Half Size Mini Treat Bag Blog Hop!

My friends and I--Patty, Cindee and me--get together as often as we can to go shopping for Craft Room supplies as well as to do some stamping.  Well, last week, we got together to work on some Halloween crafts using new products from the 2015 Holiday Catalog.  And did we had a blast!

As much as I would love to show you every project we made, for now I'm only here to share this adorable Half Size Mini Treat Bag that Cindee showed us how to make.  I'll be sure to share the rest of the good stuff in the next couple of weeks, but hopefully this will wet your whistle until then.

To make this half size mini treat bag, we used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies but only the part that makes the side of the mini treat bag.  We cut two of those side pieces from patterned paper from the Happy Hauntings Designer Series Paper collection and adhered them with our new and wonderful Tear & Tape Adhesive.  That stuff is magic!

Stampin' Up!'s Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies

Once we were done with the bags, we did the following:
  • Adorned the bag with another strip of patterned paper from the Happy Hauntings Designer Series Paper collection, 
  • Added a 1/4 piece of one of the Spider Web Doilies,
  • Stamped a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with Sweet Hauntings Stamp Set images (one is fussy cut and backed with a Stampin' Dimensional) and punched it out using the Note Tag Punch,
  • Added some Happy Hauntings Designer Washi Tape to the bottom of the tag,
  • Added an Iced Rhinestone Embellishment colored with a black Sharpie, and 
  • Used some Very Vanilla Thick Baker's Twine to tie the tag onto the bag.

Isn't this little treat bag cute?!  I hope you will give these bags a try.  They're fun and easy to make!  

Once you're done making them, you can stuff them with pencils, licorice, or some Pringles Stixs like we did.  They are perfect for Halloween treats for your child's class Halloween party and for the trick-o-treaters too.

 You will find all of the instructions on how to make these bags on Cindee's blog.  And you will find all of the supplies listed below, but please note that the Holiday products will not be available for purchase until September 1st.

Please stop by both Cindee Wilkinson and Patty Bennett's blogs to see how their bags turned out.
