Hello Stampin’ Friends,
Today I made you a cute little treat bag from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits that are currently on Sale during our Weekly Deals (ends Monday).
With Halloween just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to team up the Treat Bag Thinlits Dies with the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper and the beautiful Black Glimmer paper! When cutting out your bag … you want to make sure the pattern is going in the same direction. Easiest way is to keep the “zigzag or pinking” edge up when placing your dies onto the paper.
Don’t you think this designer paper is cute? If you look closely … you will see that those crows are actually sitting on gravestones! And the other side of this paper? Well take another close look … you will see little jack-o-lantern faces! Too cute.
I cut the banner (which is included with the dies) out of the left over piece of designer paper. The “For You” (also included) I cut from a 1-1/2″ wide strip of Black Glimmer paper. I kept it in the center so I could put the banner over the top ( No Waste! ) then I simply trimmed the ends to match the banner.
How simple was that!? I used Fast Fuse to adhere my edges because it’s a bit stronger than the Snail and much easier that the old sticky strip. Then a few dimensionals to pop up my words and I was done!
I like it because it fits a Gift Card in … but a candy bar would be good too! Oh yes, and you could give them a sneak peek by cutting a window into your treat bag. Would you like to see a sample of that tomorrow?
Hope you enjoyed my little project today! And don’t just think of Halloween … You could use these as a table dressing for Thanksgiving or to tuck the gift cards in for a Tree of Giving at Christmas. The possibilities and gift giving opportunities are endless!
Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me!
Hope your today is wonderful ~
