Big Congrats Linda!  -  please e-mail Adela at  to let her know you were the winner on Julia's blog and which new release template you want -  the party train template or the train card template

Now on to today's post!
So how tiny is tiny???  - these little bags are made with a Memory Box Die and are just 1" long x 1/2" deep x 1" high. (I got mine at Ellen Hutson but she must be out of stock because it's not listed there right now)  I used Kraft Glassine paper by Tim Holtz so they look like little waxed brown paper bags. 
 The animals are from Papertrey Ink.  Each animal has a solid background stamp and their spots or stripes stamp so the detail is just wonderful.  You can also buy the dies to cut them out perfectly! (you die cut first - then stamp)
 Then I stamped the 'so TINY' sentiment - used an oval punch to cut it out and glued it to a toothpick that I then glued inside the bag.
This is how it looks from the back

So - they ARE tiny!  but I think they'd make a really cute treat bag at a baby shower don't you??!!  You could stamp them in shades of blue or pink!  You could probably fit 5-6 M&M's inside!

Or....... maybe, like me,  you just LOVE tiny little things!?!?!
