I used JustRite's What's Cooking Borders and Centers stamps to create a cute, circle tag for some little pocket cards.
The finished cards measure about 3.5" x 4.25" with a little insert to write a thank you note, birthday message, etc. I used K & Company patterned paper for the card front and Papertrey's Spring Moss Satin ribbon, some Dark Chocolate buttons and twine also.
To attach my pocket cards to the Large Glassine Sacks that holds two pretzels, I used some clothespins that I covered with the patterned paper I used on my card. Dark Chocolate buttons and twine finish off the clothespins. I think clothespins are one of the greatest little inventions ever created. And since my husband won't make me a clothesline, I have to use the little things somewhere, right! (The clothesline issue is another matter we'll discuss later.....I will get that clothesline someday. Eric thinks that it's a little embarrassing to hang your panties on the line for all to see.....however he does think it is perfectly fine to pee off the front porch!! Uh, what is wrong with that mental picture, you tell me!)
Sorry to digress there folks.......but you need to make some little treats like this. I know many of you say this: I don't think that way if I would see those pretzels at Walmart in the ugly packaging. Here's what you need to do: Always be on the lookout for things that can be re-packaged in another way. And have little gift wrappy stuff at home like glassine sacks, clear bags, ribbon, tags, etc. The JustRite stamps are perfect for little tags of this nature because they're quick and easy to punch out with circle punches or cut with Nestabilities. You could also pair the tags up with any of Lauren's Papertrey Timeless Templates, they would be perfect! And you don't have to spend a fortune, it's the packaging that makes all the difference. Think how fun this little treat sack would be for a little hostess gift or a take home dessert for visitors....or on a pillow of someone visiting your house. It's those little things that make people severely jealous of your craft skills...use it to your advantage girls!! Have a great weekend!
