Hello dumplings, I have a question for you all. What’s your favorite holiday cool weather drink? Coffee, tea perhaps hot chocolate? That would be your Hug in a Mug. Miss Hammie’s is tea. Now I’m sure you’re asking yourselves, “Miss Hammie, what does that have to do wth paper crafting?” The project I’m sharing today was created using the Hug in a Mug stamp set. It’s another example of a little something you can share with coworkers to say thanks or cheer up or just because.
Its a small treat bag that’s the perfect size to hold a packet of hot chocolate. The secret to this treat bag is that it’s perfect for new crafters that haven’t purchased the treat bag framelits die yet. Let me walk you thru it.
I used a piece of dsp from the Fresh Florals dsp pack. I trimmed it to 7 x 8 inches. In landscape score at 5 inches and 2 1/2 inches. In portrait score at 1 inch. Then fold and burnish your score lines. Using your paper snips cut along the horizontal score line from the edge up to the vertical score from the left side and then from the right side. This will leave a flap on the bottom. Apply your adhesive, I recommend Stampin’ Up’s Fast Fuse which is great for things like bags, boxes and 3-D projects. You could also use Tombow Multi-purpose liquid glue. Fold both sides in adhering the right side to the left. Then fold the bottom flap into place forming the bottom of your bag. Then using the Scalloped Tag Top Punch, a 2 x 5 1/4 inch piece of Whisper White cardstock and a 2 1/4 x 5 1/8 inch piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock make two tags. Layer the Whisper White tag on the Tranquil Tide tag. I pick a mug that reminded me of my favorite mug and stamp it and my sentiment in Tranquil Tide. I also added the steam since nothing says “Miss Hammie it’s going to be a great day” like a steamy cup of tea. So the perfect sentiment and a little sparkle finished this project perfectly. So a bit of Gold Mini Sequin Trim and a Gold Library Clip and I was done.
