Stitched labels framelets treat bag

Hello and welcome.

Today’s tutorial uses the Stitch Label framelets not as a label but as a flap for a little treat bag or favour bag. SONY DSCI have has this idea in my head from the moment I ordered the framelets and love that it just came together and worked. The framelets are much more elegant in real life than in the catalogue and they, of course, cut out beautifully, to add more detail I used the embossing mats and love that detail.
When designing a box I try to keep in mind economy of the cardstock and don’t want to waste it and so this is another project where you can get two boxes out of one piece of cardstock.
I have hand stamped the box as this is one of my favourite ways of decorating boxes._DSC0515 (2) The box with the little sweeties stamped on it is a sneak peek at one of the stamps in the new catalogue (let me know if you want a catalogue I can send one to the UK/FR/DE/AT/NL) which has some lovely stamps in it.
