Ice Cream Anyone?

I made these fun headers to give out. I thought it would be fun to bag up some candies as gifts and when I saw the Baskin Robins candies at the store I knew right away what stamp I wanted to use!!! I chose the ice cream cone stamp from the Stampin' Up! "ABC Images" set. Isn't that just a cute little stamp??? I wonder if it would work with the new "Sock Monkey" stamp set??? Hmmm. I may have to check into that!! Like I don't have enough to do!!! LOL

To do these bags you do need to have 3" x 3" little plastic zip baggies. Now they really don't need to zip so if you have taller baggies you can cut them off. The stapling of the header will hold them shut.

You will need a piece of card stock 4-1/4" long by 3-1/4" wide. Fold in half to measure 2-1/8" by 3-1/4". The colored layer measures 2-3/4" by 1-7/8". The white piece measures 2-5/8" by 1-3/4".

I then stamped the ice cream cone image all over the white pieces using black Staz-On ink. I colored in the cones with Creamy Caramel and I colored in the cones using markers to match the card stock I used. Here I used Green Galore card stock and a Gable Green marker. I used Pixie Pink cards stock and marker. And the purple is Almost Amethyst. I colored directly from the marker. No blender pen or watercoloring.

I used the scallop punched and punched them out using Pixie Pink. Then I stamped the "for you" words from the "All Holidays" set using black Staz-On. I centered them in the 1-1/4" punch and punched them out. I sponged the edges and assembled everything.

When doing headers make sure the back side of the staples are on the front part of the bag. The layering hides them and this allows the backs of your headers to have a nice smooth staple that has a clean look to it. If your layer doesn't stick nicely use the Sticky Strip tape to hold that end of the layer down.

These would be great for many things, Customer Appreciation, Make N Takes, Hostess Appreciation, Stamp Camps and Craft Fairs. You can go seasonal with them and use them for little give aways at school too!

It's a fun way to dress up candies! Plus these candies are SO bright and colorful!! It was fun working with these colors!
