Jack Blog Hop

Welcome to our Jack Blog Hop! All the projects in this hop will showcase the Jack Paper Pack (x7222B Jack Paper Pack). A Blog Hop is a big 'circle' of projects that you see by 'hopping' from one person's blog to another.
If you are coming from Gerri's Blog you are on the right track.

This paper pack is my most favorite one from the Expressions 2 book. I cannot wait to get my camping layouts done! There are SO many other ways to use this paper pack of course...
Male cards are the obvious choice, however, I've seen some cute female cards done with this paper and don't forget treat bags!

Today I made a treat bag with the tree pattern in the paper pack:
I made a 2,4,6,8 Bag (you can look it up online, or check back here tomorrow for instructions on how to put it together). My bag started with a 6x8 1/2" piece of the tree pattern paper. The finished size is 2" on all sides and 4" tall.

Of course, I had to use the cute Bear Stamp Set and also the August Stamp of the Month! So Fun!
For the sign, I used the 'chalk board' from the Stamp of the Month (School Year). I cut out a stamped image of the chalk board in Black Ink on Espresso Cardstock (dark side) and adhered a piece of black cardstock to the center and wrote on it with the Chalk Marker. The post was cut off of a second chalkboard that I stamped.
The Bear is stamped in Espresso Ink on the light side of Espresso Cardstock, Ruby ink on White Daisy Cardstock for the mug and cut them all out with the Thin Cuts.

I adhered the sign with adhesive, letting it hang over the side of the bag and adhered the bear to the front of the bag with 3-D Foam Dots (regular, not thin). I also put a small Foam Dot under the Coffee Cup and adhered the arms to the cup and side of the bear so it looks like his arms are out in front of him.
I put a little treat (new Hershey's cookie treat bars) inside for my hubby.
Then I punched two holes and tied some Juniper Twine (from the Whimsy Ribbon Pack).

Here you can see the 3-D Foam Dots under the bear:

This is such a cute way to give a small treat! You can add this little goodie to a lunch bag/box and make someone's day!
