The May Paper Pumpkin kit, Sprinkled With Love, was a cutie, just like the kits always are.
The main portion of the kit revolved around nine round cards, three of each of three designs.
Six of the cards featured donuts -- complete with donut holes!
All of the cards were meant to fit inside premade striped treat bags.
I, however, found an even better use for these cute little bags!
I turned them in to bag-a-lopes! This way, they could contain treats with some depth.
As you can see in the photo below, they are fairly deep.
For the front of the bag-a-lope, I utilized all items that came in the kit, with the exception of the
". . . because you're awesome" stamp. The gold cording, the diecut flower, the stamp in the center of the flower, the little decorative dot in the center of that, as well as the pale blue banners all were part of the kit.
To seal the bag-a-lopes, I used one of the stamps that came in the kit on one of the kit's adhesive-backed round stickers. Yay! A nifty, adorable treat holder!
