No matter what time of year it is, there seems to be numerous occasions to let people know they are doing a great job, or to just offer them a little thank you!
I am a firm believer in lifting people up. People enjoy being noticed for an achievement or for something they have done for someone.Since school has started, and kids seem to need a lot of positive reinforcement, what better way to offer it than quick little reminders you can tuck in somewhere they will find!
This weekend, I took just a few minutes to use a new stamp set to create some quick pieces which I could add to gift or treat bags and stick in a little goodie of some sort. These are not just for kids, and if you know someone well enough, tuck in some little surprise you are sure they will use.
See why I think this is a great stamp set to use for this type of little recognition.
The images outlined in red have a corresponding shape to cut with a Cricut electronic cutting machine, using the Close to My Heart newest Artistry cartridge. I love the speech bubble shapes! Those are so fun to use on scrapbook pages!
You can use whatever size bag you want, but I thought these little bags would be great to have on hand! Aren’t they adorable! Besides the Slate color, they also are available in Honey, Lagoon, and Ruby.
Make quick work of these by using embellishments. You may already have them from scrapbooking, card making, or other crafting endevours! Here is how I made them.
- Select a stamp
- Cut a piece of cardstock to fit the stamp size, and stamp it
- Add Shimmer Trim! It is glitzy and self adhesive
- Add self adhesive sequins
- Fold top and punched two small holes
- Thread fiber through holes and tied to close the bag
- That’s it!
What are you going to tuck inside your little bags?
