Treat Bags for Halloween

Hi all,

I decided to make some treat bags this Halloween season with some bags from Michaels. These are purple polka dot bags and I made the toppers with my Spellbinders die, Labels 4 and Lotus Pendent in black card-stock. The layers were cut out using October Afternoon’s Witch Hazel Collection, I just alternated patterns and used the largest and second largest die for this particular layering.

I topped the baggie off with some Halloween bakers twine and a punched out stamped image from a Walztingmouse stamp from the set: Midnight Feast

A simple, flat/wrapped chocolate or small cookie would work best inside.zTreat bag sample


Michaels Scrap-In on National Card Making Day! 5 Photos Included

Hi all, October 5th was National Card Making Day and appropriately the monthly Scrap-In was held and I had a whopping 5 students attend and couldn’t have been more thrilled! What a fun time we all had making cards, laughing, talking and sharing tips and our cards with one another. We demonstrated the Spellbinder Grand Caliber machine and the Martha Stewart corner and border punch sets. It couldn’t have gone better. I’ve attached a few pics of our cards and messy crafting table too. Nothing says “we’re makin’ stuff” than – an incredibly messy table, ha, ha!

Michales Stores holds their Scrap-Ins on the first Saturday of every month for $5 and students are encouraged to show up with their projects to work on. I welcome empty handed students as well to just come a play and gain inspiration for a craft. We always end up having a great time.
