CCC #35/ Treat Bags 2010

Are you knee deep in holiday projects?  I am nearing the surface, ha ha.
Today I am sharing the treat bags I made this year for DH's coworkers.

I have featured Lawn Fawn's "Winter Bunny" (my theme for this year).
He's on our Christmas card shown HERE

I got the kraft bags at Michaels, painted them with white acrylic paint and stamped the snowflakes from Lawn Fawn's "Frosties" set with Brilliance white ink and put a dot of Stickles in the centers and in the snow.  Originally, I was going to adhere torn white paper for the snow or felt, but I saw THIS POST by Nicole Maki where she painted on lunch bags so I decided to do that.  Quick and easy!  I then added the bunny which I had previously stamped, colored, cut out, flocked (scarf) and pearlized (ears and tail).  WHEW!  I sent out about 65 cards and there are 25 treat bags.... and I still have bunnies stamped and colored on a sheet of paper... so I guess I did that bunny about 90 times...

Treat bags inside are filled with homemade buckeyes, turtles and dipped pretzels. 

Tip for painting the bags:  I put a sheet of paper in the sides to keep the sides neater.  I had a couple bags with paint on the back fold and this helped....

Thought this was funny. Drying time!

I am submitting this project to the City Crafter Challenge #35: use Kraft paper. 
This week's challenge is sponsored by Di's Digi Designs. 

Thanks for stopping by the old bloggity today. 
Three inches of snow outside.
