Top Dog "Breakaway" Treat Bags

Authentique Paper and Top Dog Dies are teaming up over the next week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Top Dog Dies products!


After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Top Dog Dies blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

********************
Hey everyone, it's Hilary here today sharing with you my project using the "Flourish" collection from Authentique Paper and the "Mini Album Circle Die" along with the "Cherish Doilies and Tags" die from Top Dog Dies.  When I first received these dies, I was playing around with them, and it was when I placed the doily on top of the circle, and the fit was so perfect, I knew these would be perfect for a "breakaway" treat bag for Easter.  I have many little nieces & nephews that would love to receive these and they are so incredibly easy to make, and then "break" into!  They will surely enjoy them...as much as I did making them!
I hope you enjoy!


The "Circle" die is seriously the perfect size to for these and the doily just frames the mini jellybeans just perfectly.  


After creating these simply embellish with bows, tags and flowers. 


To make these, simply die cut as many circles from the "Mini Album Circle Die" as you want treats. Next, die cut transparency paper using the same "Circle Die", then die cut the largest doily from the "Cherish Doilies and Tags" die, the same number for as many treats bags.  Tip:  Before die cutting the doily, I laid my paper down on Therm O Web's "I-Craft Adhesive Sheets", which are amazing to use when die cutting doilies, because adhesive will completely cover the backing of the doily once it's run through your die cutter, and the protective sheet removed. 


Then simply lay your doily down on your circle, and press where you want it to stay.  Next, machine stitch a transparency circle almost the entire way around, stopping at the top.  It's at this point you will add your jellybeans, (or other sweet mini morsel), then stitch the opening at the top closed.  Your project will 'buckle' a little bit, from the jellybeans, so don't add too many.  I inserted just enough to cover the inner circle of the doily.  Then all that's left is to embellish the top.  I simply added a ribbon bow, tags and a felt flower to finish.  You can choose to stamp the smallest tag from the "Cherish Doilies" set, and tuck it in the corner of flower if you like!  Voila!  


Simple and sweet and your little ones will love tearing into the backs of these to get to the goodies on the inside. 


I hope you've enjoyed my project today, and I hope these inspire you to create your own.
