Posts Tagged ‘Treat Bags’
Once you’ve been “boo’d”, you place a sign in your window so other neighbors know you’ve been visited already for the year.
It’s a fun way to share treats and let the kids go around ringing doorbells and then running away
Here are the treat bags (featuring the Googly Ghouls stamp set – see it online) that we made up to leave on a couple of porches this year:
If you’re looking for a poem to include with your treats, here’s a link to one I found online.
Looking for a fun treat to make for holiday gifts? You know, the ones you always think about making to hand out to neighbors you see at the Post Office, or the clerk at the grocery store who always says something nice to you?
Oh wait – you haven’t gotten around to making those? Really? Well let me help you!! This is a really quick, really easy project that doesn’t use many supplies and is sure to put a smile on the face and in the heart of anyone who receives it from you!
Plus you can make about 20 of them in under an hour. That’s 20 smiles to share – won’t it feel great to share that happiness?

See how they fit together? The Petal Card Double Punch (see it online) is a perfect size for making little treat holders for the “minis” size of chocolates (Mmmmm….).
Here’s what you’ll do (picture yourself sharing these with friends!):
- Punch two petal card pieces for each candy. Place the candy inside one, put dabs of glue on three tabs of the other punched piece. Fold up and hold to adhere.
- Punch out ovals with the Small Oval Punch (see it online) from the Champagne Glimmer Paper (see it online)
- Stamp little trees (or another design) with the Merry Minis stamp set (see it online) and punch them with the matching Merry Minis Punch Pack (see them online).
- Layer all the pieces and put three treats into a perfectly sized 4 x 6″ Cellophane Bag (see them online).
- Tie with a piece of the sweet 1/4″ Sweater Trim (see it online).
- Add a cute little tag — if you don’t know who you’re going to give this to, then write something like “For You” instead of a specific name. Add a glimmer star with the Merry Minis Punch Pack (from above) and you’re all done!
So what do you think? I know you can do it!! If you make little treats to share this season, let me know – I’d love to hear about the smiles you’re spreading! And if you see me at the post office or at the IGA, maybe I’ll still have some left to share with you in person.

Yesterday my blog post used the clean & simple Googly Ghouls stamp set (see it online) for a fun fall card. Today I’m sharing another project with the same stamp set, only this time I used all the goodies from the Ghoulish Googlies Bundle (see it online) – both the stamp set AND the Designer Kit with the bags, ribbon and tags.
These little waxed paper bags are super fun – and they only come as part of the Designer Kit. This project was shared on stage at Convention this summer by Shannon West, complete with witchy costume for Shannon. I have to say that *I* didn’t wear a costume when I taught this project at Stamp Club in August, but we still got to make Shannon’s fun bags!
Curious about the fun technique used for the background? I can help you with that! It’s Double-Embossing, and uses both dry embossing with the Big Shot and heat embossing with Embossing Powder and your Heat Tool.
Here are the steps for Double-Embossing:
- Press Versamark Ink Pad directly onto the Chevron Embossing Folder (see it online). Use the Big Shot to dry emboss as usual.
- After dry embossing, pour heat embossing powder over surface. Shake off excess and heat emboss as usual.
Curious about the embossing powder I used to get both the black and the sparkle? I mixed Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (see it online) with some Basic Black Embossing Powder (see it online) – about half and half.
