Since we no longer have trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood, I am making Halloween treat gifts for family and friends. Stampin’ Up! has a variety of packaging options making treat giving simple. I am using the 6″ x 8″ cellophane bags for the majority of the Halloween treat gifts and making bag toppers with the Celebration Labels Dies. There is one Halloween treat that uses a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box (for a special recipient!)
Tips for bag toppers:
To create the bag toppers, use the largest die from the Celebration Labels Dies to cut desired pattern from the Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper (on Sale until through October 31!) After cutting, score the center of the label. Attach to the bag using Stampin’ Seal+ and fold over the 6″ x 8″ Cellophane Bag (don’t forget to fill the bag with your treats first!). Embellish the bag topper using the Banner Year Stamp Set and the Little Treats Bundle products. This is a project to use cardstock from your scrap bin! Use Layering Circles dies to cut tags to add to the bag topper. Additional embellishments are: bats cut from the Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper using the coordinating Halloween Magic Dies, Wink of Stella (on spiders), Basic Rhinestone Jewels, Champagne Rhinestone Jewels, Metallic Mesh Ribbon and Glittered Organdy Ribbon.
Tip for coloring the Mini Paper Pumpkin Box:
Use the Mango Melody, Bumblebee and Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink Pads to swipe ink across the box exterior. I found it best to swipe in one direction with a color and then swipe in opposite direction for coverage. After adding the final color layer, spritz water to create the spotted appearance. Decorate as desired!
As you see in the photo above, I have made a number of Halloween treat gifts. Using different Halloween greetings and embellishments, each is slightly different. The Banner Year and Little Treats Stamp Sets have perfect sentiments to make small tags for different occasions. I still have a few treats remaining so will be finishing more bag toppers this weekend so they’ll be ready for gifting next week!
