Challenge #3 Treat Boxes (Anything But a Card)

Hi, it's Harriet today with my take on this week's challenge...anything but a card.  I don't create many 3D projects but this was fun to do!  I have these CD sleeves/envelopes that have the circle cut out and covered with acetate so I used it for the treat bag.  One treat that kids love to take to school are these goldfish crackers and the CD sleeve reminded me of a fish bowl.  So I used one of my favorite cat images from Woodware USA's Forbes and Friends set along with paw prints and fish scales.  Forbes is is watercolored and cut out with a circle Nestability and attached with glue dots to the inside if the bag.  I think this fat cat loves goldfish crackers as much as kids do!
I hope this inspired you to make a treat bag ... or anything other than a card! And if you do create something please provide a direct link to your creation in the comments section of this post so we can see!
Supplies: Stamps - Forbes and Friends; Ink - Versafine Onyx Black; Paper - CD Sleeve, PaperTrey; Misc - Watercolor pencils, Aquabrush, Nestability, Goldfish Crackers
