Sneaks Day 3: S'more Fun!

You've come back for S'more Flourishes Fun? Well we're bringing it to you today! And for some more outdoor fun today - we think this set might be one of our favorites! Introducing the very darling....


 S'moreFunGraphic 

Get on the road again with this summer inspired set designed to share S'more Fun! From a darling daisy clad lantern and a vintage RV ready for summer to finger licking good S'mores fresh off the fire, this set is sure to bring smiles! This 4 by 6" set features three main images, an accent image plus four all-occasion sentiments. 

On to my creation.... I thought with summer fun, camping, kids camp, etc. that a single-serving size for S'mores would be a blast to create! And...... this is what the finished project looks like!


I started with a small brown paper bag. It's the kind you can buy at craft stores -- not the standard lunch size. I embossed it using a wood grain embossing folder and that served as the base. From there, I stamped my image on Flourishes Classic White Card Stock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored my image up with Copic Markers (see link list below for supplies used). To make sure my bag stayed closed, I thought about it and realized that if I added the stamped image to the front on a matted circle, I could tuck the decorative top underneath it -- keeping the bag closed! So, that's what I did. I also added a sentiment flag that I paper pierced and added a button to with twine. See?


And here's a peek at the project from the side. I took the Labels Seventeen Die, cut, embossed and then folded it in half, securing the back half of the fold to the back side of my bag. The front I left without adhesive so it could be opened and closed again and again. 


I just think the s'more image that is a part of this set is completely darling! Love the ooey gooey s'mores paired with those darling wildflowers and of course -- some mallows ready to roast! 


And that, my friends, is it!  Stick some marshmallows inside with a few graham squares and mini Hershey bars and you have some single-serving size fun ready for those pint sized people in your life! The flourishes team has some very fun summer inspired ideas to show you with this set, so drop on over and visit the Design Team today to see them all, and don't forget you have another chance to see.....

You're just full of great ideas, Julie! I love how you tucked the flap behind the circle die to keep it closed, and the woodgrain embossing on the bag is genius! Super cute stamp, too!

One sweet card! Whew! S'mores and a wet soak field ready to roast some flood debris, grahams, Hersheys, and marshmallows! Two good events on one damp to wet evening along the flood plain. I'd love to send your yummy card to the landowner who decided to invite all the flood victim families along his road for a clean up celebration/ S'more roast. Good tastes for good work, well done. Your card is great all the way through. Keep Looking UP!

Then you had to go and create such a charming front with your perfectly colored image and little topper with the button and flag...What a fantastic idea!! LOVE this project!! I told my family we're BBQ-ing this weekend complete with a fire and s'mores. This set is killing me!!

Now I have to admit I had to google s'mores. The Australian campfire treats don't seem anywhere near as delicious. I definitely feel like I have been missing out over all the years I've been camping.
What a great idea to make a treat bag. Love the woodgrain and your copic colouring is gorgeous.
