Halloween Treat Bag Topper

0

Hi Everyone, 

With Halloween just a few short days away, I wanted to share with you this too cute to spook Halloween treat bag toppers that I created for my Poppystamps design team project. These cute Pastel Halloween treat bag toppers will be used to package up a few Halloween treats for my coworkers. Now if you’re not familiar with Pastel Halloween, which is a new trend for Halloween, its simply taking the Halloween theme and decorating in pastel colors like pink, purple and teal instead of traditional orange, green and dark purple. The idea is for Halloween to be more cute instead of scary and gory. I love anything pastel, so designing with a Pastel Halloween theme is right up my alley.

To create my treats bag toppers, I first cut a piece of black cardstock to 4.25 inches wide x 4.5  inches long. Then I folded and scored the cardstock on the 4.5 side in half at 2.25. inches.  Next I cut each of my pastel pink, purple and teal pieces of cardstock with the zig zag stripes die. I then assembled the zig zag stripe pattern onto the folded black cardstock base using a piece of each of the three pastel colors.

Next I cut out two ghosts from the Scary Ghost die and adhered them to the bag topper with some foam tape. I then cut a strip of black cardstock and stamped the sentiment A Halloween Hello from the Halloween fun stamp set in Versamark ink. I sprinkled on some white embossing powder over the inked sentiment and heat embossed it. I adhered the sentiment on top of the Zig Zag stripes with some foam tape. Viloa!  Now you have a cute Pastel Halloween Treat Bag Topper to dress up your gifts.

This project was so easy and fun to make. I made several of these bag toppers and attached them to the top of my treat bags filled them with a mixture of with halloween themed goodies. Some of my bags contained halloween themed chocolates, while others contained halloween themed magnetic list pads and pencils. For the bags that contained the chocolates, I used the celebrated brand treat bags from Michaels. For you next gift, try dressing up your packaging with a cute bag topper.  

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed today’s project. 

Poppystamps Holiday Blog Blitz

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all are enjoying your day. Today I am sharing a project I made for the Poppystamps Holiday and Winter Blog Blitz. On September 1, 2019, I became an now official member of the Poppystamps design team. I am so excited to be amongst these talented ladies creating projects for the awesome stamps and dies from Poppystamps.

Today’s project  is a quick and easy tag showcasing items from the Poppystamps September release. For those of you who like to get a jump start on Christmas, this clean and simple tag can easily be massed produced for your Holiday gift packaging.

To get started, you will need the second to largest tag frame from the Double Stitch Tag Frames along with our new Warm Wishes Gift Card Cup and Magical Cauldron dies. First I die cut the Tag and frame from a piece of Kraft card stock using my Gemni Junior die cutting machine. With the tag die cut, I placed the cauldron die in the center of the cards stock ensuring the steam was placed near the top of the tag. I then die cut cauldron from the tag.  

Next I  took the Warm Wishes Gift Card Cup die and cut the cup twice; once from a white piece of card stock and then again from a chocolate piece of card stock. With some scissors I cut the warm wishes sentiment from each of the cups.  With my distress ink blending tool, I color the white cup die cut with some candied apple distress oxide ink and colored the white warm wishes sentiment with mowed lawn distress oxide ink. 

Next I adhered the green colored sentiment onto my candied colored cup with some 3M foam tape. I then outlined the  sentiment with my black micron pen to make the sentiment pop. To assemble the tag, I placed the tag frame and tag onto a piece of white card stock with some liquid glue and trimmed the edges with my scissors. 

I then adhered the cup onto the tag right over the die cut caldron with some 3M foam tape. Don’t you just love how the  cup looks as though it has steam coming from it. Next I took the brown warm wishes die cut and placed that onto of the tag just above the cup with some foam tape. To embellish the cup with the appearance of whip cream, I took my Marvy snow marker and brushed some white ink over the sentiment.  Then I heated the ink with my heat gun to make it puff up like whip cream

For the finishing touches on the tag, I whole punched a circle at the top of the tag and added some lime green ribbon and christmas theme twine from my stash. I really liked how this tag turned out and how quickly it all came together. 

Thanks for joining me today for this quick and easy Christmas tag. I hope you were inspired to create one or two for yourself.
