Hello  again, it is that time of the month...use your stash. I don't know about you I have so much stash  that I could probably open a store. Okay so this months theme was RIBBON.  Who doesn't love ribbon? My favorite ribbon from CTMH is the Satin Polkadot Ribbon in slate color (Z1802). It is so soft and yummy. Before I show you my project you should be coming from Casandra's blog wasn't her project awesome? We have 6 ladies in the hop this month. please leave some love at each of the blogs. If you get lost along the way go back to the beginning to Shirley's blog to see the entire list.

I am a big YouTube watcher. I think I watch YouTube more than regular TV. Wow can we say AMAZING TALENT on YouTube. I found this great video from a lady named Yolanda and her channel is called socrafty100. She uses Recollection envelopes from Micheals. They are in the pack with the corrugated cards. Here is her link if you would like to go check it out.Socrafty100 . You are going to love it. It is so easy and the treat bags come out so cute.

Here is my version of her treat bag. I used our new paper  called Brushed (X7190B). This such pretty paper. I only used 5 inches off a 12x12 sheet of paper. I also used the following to complete my gift or treat bag. Satin Polkadot Ribbon (Z1802), Silver Shimmer Trim (Z1799), Chantiliy Assortment Glitter Gems (Z1814), Just Blooms Paper Shape Flutter (Z1463) Base and Bling Floral Accents (Z1883) medium flower, wooden clothespin from the Mini Melody Accents Collection in Ruby (Z1861), Black and Grey Sparkle Assortment (Z1754), Stampset D1529 Cricut Artiste Collection Birthday, inked with our new ink Pixie Z2644 and cut on the Cricut, I also inked all the edges with black ink Z2105. I used a tooth pick to make my little flag on the side. I also cut strips of paper and used my paper crimper to crimp it and inserted it in the bag as paper rafia. Watch the video to see how easy it is to make  this treat bag. Love it! Now head over to Katy's Blog and see what creative project she came up with her stash of ribbon. TFL!

These are the envelopes used.
Score 1 inch fold and glue flaps.
Nice and wide. Decorate!
