Iris’s End Of Term Sweetie Bag Presents.

Iris completes her first term at morning nursery in a couple of weeks time and I said I would make a few sweetie bags as a Thank You to all the fantastic staff. 
Ice cream sweetie bagsI had bought the ice cream sweets from the Co-Op a little while ago thinking that they would be perfect for a some sort of summer project and at 3 bags for £1 it would have been rude not to buy them.
IMG_3581I am always careful to use plastic gloves when taking sweets out of their original bags and then seal them immediately in clear cello bags using my ever faithful, but of late, under used  bag sealer.
IMG_3582I cut out the bag topper with my new White and Gray Big Shot, using a largish Spellbinder label die, going back goodness knows how many years.
IMG_3584I folded the topper in two and the used double sided tape on both sides of the reverse to securely fix the topper to the bag.
IMG_3585I then used plain and scalloped edged punches to make three layered circles, sticking them together and then handwriting two parts of the message on either side, adding a spare ice cream in the middle to continue the theme.
IMG_3586I have to be honest, the tops did take me quite a while to work out, using just one circle, as I had originally intended, just looked unfinished and a bit lost, however three circles together just seemed to finish them off perfectly.

I think you're right. Three circles did the trick. They look great, and Iris' teachers will definitely appreciate them.

I don't post very often but read both your blogs regularly. The little bags are gorgeous. Have you thought about selling them at craft fairs, online etc.

They're such a brilliant idea. Good luck if you do xx
