Tim Holtz Distress Clear Embossing Ink by Ranger


1. Repeatedly stamp leaft onto bag withe clear ink. Cover with glitter and shake off excess. (You could use a glue pad or powder for this, but I just used the clear embossing powder and it stuck just fine. I think the waxy quality of the bag keeps the ink on the surface and allows the glitter to stick.)
2. Place cookie pop in bag and tie closed with string or ribbon.
3. Punch holes (like button holes) in chipboard flower and tie it onto the bag.
4. Wrap thin strips of cardstock around a skewer to curl, then unwind them a bit. Glue them to the back of the chipboard.
5. Add sentiment sticker.
