Loads of Love Your Way

January 27, 2024 in Sunny Studio - No Comments

Happy Saturday!

Sharing a fun Valentine’s gift using the Treat Bag Topper Dies. These dies are perfect for any occasion and add such a great touch to a little gift!

I started by die-cutting the topper from white cardstock and then die-cutting it with the Dotted Diamond Landscape Die for a little texture. Since I chose a panda in my little scene, I die-cut the topper again from black cardstock and overlapped/adhered the white and black toppers together.

Next, I die-cut the stitched rectangle in the dies from cream cardstock and inked it lightly with Saltwater Taffy Distress ink. I also splattered a little watered down white and black paints with a fan brush. I then stamped the cobblestone stamp from the Sprawling Surfaces Stamps on Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock and colored it with Copics. I used the same stitched rectangle die and die-cut the top portion of the stamp. I used scissors and cut along the top edge of the cobblestone and adhered it to the bottom of the cream stitched rectangle.

Next, I stamped the panda, truck, hearts and heart balloons on Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock, colored them with Copics and die-cut them using the coordinating dies.

I used the following stamps/dies:

Bighearted Bears Stamps/Dies (heart balloons)

Balloon Rides Stamps/Dies (panda)

Truckloads of Love Stamps/Dies


I adhered the heart balloons to the treat bag topper first and then adhered the stitched rectangle with the truck. I heat embossed small sentiments from the Truckloads of Love and Panda Party Stamps on pink cardstock with white embossing powder and hand cut around them. I die-cut the “love” sentiment using the Loopy Letters Dies from black and white cardstock and layered them together.


The Treat Bag Topper Dies are sized perfectly to fit the top of a cellophane treat bag, but I decided to make an outer sleeve to go over a cellophane bag. This allowed the treat bag to stand upright with candy inside. To make this, I cut a piece of kraft cardstock 4” x 11” and scored it on the 11” side at 4 3/4″ and 6 1/4”. I then die-cut one end of the cardstock using the Dotted Diamond Landscape Die to match the topper.

I created a window to see the treats inside by die-cutting the cardstock 3/4″ up from the score line using the second largest Stitched Heart 2 Dies. To get a scalloped heart border around the opening, I die-cut a piece of pink cardstock using the second largest Scalloped Heart Dies and then die-cut it using the second largest Stitched Heart 2 Dies. I then adhered the scalloped frame around the opening.


To finish, I filled a cellophane treat bag with some candy, set it inside the folded kraft cardstock piece and stapled it at the top.  I then adhered my treat bag topper to the top of the kraft cardstock.


I had a lot of fun making this and hope you enjoyed!

Thanks for stopping by today!
