Dragonfly Dreams Glassine Treat Bag

January 27, 2017 4 Comments

This morning, I’m up at at ’em early as I’m getting ready to head out to spend the weekend with my mom.  You know, there’s nothing like some mom time!  If I get my ducks in a row quickly enough, I will be there in time to have lunch.  But first, I wanted to post something and try an experiment.  It has occurred to me that most visitors here don’t read much of what I post — they just look at the pictures and go.  Though visitor numbers to my site are high, participation in my giveaways have been incredibly low.  So today, I’m going to give a $5 coupon to be used on product from my store.  To get one of these coupons, you must be one of the first 10 people to comment.  Comments are moderated so, you won’t see them pop up.  But, I will and they are time stamped.  So, I will know who replied first, etc.  Now on to today’s creation.

I played with GDP071

and decided to use a material that I had not used in quite some time.

Dragonfly Dreams Glassine Favor Bag for GDP071 from theartfulinker.com

This little favor bag was created using the the Sending Love Glassine Sheets on page 14 of the Occasions Catalog.  Maybe you missed them – they’re a translucent white with a small printed figure.  These little favors couldn’t be easier to make!

I cut my Glassine Sheet in half along the landscape side and then folded it in half.

I’ve used Tear and Tape to seal the bottom and side.

Tip: If you let the Tear and Tape hang over the edge a bit, you can roll the excess back in on itself and won’t have as large a seam.

Next, I used the Hexagons Dynamic Folder and ran the bag through the Big Shot.  This gave lots of lovely texture.  And, really sealed the bottom and side.

Using some Pop Of Pink washi, I wrapped a band around the bottom of the bag.  Then, I added three Basic Rhinestones.

At the top, I added the lovely dragonfly.  The bottom layer was stamped with an image from Dragonfly Dreams and then heat embossed with Silver.  The top and bottom layers of the dragonfly were cut with  Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.

Two small Basic Rhinestones were added for eyes.

Then, I looped together Silver and Black Metallic Thread and adhered them with Glue Dots.  After adding a length of Silver Sequin Trim, the whole embellishment piece was added to the Glassine favor bag using Glue Dots.

I’ll say again, it just couldn’t have been easier to make this lovely bag.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Dragonfly Dreams Favor for GDP071.
