Treat Bag

The challenge this week at Delightful Challenges is to use flowers.  I probably should not admit this but I had this bag all done and then rechecked the challenge only to discover that I was to use flowers so their placement is not quite what I would have done if I had read the challenge properly to begin with.  Let's just chalk it up to a senior moment.  I also intended to fill the bag with cookies, which is why I chose the image but at the last moment, I decided I needed to have homemade cookies in the house like a hole in the head so I filled it with the mini Smarties boxes that my husband had stashed in the cupboard.  Fortunately, I can't eat chocolate so it is no hardship for me to give them up but he may have something to say about it.

Our sponsor this week is The Cutting Cafe and the bag I made is from a template you will find in her store.  It comes with a variety of cutting options and I just used the .pdf version and hand cut my bag.  The prize for the random winner is any 3 sets from their store.
