Day 5 with MFT teasers...and Happy New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I hope you all had a fun and safe New Year's Eve.  We were home bodies and just invited some neighbors over. Hubby worked until around 8pm, so we were here waiting to celebrate with him.  Although my kids begged and pleaded....we did NOT make it to the strike of midnight, which is just FINE by me.  I LIKE  LOVE my sleep. LOL! How about you? Did you ring in the stroke of midnight?

Glad you are here sharing a little bit of the New Year with us. In case you haven't jotted down all the release day details.....you can read up on them here.

Now let's jump in with our à la mode previews. As always, there are two new cuties joining the line up. This month's ALM are: Dip Me in Chocolate, and Genie.

I've did up a treat bag full of DOVE Dark Chocolate....YUM!!!! I recylced a kraft bag (thanks, Inge!)  and decked it out with some stamps, a belly band and a tag using the new Dip Me in Chocolate à la mode.

I started by cutting two strips of Farmhouse (Oct.Afternoon) designer paper and attaching them end to end to create a long, 12inch strip. I roughly wrapped it around the bag to measure where the folds would be. The edges are decorated with strips of the Solid Bracket Border and stitched in place.

Check out the bag. I used the open hearts from the new Bunches of Hearts Flopsey Set to add some stampy detail and then gave it a good spritzing of the new Mister Huey's Calico White spray.

I tied a bow with plum pudding grosgrain and added another element of detail by slipping in the larger oval decorative doily duo die-namics, behind the tag.

Now look at the tag. I used some more of the solid bracket border with stitching, but this time to some polka dot dp (Picket Fences-lilybee designs). The sentiment was added to the File Tab die-namic.  I also gave my candy bar a real-foil-like look with a Glitter Gel Pen.



I attached this to the decked out kraft bag with a button and some twine! Ahhhh, I'm thinking I might just need to rip into this bag and eat those chocolates.  You would think I would learn to NOT buy the candy I like.  I already finished off the rest of what was left.

Hop on over to Kim's Blog for the list of today's teaser posts. Happy New Year!
