Jumpalina Treat Bag!
At my last workshop, my friend Kathi Horne brought me the cutest little treat bag. It was one of those dollar store bags covered in paper. You can see it here. As she was leaving, we were talking about how cute the bunny was with the punches and it hit me! OMGosh... she would look so cute on a little treat bag! Then, I remembered this little folded pattern that I had tried last month with the Loves Me DS paper! It was sitting on my desk... just waiting for Jumpalina. Kathi and I had so much fun brain storming future projects. I hope we can get together and stamp again soon. I think now that I have Jumpalina, it takes the sting out of not getting that Bunny/Easter set out of the mini.... yah, that's it. That's my story and I'm stickin to it. I really don't NEED that set? Right?????
Jumpalina is attached to the bag with the brads that are also her eyes. She looked kinda lonely without a body, so I gave her one with another circle punch. Her ears are the small and large oval punches, this time, the inside of her ears are polka dotted (Au Chocolat DS paper). The handle of the bag is attached with brads and two daisies punched out with the daisy punch and pink colored brads. The only punch that isn't Stampin' Up! is the little flower barrette in her ear... since she doesn't have hair? LOL. It's a little punch I picked up at Target when I was at a stamping retreat with friends in WI. I love that little punch. The handle is actually close to cocoa card stock, but the photo is kind wacky.
I found the instructions for this box on SCS a while ago. It was originally for a tote purse that would hold 6 cards with envelopes, and I've made little totes with cards as gifts... it is perfect. For the smaller size, I believe this one was 9x9. You can make any size, you just need to start with a square. PERFECT with the designer series double sided paper! Go... try one! :)
Here come Jumpalina Cottontail, hopping down the girly bunny trail......... Spring is in the air baby!!!
