge one leaf, the use the Old Olive Ink – sponge a different leaf – finally using the Cajun Craze Ink – sponge the last leaf.  If you use the Cajun Craze first it will over power the other colors.

Next use a kleenex to wipe off all the ink across the card stock.  Any ink on the leaves that were embossed with wipe off. 

Use the Early Espresso Ink and LIGHTLY sponge around the edge of the ink cardstock – then wipe off the Early Espresso Ink with a Kleenex – this just leaves a faint show of dark color around the edge.

The BOOKMARK will be adhered onto the card stock that matches in size.  You can stamp a saying on the back if desired.

Fill the cello bag with candy and fold the die cute (Top Note) Cajun Craze card stock over the top and staple together.  After stapling the Cajun Craze Top Note over the cello bag, adhere the embossed Glossy White card stock to the Early Espresso card stock and ahere to the front of the Cajun Craze Card Stock.  Use the Early Espresso and Very Vanilla card stock to make a tag for the back of the candy.

PLEASE NOTE:
– THIS IS NOT A HEALTH DEPARTMENT APPROVED WAY TO GIVE CANDY

BUT IT IS BEAUTIFUL AND FUN!
