Triple Play Blog Hop Week 7 - Treat Bag Toppers

Welcome to the final week of the Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop. It has been a wonderful experience and I feel honored to have been included among such talented designers. I hope everyone has found some wonderful new ways to use these extraordinary dies.

This week's die is the Treat Bag Toppers by Eileen Hull. There are so many pieces in this die that can be used in so many ways. Instead of using this die as the tops of candy bags, I envisioned a totally different use.

I decided to create a little booklet using this die and Basic Grey, Figgy Pudding papers. I used the main piece of the Treat Bag Topper as the spine of the booklet and cut pages to fit. The "spine" already had holes punched so I just had to add holes in the pages before tying it together with ribbon.

I used the On The Edge, Ornate die for the edges of the pages. The green shape on the cover is one of the many decorative shapes included on the Treat Bag Toppers die. The letters were cut from an older Sizzix die font called Broadway Melody.

One of the other decorative shapes included in the Treat Bag Toppers die looked like folder tabs so I altered them a bit and used them as tabs inside the booklet.

You could add photos and include them as pages in this booklet. Or even use this for a special Holiday card.

I hope you enjoyed my project and be sure to continue through the Blog Hop by using the forward or back buttons in the blinkie to the right. And thank you for stopping by and visiting during this wonderful seven weeks of the Triple Play Blog Hop. A special thanks to Brenda, Eileen and Karen for making all of this possible and inviting me to join in. Happy Holidays!
