Did someone mention Choklit!...

Good afternoon everyone...

Here is my latest Design Collective project for lovely 
The first thing I must say is big thank you to my lovely and talented friend Kat (who you can find HERE).  Kat inspired me to make this project when she gave me a gorgeous Halloween gift made in a very similar style.  

I have borrowed Kat's wonderful idea and made a Christmas Treat Bag.

The template for the bag is very like that which you would use for a crossover card.  That works really well because it leaves a little pocket on the front to pop a tag inside.

I have added lots of pictures which I hope will help!  (I failed totally to plan ahead here because I now realise I should have taken some pictures as I went along - oh well, perhaps I will make another one - choklit is involved after all (-;)

I have used one of the stamps from Lili of the Valley's beautiful
Santa Christmas Trio set along with a sentiment from LOTV's 

...and here we are, a little Christmas treat bag... 
(other choklits are of course available)!

There is a fabulous Last Chance To Buy stamp offer on at the moment with oodles of gorgeous stamps available for £2.50 each owing to some off them being retired - best to stock up now 'cos when they're gone, they're gone!

  3. I am delighted you liked the bag enough to do your own version and it's totally brilliant :-) I am slightly biased by anything with chocolate in it but it's still brilliant!
    The Santa image is perfect for this design and the jingle bells are a wonderful detail...so I bet it sounds as good as it looks!
    Funnily enough I only ever made just the one of these treat bags...and now I want to do some more after seeing your fantastic design! Ha ha, isn't it funny how the inspiration goes round in circles...I love how you and I inspire each other :-)
    Big hugs, Kat xx

  5. I got seriously distracted by the choklit but when I'd stopped drooling, I could admire your gift pouch properly! It's gorgeous Sue, I love the vibrant rich red and it's a fabulous design. It's a great way to use those trio images too. I love that one with his legs flailing away!
