Hello Stampin’ Friends ~ I’m here but limping along on a not so stable laptop, so it’s going to be a quick post to share these cute little treat pouches that I made for you!
Each of these little cuties were make from the “Cute Halloween” Designer Series paper and a few other accessories which I’ll share as I go.
This sheet of designer paper has the polka dots on one side and Pumpkin Pie and Black stripes on the other. I used the Black Organdy Glitter Ribbon and the “Little Delights” stamp set. I also used the “Cute Stars Adhesive Backed Sequins” on this one!
I actually used the “Cute Stars Adhesive Backed Sequins” on all of my Halloween Pouches …
I used a more subtle pattern on this sheet of the “Cute Halloween” Designer paper … I then highlighted it with a cut out of another sheet of the designer paper. That little bat trick-or-treating is just too stinkin’ cute!! I will share more designs along with instructions as soon as I hunt down a new computer … I don’t know what happened 😦 But … I’ll be back!!
Thanks for hanging out with me as I limp through my “technology” issues!
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!
