This is WEEK #7, the last week, of the Sizzix Blog Hop!
We are designing with Sizzix die number 656774, Treat Bag Topper, designed by Eileen Hull. This Die can be found on their website! This die comes with several different types of toppers in three different sizes and embellishments! So much to work and create with! I decided to create a mix treat bag!
I especially Love this die because I LOVE to make mixes! This cocoa mix is the perfect house warming gift. I usually make up the batch and have these in my freezer waiting for guests as they arrive....and we always have people dropping off Christmas goodies, so these mixes are great to have on hand when you need a gift to give back! I also make up a brownie mix and have choices to give away! Here is a closer view! Click on either photo to see a larger view!
This is what I used to create the treat bag:
5" square piece and 3/4" x 12" scraps of two coordinating fabrics
5" square piece of Steam-a-Seam2 fusible webbing by The Warm Company
Extra Strength glue stick by Elmers
Fabri-Tac by Beacon Adhesives
(2) 1/2" Glue Dots
(2) 1/2'" x 3" extra strong double sided tape by Therm-o-web
Scissors, exact-o knife, black sharpie
Adhere fusible webbing onto back side of fabric square. Iron onto outside of large treat bag topper. Use exacto knife, carefully, to cut fabric along edges. (I folded the topper to press fabric onto each side.) Cut holes out with knife. Thread fabric strip from back side through holes. Tie into a bow. Fill clear bag with cocoa mix. Fold top down and staple closed. Adhere double sided tape onto inside of topper...one on top and one on back piece. Adhere bag onto tape pieces. Glue a small berry spray to front of bag topper with fabri-tac. Print out a saying onto paper and clue to tag with glue stick. Adhere to bag with glue dots. Enjoy!
Here is the cocoa mix:
20 quart box of powdered milk
(1) large can chocolate drink mix (Nestles)
(1) small bottle Creamora
16 oz box powdered sugar
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Stir with a wire wisk until evenly mixed. Store in airtight container until ready to use. You may add powered coffee flavorings, such as mint, raspberry, english toffee, etc. To use: Place 3-4 Tbsp. in a mug, add 8-10 oz. of hot water and stir. Sometimes I add mint chocolate chips or marshmallows to the mix!
Have a wonderful Christmas Holiday!
