Treat Bags


Hi everyone, I'm back today with a quick beyond the page project. Whilst I'm having a bit of a holiday from chemo treatment at the moment, I still have to have my porta-cath flushed every 6 weeks, so I had to have that done on Monday. I made these treat bags for the Day Oncology staff as a thank you for their care over the last year.

I used a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers by Diana Gibbs for her Box in a Bag. This is such an easy project, I made four of them in an afternoon.


I used patterned papers by Kaisercraft (swirly pattern) and Basic Grey (green), I used glittery stickers on one side of the bag and stamped some tags for the other side using stamps from Justrite Stampers Just Cookin' set. I've also used Fiskars border punch,Stampin' Up Round Tab punch, as well as circle and scallop circle Nestabilities and assorted ribbons. There is a close-up of one of the bags in the photo below.




I did also make a couple of larger boxes using the same papers and cardstock and filled them with goodies, but forgot to take a photo of them!

It's a glorious day here today, so I hope you are having a lovely day wherever you are today!
