Holiday Sneak Peeks with the Mini Treat Bag

Stampin Up Watercolor Christmas Mini Treat Bag Gift Idea - Mary Fish StampinUp

Today’s mini treat bag shows how dashing it can look dressed up for the holidays with a couple new products from the Holiday Catalog.  I polled my Stampin’ Pretty Pals Virtual Community and they came up with these fabulous uses for the Mini Treat Bag.  The pocket is flat (like an envelope) and measures approx. 3 3/4″ x 5″:

  • Chocolate bar 
  • Ghirardelli chocolates
  • Hot chocolate mix
  • Wrapped cookie
  • Gift Card
  • Lottery tickets
  • Movie tickets
  • Peppermint Sticks or Candy Canes
  • Flat jewelry
  • Note cards
  • Tea bag or tea mix.
  • Stampin’ Up! rhinestones (cut in half), pearls (cut in half) or Enamel Shapes
  • As an envelope for a card
  • Family photo

  • Sneak Peek.  I adore this classic Old Olive and Basic Black plaid from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper (144621).  Available Sept. 1.   A touch of pink from a couple Ghirardelli chocolates looks tempting tucked inside!

  • Sneak Peek.  Aren’t the “season of cheer” font and tree delightful?  They were stamped using images from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set.  Available Sept. 1.  My paper snips performed the “magic” on the tree!

  • A silver heart (Metallic Enamel Shapes) bumps up the personality of the tree.
