Taylor Tuesday

I love making little Halloween treats! The challenge for me is not finding time to make the treats, but in remembering to give them out before Halloween! lol. I was staring at the cellophane bags that I always keep on hand and wondering how I could do a little different spin on the traditional treat topper idea. This is what I came up with! I used the costumed cuppies from the Trick or Sweet stamp set along with a Nestabilities scalloped rectangle and ribbon from the TE store (and of course some yummy Halloween colored peanut butter M&M's). Here are a few pictures to show you the step-by-step process for these simple treat bags:




1. I started with the Nestabilities scalloped rectangle die cut and folded it in half.







2. I used the Stampin' Up horizontal slot punch to punch a hole in the center of the folded edge.










3. I threaded a piece of double-edge polka dot ribbon around the candy-filled cello bag and through the punch in the top of the scalloped rectangle piece.









4. Then to hold it all together I stapled the ribbon and scalloped rectangle together at the bottom.










That's it for these sweet treats! Don't miss a "sneak" sneak peek of one of my favorite creations for the next release on my personal blog today... click here to check it out! Stay tuned tomorrow for the more sneak peeks on the TE blog and a cupcake-alicious creation from Charmaine here on the SASI blog! Thanks for stopping by today!

I love these treat bags. The ribbon is a great addition. I've made treat bags a lot and was really tired of just a header. Great job!
