Hoot Hoot...Owl Treat Bags and a Giveaway

Hello Crafty Friends,
 
I have been admiring all those wonderful party favors over at Jaded Blossoms and decided I wanted to give them a try. I had some plastic bags I bought at the flea market when I did a craft show a while back, but did not use all of them. They are little bigger than what I want, but it works. I am going to visit the flea market this weekend to see if the lady is still there selling other sizes. I am hoping to find some smaller sizes, so I can make my students a special surprise before Winter Break.
 
Here is the toppper.
  I used Elegant Edges to create the frame by layering and folding it in half. Since there are so many choices on this cartridge, I can have a variety of tops for different themes/holidays.
Love this ribbon from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces! Thanks Karen!
Can't wait to fill this bag with some goodies! I was reading what an owl's diet consist of and I can say that it (rodents and insects) will NOT be stuffed in here. I think some candy might taste better!
Materials:
Canvas Corp papers
blue, yellow, and brown card stock
Create a Critter Cricut cartridge ~ owl 3" and Hoot 1"
Elegant Edges ~ frame 5 1/2" & 4 1/2"
blue and yellow ribbon
brown button
cream embroidery floss
clear plastic bag (about 7" X 5")
 
Challenges:
Paper Playtime ~ Anything Goes

How About a Giveaway?
Since it is Thanksgiving and I am very thankful for all my crafty friends...I want to share some treat bags. Just leave a comment and a way to get in touch with you by Sunday night. The winner will be announced Monday, November 26th.
Hope you had a great turkey day.
Georgiana
