Gingerbread Treat Pouch

For our Peachy Keen Let's Face it Fridays Challenge #6, we were challenged to use a paper bag in a fun and creative way.  I was a little stumped and then I saw this great idea on Beth's blog to sew a lunch sack into a treat pouch.  Her instructions to make the pouch are HERE.  I was happy to get out my PKS Snow Cuties 1 1/8" (PK-501) stamp set and make some little gingerbread people.   Please be sure to jump over to the PKS Challenge site and check out the other great DT projects HERE.  If you have some PKS face stamps, play along for a chance to win a Cricut cartridge and stamp set!


Stampin' Up! punches used:
Ornament in creamy caramel - head
1 1/4" Circle in creamy caramel - body
3/4" Circle in creamy caramel- hands
Modern Label in pink pirouette - sign
Designer Label - polka dot print sign back
Small Heart in real red

Supplies needed:
creamy caramel cardstock
pink pirouette cardstock
real red cardstock
shimmery white cardstock
polka dot print paper
MFT ric rac die (frosting)
black ink pad
chocolate chip ink pad
regal rose ink pad
white Americana paint writer sprinkled with dazzling diamonds glitter
uni-bal gel ink pen
dimensionals
sponge daubers
paper lunch bag
sewing machine with white thread

Instructions:
1) Create paper pouch following the instructions HERE. I attached the polka dot print paper on the inside back of the pouch before sewing the sides together.  Sponge the edges of the pouch with chocolate chip ink. Die cut 4 strips of rac rac and glue to front.  Punch out 6 hearts and attach with dimensionals.

2) Cut the tops off the ornaments for the heads. Sponge the edges of all caramel pieces with chocolate chip ink.  Stamp Snow Cuties faces onto head.  Apply regal rose ink to cheeks and add highlights to eyes with unibal white gel pen.  Glue head onto top of body (at a slight tilt).  Glue body onto back front of pouch.  Attach hands to front of pouch with dimensionals.  

3) Add dimensional paint for frosting and sprinkle with dazzling diamonds glitter.  Tie blushing bride poly ribbon for bow on head.

4) Cut 2 strips of pink pirouette 3/4" wide by 5" long.  Stamp greeting onto one end of strip.  I used the greetings from Peachy Keen Too Sweet to Eat (PK-412). Wrap the other end around a candy cane and pierce or punch a hole through both layers.  Attach a brad to hold loop together.
