Hi everyone, Audrey here. Today I have a fun Summer Camp Treat Bag to share with you, made with dies and products from Eileen Hull's adorable new Vintage Travel collection.
These little treat bags are so quick and easy to put together, and I think they are so great for the summer. I'm planning on packing my bags with S'Mores kits, but they are also great for summer birthdays or for anyone heading out on a summer adventure this year.
Just wrap your Summer Camp Treat Bag with a bit of ribbon, and then create a quick hang tag to clip to the top. For my bag, I began by die cutting a tag from watercolor paper using the Cameo Frame Movers & Shapers die. I inked the background with a variety of Distress colors, and then for a great pop of texture, I embossed the die cut frame with Eileen Hull's new Starlight Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. For embossing, you will need the Sizzix Extended Multipurpose Platform, open to Tab 1, and this embossing sandwich: Standard Cutting Pad, the embossing folder with paper inside, and a second Standard Cutting Pad. A little more ink over the top of the embossing really helps bring out the pattern. I then punched a small hole in the top of the frame, and tied a bit of hemp through the opening. Instant tag!
The Grass border and Travel Trailer are both new Sizzix Thinlits dies from Eileen's Vintage Travel line. I paper pieced the adorable trailer using a variety of cardstock and patterned papers. I seriously love that each part is created with it's own individual die, making it super easy to paper piece. The grass border was die cut from cardstock and then inked with green Distress ink. I layered two borders to create a fuller grassy area. For both Thinlits and Framelits sets, we recommend using the Standard Magnetic Platform and Big Shot Machine and this Sizzix die cutting sandwich: Standard Magnetic Platform, Standard Cutting Pad, paper, die (cutting side down), Standard Cutting Pad. The final detail was adding a stamped sentiment from Lori Whitlock's Happy Birthday to You Framelits w/Stamps set to the banner flag.
