Bewitching Stars Treat Bags

It’s time to prepare for Halloween!  Today’s project features Bewitching Stars Treat Bags.  The “bewitching” in the title comes from using the Bewitching Bundle in the Stampin’ Up! July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. The bundle contains the Bewitching Stamp Set and the Witch Hat Builder Punch.  In the same catalog, you’ll find the Stars Treat Bags.  The treat bags are sturdy and will make the perfect table favor to stand at each place setting.  And for the sentiment, you’ll find the “Boo!” stamp in the Cottage Wreaths Stamp Set (or select your favorite Halloween sentiment to use!)  

 

Bewitching Stars Treat Bags Project Details:
  • Stamp the witch hat and the shoes with legs images onto Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  TIP: the Stamparatus is the perfect tool to use when stamping the images.
  • If you selected the dotted witch hat as above, select your desired Stampin’ Blends colors to color the dots.  Also, color the leggings and buckle on the shoes.  Colors used on my project were: Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Real Red and Daffodil Delight. 
  • Use the coordinating Witches Hat Builder Punch to cut the hat shape.  
  • Fussy cut the shoes with legs image (or if you own a Scan & Cut or other electronic scan/die cutting machine, the image can be easily cut. NOTE: use a pencil to connect the two legs together so they cut in one piece – erase after cutting)
  • Add the witch hat to the legs then attach to the lower right front edge of the Stars Treat Bag using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • If desired, stamp Boo! onto Basic White cardstock using Parakeet Party.  If you have the retired circle punches, 3/4″ & 1″, use them to cut the sentiment and a piece of black cardstock to layer the sentiment. Otherwise, use the smallest two Stylish Shapes circle dies. 
  • Loop into a bow shape the Parakeet 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon and attach to the treat bag using Stampin’ Seal+.  Next, add the layered sentiment over the bow using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Next is the fun part – fill the bag with treats!!!

Diaper Fold Halloween Treat Holder

Whenever I need a quick and easy treat holder, I like to create a diaper fold treat holder.  It’s the perfect size for holding a small treat.  Best of all, multiples can be created quickly.  Even though we no longer have visits from treat or treaters, I like to give small treats to family and friends.  So, I am am making some diaper fold Halloween Treat Holders using the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper and the Cutest Halloween Bundle.  Since the designer series paper pack is 6″ x 6″, there is no cutting necessary making the project even easier!  Add a Halloween sentiment, some embellishment, then fill with a treat and it’s done: easy-peasy!  I demonstrate how to make the diaper fold Halloween Treat Holder in the assembly video below.

Halloween Themed Fingernail File Holders

Recently while shopping at T.J. Maxx, I found Halloween themed fingernail files and wouldn’t you know, the nail files coordinate with several Stampin’ Up! products.  So of course, I “had” to purchase them!  And naturally added to my project agenda was creating Halloween themed fingernail file holders for gifting to friends.  I settled upon one of my favorite wraps to use for holding the fingernail files – an origami wrap.  Often this design is maybe called chopstick wrap or pencil holder wrap so it’s quite versatile.  As you’ll see in my video below, the Halloween themed fingernail file holders are easy to make and come together quickly.

Fingernail File Holders

Project Materials & Details: 
  • Cutest Halloween Bundle
  • Cute Halloween 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (refer to Assembly Video) 
    • Score one 6″ x 6″ piece of designer series paper at 1-1/2″, 3″ and 4-1/2″. Burnish score lines with bone folder.
    • On the upper right corner, fold the corner in so that it meets the score 4-1/2″ line and use bone folder to crease.  
    • Then on the upper left corner, fold this corner to the middle 3″ score line and crease the fold with the bone folder.
    • On the left lower corner, fold in to the 1-1/2″ score line and crease with bone folder.
    • Next, fold the right side in to the middle and wrap the left side around and attach at the back with strong adhesive. 
  • Layering Circles Dies (used the 2-1/4″ scalloped die & the 1-7/8 circle die)
  • Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad
  • Basic White and Highland Heather cardstocks (scrap pieces)
  • Paper Snips (use for fussy cutting images from designer series paper)
  • Cute Stars Adhesive Backed Sequins
  • Tailormade Tag Dies (optional – used for tag on the Bat fingernail file holder)
  • Seal+ Adhesive
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Bone folder

Decorate as desired using images from the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper and stamp sentiments from the coordinating Cutest Halloween Stamp Set.  If you prefer, you can also stamp images using the Cutest Halloween Stamp Set.  But as you can see in the video, using the images from the designer series paper makes the project even quicker!

ASSEMBLY VIDEO

In addition to the Halloween themed fingernail files, I also purchased fall themed fingernail files.  Wouldn’t you know, that Stampin’ Up! also has stamps and paper to coordinate with them!!!  For the fall theme, the Nuts About Squirrels Stamp Set provided a perfect finishing touch to the fingernail file holders. 

Nuts About Squirrels Fingernail File Holders

The themed fingernail files and the coordinating holders make perfect “little something” gifts!  I hope you have fun creating them for your friends and family!

Halloween Treat Gifts

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!) 

Halloween Treat Bags

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. 

Halloween Treat Bos

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!  

Halloween Treats

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!
