I created this little treat bag using 'xo' heart and banner on a curve.
XOXO treat bag Daniela Dobson

I resized the ‘xo’ heart to 2”. Then, in the offset window I offset the xo heart by .25. I cut the heart shape from Kraft cardstock, and xo heart from white cardstock.

Step 1 Daniela Dobson

After I cut the xo heart I sprayed it with Heidi Swapp color shine.

After I cut the banner on a curve from white cardstock I sprayed it with color shine, as well. I added two pattern paper pieces to the banner.

I added a doily and a ribbon to the glassine bag.

I scored the heart at 1/8” intervals so it looks corrugated. I adhered the two pieces together and adhered them to the bag using 3D Foam Squares by Therm O Web.

I added a button with twine to the ribbon bow and two pins.
