Simply Sweet for Trick or Treat

Heather's Share Your Spark Friday

This weeks addition of share your spark Friday over on Heather's blog is to make something other than a card. YES!! This is just what I needed! Time to move away from the cards! Time to make something fun with those awesome tools and supplies I have that are collecting dust!

These little treat bags were fast fast fast to make. Perfect for "think simple...think A Muse" style --
don't ya think :) Stamp, fold, embellish, DONE! OK...there's a little more to it than that....but that pretty much sums it up.

These would be perfect to give out as little thank you treats at a stamping party, open house, etc. I plan on filling them up with Halloween M&M's and giving them to all my kids and grandkids.

Using my Big Kick, I cut out the bags with cardstock and then stamped on them. One little piece of sticky tape is all that's needed to put them together. Next I stamped the ghosts & pumpkins on cardstock and applied glitter with a glue pen. Ghosts are cut out - pumpkins punched with circle punch and attached to bag with dimensionals.The little tags are actually the insides of the bag handles. I didn't have a stamp small enough...so I wrote on them by hand. (Not the best...but hey...I tried.) The thread I used to tie them on is called Bakers Twine from Martha Stewart. I got it last year after Halloween on clearance. I totally knew I bought that for something! ha ha ha

Thanks Heather for getting me out of making cards today :)
