More Halloween Goodies

My son asked me if I would make goody bags for him to take to school --- on Tuesday last week! Yikes! Nothing like waiting until the last minute huh?! Since I was pressed for time, I needed to make something that was easy. I used Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black paper and ran it through the Big Shot with the Two Tags die and embossed them with the Spider Web embossing folder. Once I had them all cut and embossed, I sponged over the spider web with Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White ink to bring out the spider web image more. I used a glue dot to hold the candy down and tied them up with some ribbon. I punched some bats out with the Bitty Bat punch and wrote "From Tanner" on them. Easy peasy! Thanks for looking!

Halloween Goody Bags

Here are some goody bags I made for the kids in my class. I used the Fancy Favor XL die to make the bags. I used up some Summer Sun, Only Orange, and YoYo Yellow retired textured paper for them. Once I ran them through the Big Shot, I stamped the pumpkin from the Batty for You set on Whisper White and punched it out with the 1 1/4" circle punch. I punched out some scallop circles and adhered the stamped pumpkins on them. I then adhered the entire thing onto the bag. For the handle, I used my crop a dile to make holes on the sides and used some jute rope had. I punched out some tags with the small tag punch and tied them on with some linen thread. I filled some cello bags with goodies for the kiddos and tied them up with some whisper white ribbon. The kids were so excited to get something from their teacher! Thanks for looking!
