Hello my peeps! Today I've got a few photos of a gift that I put together for my grandson's preschool teacher. I wanted to give her something small but from the heart, so I cooked a small batch of shortbread cookies. I could give her the cookies in a plastic bag (but that's not my style). So I decided to decorate a glassine bag and put the cookies inside of it.
*TIP - Putting together a package like this can be quick and easy if you have a lot of your embellishments already made and ready to go. For example... I'll take an afternoon and make a bunch of paper flowers with my Spellbinders® flower dies and pre-tie a bag full of bows using my Lace Ribbons from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. I also have several ATC cards that have sheet music decoupaged using diluted Girlie Grunge Art Medium and then colored with watercolors that I made with my Pigment Powders. You can see how I made my watercolors on this blog post: DIY Watercolors with Pigment Powders and I have a new blog post with a video tutorial on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog as well: DIY Watercolors Video Tutorial by Donna Salazar
There are only 8 little cookies in the bag that I created, but the fact that I made them from scratch and packaged them in something that I decorated myself makes this little gift much more meaningful. By the way... if you are going to package cookies for a small gift, the bag will get discolored from the butter in the cookies so package your cookies in a plastic bag before placing them into your packaging.
And this is a photo of the back of the bag. To get the image on the tag I used my Embroidered Flowers stamp from Spellbinders® with watermark ink then lightly brushed over the image with my Brown Pigment Powder from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. The sticker holding the bag closed (and the sticker on the front of the bag) is from Photoplay's Fresh Picked paper line.
