Celebrate!

Hi stampers!  Today I'm sharing a cute little muslin bag that could be for either a wedding or a birthday given the pretty layered cake stamped on it!
If you visit my blog often -  you have seen me stamp on these wonderful  canvas muslin drawstring bags often - they are 5x6 - the perfect size for small treats.  I get them at Pouch Mart - and they have several other sizes.

I inked the solid cake stamp with 4 colors of Dew Drop Memento Inks (the dew drop shape makes it easy to ink small sections) and stamped it on the muslin bag. I stamped the swag along the top and adhered colorful sequins to it. Then I stamped the sentiment along the bottom.

My stamps are from Eat Cake and Say It Loud by Waltzingmouse.

When stamping on any material, it's a good idea to iron it first to smooth out any wrinkles that would prevent you from getting a clean stamping.  I also slip a piece of craft foam inside to cushion the stamping.

So much more fun than just using wrapping paper don't you think??  And the recipient has a little keepsake of the event! 

 If you are interested -  you can see all of the bags I've posted on my blog here.

Thanks for stopping by today!
