Witches Brew Treat

For my project today, using the new Punchy Potions stamp set, I made a Broom Treat by Martha Stewart. It was incredibly easy & fun to make and I had all the supplies on-hand. You will need 2 lunch sacks, some twigs from the yard (lol) and some candy to fill the bag!

First, in the bag I wanted to fill with candy, you cut strips 1" from the top of the bag with scissors. Then on the other 'outer' bag, you cut all the way down to the base (more tricky). Then, you put the treat filled bag on top of the strip cut bag and bring up the sides and secure with twigs inside and tie your ribbon. Click on Martha Stewart link for more photo instructions. Then you decorate your bag with whatever you'd like.

Here is a close up of the treat tag. I combined Punchy Potions Witches Brew with the Trick or Sweet witch, cute huh? I paper-pieced my witch with the Halloween Key Ingredients and colored with prismacolor pencils and copic & atyou spica markers for glittery shine. Easy & fun! If you venture to make some of these, please leave a link so we can see your creation! I bet these would be real cute made with the smaller lunch bags too.
