Summer Treats with Doodlebug's Fruit Stand Collection
Today I'm sharing some gift ideas for sweet summer treats over at Doodlebug's blog using their adorable little bags with one of my all time favorite collections, Fruit Stand!
First up is a treat bag using the darling cherries from the collection. I created my tag using a sticker from the collection which I traced onto printer paper and then cut out slightly smaller and adhered to the back of the sticker to cover up the stickiness. For my cherry border I used a strip of patterned paper topped with a fancy frills border sticker which I cut in half lengthwise to form a scallop on both sides. I finished it off my bag with a button added to the center of each cherry.
Next up I have a strawberry themed treat. For my tag I wanted to use the little strawberry sticker tab but it wasn't quite fitting with my stamped sentiment so I simply took my craft knife with a metal edged ruler and trimmed it down. A few Ladybug and Bubblegum Mini Jewels were added to the strawberries as a finishing touch.
I rounded out my trio of summer bags with a citrus theme! The little sticker tag had a green lime on it that didn't quite match the rest of my bag so I covered it up with a darling orange doodle pop.
To carry out each my themes I used a lot of stickers from both the 12x12 This and That stickers and Fruit Stand Icon Stickers, along with coordinating twine and a stamp from Lawn Fawn's Happy Summer set.
These were so much fun to make and I'm hoping they will really brighten each recipients day! :)
Thanks for stopping by. :)
