Welcome! Today is March the lucky 13th. I am thrilled to be joining the Scrapbooks by Design blog!
I’m going to jump right in to today’s tutorial: creating dog treat bags and stretching your stamps with Lawn Fawn.
As a newer stamper, I need to get the most from all of my stamps because I don’t have a huge selection in my stash.
For my treat bags, I used Lawn Fawn stamps, and stamped the hat from one image (Winter Sparrows) onto two different dog images from Critters at the Dog Park. There are several ways I could have added the hats to the dogs, but I wanted to create a single one-layer image, so I used a masking technique.
I found the 4×4″ bags at my local dollar store. You can use any bag you have (even a standard Ziploc bag) and just adjust the tag measurements. For this project, my tags were cut to 4×4″ and scored at 2″ to create the fold.
Never wanting to leave anyone out, these little treat bags will be perfect to spoil furry friends when I visit my human friends and family. I think it would be fun to recreate these bags again for different occasions and combine different stamp sets using the same technique. For instance, the costumes from Critters in Costume would be adorable on tons of images. You could also easily swap the dog snacks for human snacks and create gorgeous hostess gifts, or even party loot bags.
Thanks so much to Scrapbooks by Design for having me this week!
