Give your Dog a Holiday Bone and Love with Pizzazz

I wanted to share another craft I made to sell at my church fair. I made some more dog cookies - this time in the shapes of ghosts, pumpkins and turkeys for the up coming holidays! You can see my other dog bones on this post.

I placed two cookies in each bag - some went in clear cellophane bags (Michaels) and some into wax paperbags (Papertrey Ink). I cut toppers from DCWV The Pets Stack using the Top Note die from SU and folding it in half over the top of the bag. You can find lots of dog bisquit recipes here. I made the Milk Bone ones.

I stamped a little dog with a bone in his mouth (Stamp Craft) on brown card stock and punched it with a circle punch. I printed labels on the computer that say "Give Your Dog a Bone" and stuck them on the front.

I know people like to know what they are giving their pets so I printed a list of the ingredients on a label and placed it on the back of the bag topper.

And here is my little basket full of the dog cookie bags - ready for the sale!

And finally I have a card to show you - We had a fun Ways to use it challenge over on Split Coast a while ago entitled "Say it with Pizaaz'. We were to JAZZ up our sentiments! I used some Damask Sticky Alpha letters by ColorBok that I got recently on sale at Michael's for my JAZZED up sentiment. I added an embossed scalloped heart Nestability with a gem over the letter O, scored some lines above and below with my Scor Pal and added a thin gingham bow!

A clean and simple card with pizzazz!!

Homemade doggie treats! What a cool idea! You're right about listing ingredients - people will just snap them up once they know they will be good for the dog and not just cute!

I love your CAS card - I've saved that one as an idea (well, to be honest, I save almost everything you make as an idea!!)
