Are you ready for S'mores?

For my Project of the Month for Lizzie Anne Designs, I had the opportunity of making a fun summer time project! I used The Great Outdoors set to make this:

The Great Outdoors Digital Papers were also used to assemble the treat bag. Here are some very simple instructions for assembling this project:

Utilizing two 8 1/2" x 11" sheets of the Great Outdoors Trees paper - cut and adhere together vertically to create an 18" x 6" single sheet. Fold two creases at the bottom center leaving approx. 2 - 2 1/2 inches.

Adhere one piece of cardboard at the center bottom for sturdiness. Cut out a sheet from the Great Outdoors Flannel paper and adhere on top of the cardboard.

Lay a scallop die on the front of bag and trace, cut out shape.

Cut 1 1/2" strip of the Great Outdoors Smore Fun paper and adhere directly on top and across the scallop shaped opening.

Use border punch and trim the very top of bag.

Take cellophane bag and fill with marshmallows, chocolate bars, graham crackers, and wooden sticks. Shape, flatten, and tie at the top of bag with a 1/2" grosgrain ribbon.

Insert between front and back flaps of the bag. Fold both front and back flaps upwards and secure at top left and right ends with a stapler.

Stamp and color owl onto white cardstock. Stamp multiple leaves, color, trim, and adhere on the edges of the die cut shape.

Layer owl on a sheet of Flannel paper.


Use adhesive foam to adhere owl image onto upper center of the bag.
