Cupcake Challenge 15

Challenge 15 over on the Cupcake challenge blog was sweets and treats. All you had to do was incorporate sweets somewhere on your creation. We are going back to England this year for Christmas, but I want to put our tree up over here so its going up next week to make it worth while - a bit early for me, I usually don't get around to putting it up until the week before Christmas!! Anyway, what is a tree without some form of chocolate decorating it, so having found some chocolate euros (coins and notes!!!) in the supermarket, I decide to make a simple little bag to hang on the tree. I found a tutorial here for a double pocket bag that is really easy to make. I didn't use a 12 x 12 piece of paper as per the tutorial, I used an 8 x 8 piece and just adjusted the measurements accordingly. I used paper that was a free download from printable heaven, gold christmas ribbon, red and cream card and the sentiment was done on my computer using the font segoe script. I inked the sentiment with some gold ink to give it a more vintage feel and decorated the edge with some gold stickles.
