Lunch Bag Treat!

Hiya, Crafty Peeps!!! This is Melissa here to share a treat package with you today.

Well it is official - the kids are all headed Back to School.
All three of mine started this week. Even my baby girl who had her first day of Kinder yesterday. Well of course I shed tears throughout my day, but she came home telling me how awesome it was. I'll miss hanging out with her all day, but I am excited for her.
 For her first day, I added a little treat package to her lunch bag.
I used the Tiny Kraft Bags (3 1/4" x 5 1/4") and the featured Cranberry Trendy Twine.
For the front of my bag, I used elements from My Scrap Chick's School Paper Easel Card to decorate it. For dimension on my project, I used inks, pop dots, and layering. I wrapped it with twine and finished it off with a heart button as I knew I had to send my heart with her.
For the inside, I again used elements from the same MSC file. I stamped my message using stamps from My Craft Spot. I had to do some masking, but I like the results!
To finish off the inside, I used a bit of Midnight twine. I had really admired Sukie's technique of using twine to look like pencil markings from this TT post so I just had to try it too. Thank you, Sukie, for the inspiration!!!
After sticking my note inside the decorated Kraft bag, and a small piece of her favorite apple flavored Laffy Taffy; I folded over the top and tucked it in her lunch pal to be found for a mid-day reminder of how much I love her!
Hope you will give the Tiny Kraft Bags a try. They are so easy to decorate for many occasions.
I also want to remind you of the Spooktacular Halloween Blog Hop we will be having tomorrow. You won't want to miss all the great projects the DT has been creating for you!
