HSS Halloween Theme Challenge #86

Good Morning Stampers!!! I had so much FUN making these bags for this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments Halloween Theme Challenge. I love giving out treats to my kids teachers and to our teachers at church in Primary.  I am making a BUNCH of these for a slew of people- check it out!!!

Super cute bags that you can make for any occasion!  These are SUPER easy and fast to make and the large enough to fit a variety of things like chapstick, lip gloss, square chocolates, small bag of candy, jewelry, and MUCH more!!!

Click on over to HSS to play along this week- there will be SO many great things to be inspired by!
I HAD to use my little trick-or-treating owl for this project!  I got this Hostess set for FREE at Convention this year and have been DYING to use him on a project.  I stamped him with VersaMark Ink on Old Olive card stock and covered him in black embossing powder.  Then I heat embossed him and he turned out SO good- and shiny, me LOVES shiny things!!!  You can see I did the same thing on a piece of Pumpkin pie card stock and then JUST cut out the treat bag and popped it up with dimensionals.
Ok, so can you tell that I used the glimmer paint for his mask and his treat bag.  Since the embossing powder is raised it creates this perfect well around his eyes and I PACKED on the glimmer!!!  I added A LOT, but in person his little mask just SHIMMERS!!!  I of course had to go back and add in a border around my designer label punch and dots on my scallop oval punch too!!!

Here you can get a peek see of the inside, I need to find some gross or spooky candy treats for the inside of these bags.  How fun would it be to have a bag full of gummy fingers or something, gum eye balls… Hhmmm the ideas are coming.

I secured the ribbon handles to the bag using Olive brads- easy and they are shiny!!!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project and take a few moments and make something spooky or Halloween themed and play along with us at HSS!!!  Until next time~
