Some Sweet Halloween Treats


Yesterday I whipped these goodies together for my son's pre-school class. They literally took minutes to put together-so easy. 


The bags are the Sizzix Bag w/Scallops Die from Stampin' Up! They are punched out from 1 die and were pieced together with the two way glue pen...so easy! I used our new Cast-A-Spell Designer Series Paper. Isn't it fun? I love that it's two sided so the recipient has a fun view when they open the bag as well. I have used these bags as favors at parties and baby showers. The possibilities are as endless as the paper you use to make them:) The 2-Way Glue pen made quick adhering the sides together.

The Batty for You set was the perfect match for the occasion. I started by stamping all the images in Basic Black ink onto Whisper White card stock and punching it out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. Next, I used my Stampin' Write Markers to color each image and stamped that onto Whisper White card stock as well. (HINT: Stampin' Write Markers are perfect for coloring images with detailed color. Here I used the Pumpkin Pie marker to color the Jack-o-Lantern and Old Olive marker to color the vine, stem, and leaves.) My 1" Circle Punch allowed me to punch out the image only. This image was adhered with a Stampin' Dimensional onto the larger circle with the sentiment. The entire image was adhered to the bags' lid with a few mini glue dots.

Of course you have to personalize each bag. For this one  I took a piece of Basic Black card stock and punched it with the Modern Label punch. Next I punched a piece of Whisper White card stock using the Word Window punch. The sentiment "happy haunting!" comes from a stamp in the Scary Skeleton set. This was stamped in Going Gray ink. I stamped the name of the recipient in Basic Black on top using the Calendar Alphabet & Numbers set. I added two eyelets (which we no longer carry unfortunately) for a pop of color. Mini glue dots were used to adhere the two together and attach it to the bag. All sorts of goodies were added to the bags and the kids loved getting something with their names on it.
