I do believe that the Top Note die was the first Stampin' Up! die I purchased several years ago when I was still just a customer...and a very happy customer as well. These treat bags that you can make with the top note and a small paper bag are just the cutest!! Aren't they! And they are so much fun to give away!
Because I love them so much and because I appreciate all my customers and visitors so much, I'm going to give away my very first BLOG CANDY! Leave a comment on this post and next Tuesday, January 18, 2011, I will have random.org draw a number for the winner. The winner will receive a kit in the mail with all the parts to make your own valentine treat bag! (You'll have to fill it yourself with treats, but that shouldn't be too hard!)
Here's how I did it...(view printable or downloadable google doc instructions here)
here on that Filled With Love special. The polka dot Real Red top note I trimmed to about 1 1/4 inches wide. I took a strip of Real Red cardstock that was cut into a strip of 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches and punched it with the scallop border edge punch. I also prepared my stamped image. Colors used are Old Olive, Real Red, and Pretty in Pink.
THERE'S A PHOTO MISSING HERE...BUT TURN YOUR PUNCH OVER AND LINE UP THAT PUNCHED PINTER PAPER OVAL IN THE PUNCH WINDOW AND PUNCH OUT.
Then adhere your Real Red polka dot piece right over the punched handle, as shown above.
Printable Google doc instructions here.
Thanks so much for looking and don't forget to leave a comment to be entered to win this treat bag kit as my very first BLOG CANDY!
