Sketched Dot Gift Bag - Join us for the blog hop at


My share today is a treat bag and is made up of lots of things that make me happy. We’re talking sweet treats (yes, that’s chocolate in that bag), cute packaging, pretty lace and shiny sequins.


All we need is a puppy and we’d have the sweetest, happy-making-machine in the world.

Oh, ok, let’s have the cute puppy too….



Stampin' Up! pretty sequin trim -

I’m completely in love with the sequin trim varieties that are in the new 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! catalogue. We have Blushing Bride, Gold, Bermuda Bay and also Silver (not shown).

I just want to sit and play with them, they are so pretty!

You can find the glassine bags on page 151 of the new catalogue. Sketched Dots Tag A Bag Gift Bags. They are food safe, come in packs of 10 and are very cute. They are kind of like waxed paper and tissue paper, very delicate. I turned this one into a bagalope by scoring the sides and base at 2cm, adhering the bottom corners underneath with washi tape, then filling it out so it had a rectangular base and can now stand up.

    The new bags are such fun to decorate and tag. The sequins do add that extra touch of glitz.

    You had me at bling, but then you said chocolate! I totally overlooked these bags in the catalogue. Your project is super cute & I might have just added every colour of those sequins to my wish list.
