It is such a great day when I receive an envelope from my upline Jill Olsen. As many of you know from previous posts, Jill sends us a card or project when we are in the top for her group the Creative Stampers in any month. Last week I was one of those which is always exciting. She sent me the above bag. I love it because it gives me a reason to show something with a Halloween theme. I have tried to have Halloween themed classes several times. I never get the sign ups I do with other classes so I tend to dwell on the other classes. This was a perfect way to show something I do not usually show.
The neat thing about this treat bag is that it is made from a medium crumb cake envelope. How much easier than that? Cut the top off and you have a bag. A banner was made with Elegant Eggplant cardstock and Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper. A strip was made with the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper to place horizontally across the bag. A bat was cut out using the Halloween Scenes Edgelits TM Dies. The Halloween Treat stamp was used for the greeting on the bag. The Halloween Night Baker's Twine was used to tie the ribbon at the top of the greeting.
For the photo I filled the bag with black licorice. I would recommend not just placing licorice in like I did and wrapping it in a food safe bag. If you do not like licorice there are so many other things you can fill the bag with.
Here is the best part. I received the bag because of this honor:
