the twinery | market street stamps blog hop


So glad that you are all with me today, because we're going to have a little packaging fun with the     Loopy Loo Polkas stamp from Market Street Stamps and lots of Caribbean, Maraschino, Peapod, Mandarin, Charcoal, Honeydew and Denim baker's twine from The Twinery

you should arrived here from the blog of the talented 
If not, head over to The Twinery blog and begin there

If you don't have any kraft bags in your supply stash, you can find them here. The large bracket shaped die cut is available here

It's beginning to feel a little like Christmas so my mind always goes into overload wondering how I'm going to make all those little treat bags for our Nutty Nut Slippery Melts look cute while trying to stay within a budget. And yes, those are Halloween treat bags and even a Valentine's Day version you see up there all to show you the versatility of this one background stamp.


Wondering where I found the tags and labels that coordinate with my baker's twine from The Twinery so well? Just head over to the blog at The Twinery and in the sideabar, you'll find a link to the tags. I imported them into my word processing software and added text that matched the occasion. You can also use your alpha stamps or your even your own handwriting for a more personal touch.


To get the two tone effect on my stamped kraft bag, I stamped the lower front half of the bag with one color, turned the bag over and stamped the top half of the back side of the bag in another color...in this case green on the front lower half and red on the back upper half. Fold your bag to the front and then fold the ragged edges under to make it nice, neat and festive. I topped it with some patterned paper and embellished with the ever appropriate Peapod and Marschino eco-luxe baker's twine.


And now what you've all been waiting for...
