I love Halloween and I love treats!! StampinUp! has done a phenomenal job with the Halloween stamp sets, DSP and embellishments this year and I have had so much fun playing with them. For this project, I decided to use the “Box in a Bag”. I found a great tutorial with a video on Splitcoaststampers ( http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/boxinabag/), and once I decided on the papers I wanted to use, the construction of the box was a snap! It looks like it takes a long time, so you can really impress your recipient! Of course I had to use one of the awesome spider web doilies, too! The sentiment and doily are popped up with dimentionals, and the bag is tied shut with bakers twine. I like the size of this bag-I followed the directions from the tutorial, so it is 5 1/2 inches high and it has plenty of room for candy or home made treats. If you want a smaller bag, all you have to do is cut the DSP down to the size you want. I love that versatility!
Ink: Memento Black
Paper: Tangelo Twist, Whisper White, Happy Haunting DSP
Misc: Basic Black Baker’s Twine, Spider Web doily, Circle Framelits, Scallop Circle punch
