Tiny Christmas treat bag by Tim Holtz

Hello everyone, I'm here with my second project for our November challenge at the Country View Challenges. The theme is Christmas gifting, so I made a tiny treat bag. 

To make this tiny paper bag, I used the Sizzix Thinlits die, Treat Bag and one of the papers from a 8x8" Christmas paper pad (TH94085) by Tim Holtz.

After assembling the bag, I created a little scene to add it to the middle. 

For making this, I cut out a scallop circle with a Sizzix Framelits die, then a circle with another Sizzix die. I used 3 elements from the Tiny Snowglobes die set to make the scene. I have a few process photos.

As you can see I inked the top of the circle with Distress Oxide Broken China ink but I added the ink with a dirty sponge which was used for brown inking before. This way, it looks more vintage :-)

The pieces of the elements were cut out from different coloured cardstocks.

I added the snow with a white Sakura Gelly roll pen.

I punched two tiny holes with a Crop-A-Dile Big Bite to the top of the bag, then I glued the scallop circle to the middle of the bag.

What I used:

Sizzix Framelits die, Scallop Circles (657552)

Sizzix Framelits die, Circles (657551)
