Alternative uses for the Mini Treat Bag Die

I shared a project that we made last week at my Team Training Event. Over the weekend I played some more with the Mini Treat Bag Die and came up with a couple of other projects.

The first is a card. I used the Balloon Bash stamp set for the front and inside of the card. This stamp set was one of the ones that I had received earlier in the month when I went to the Leadership event in Florida.

I cut off the piece of card stock that would have made the closure at the bottom of the mini treat bag, and instead of overlapping and gluing the back together I trimmed it a little and then used those flaps as the card front.

I held the card closed by making a belly band from some of the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper and also some of the other dies that come as part of the Mini Treat Bag.

The second project that I made (see photo below) was another form of the bag. To make this one, I cut two pieces of  designer series paper using the larger die. I did not need to use the smaller die to make the second part of the bag as you would normally.

I saw a YouTube video on how to make this bag, it was made by Glenda Calkins (click on her name to go to the video). But, here is my version.

Again, I used the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper and the Balloon Bash stamp set. I finished off the bag with some Calypso Coral Pompom Trim and a small peg covered with some Beach House Washi Tape.

I did not make the third project (see photo below). I was lucky to receive it as a gift from a good friend and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Lesley Lendon. She made it from a piece of Designer Series Paper cut using the larger  die. The paper was then rolled and glued to make a smaller pouch.

The Stampin' Up! products used to make my projects are as follows:
