2SF's Friendzy Friday!

The last FF of October... I probably should have done Halloween but my mind is so on Christmas as I ramp up for the move and think about decorating our new home!

I have looked for little glassine bags everywhere and they are hard to find, so I made some!

I made this little treat bag for Jackson... it is safe to spill on the ground cause it is just trail mix! :)


I used these supplies... parchment paper, glue stick, ribbon, stamps, ink, pattern paper.

I measured out an 8: x 9" piece of parchment.
Fold into an 8" x 6" piece by folding in 3"
Then fold the other side in 2" to make an 8" x 4" rectangle.
Pink both ends with pinking sheers.

Next you need to glue the 2 flaps together.
Fold up the bottom and glue down.
Then I stamped the front with a few flakes.
Folded down the top and punched two holes for ribbon.

Then I made a cute little tag...

Filled it up with trail mix and tied it up with ribbon!

I think he will love it!
