OCC Sketch #13

Thursday means it's time for another great OCC Sketch! This week's sketch was SO fun, and I knew what I wanted to do with it right away.

Immediately I saw this sketch as a great little treat bag cover. I make these a lot and pretty much always use an oval window and a scalloped edge for the flap!

This is probably the largest I've ever made one of these - it measures 4 1/4" by almost 5". I don't think you can tell from the photo, but there's a medium SU! cello bag inside the cover. I love using the double sided specialty cardstock - when the cello bag is empty it's nice to see the pattern on the inside.

The jumbo eyelets are set on the front layer only, the ribbon keeps this closed - it can be reused again and again.

The sentiment and top bird are on a tag that loops over the ribbon and can be easily removed without damaging the cover or even placed on another project.

Here it is, full of embellishment goodies for a special friend!
