Friday Fun: Halloween Treat Toppers

Hi, crafty friends! I’m popping today in to share some treat toppers I made for a recent get-together with some of my best crafty gal pals:

Here’s my supply list for these toppers. (The actual sizes for your project will vary depending on what size treat bag you use.)

  • Spellbinders Labels 28 (I used the two largest dies to layer the paper and card stock.)
  • Spellbinders Lacey Circles die
  • Spellbinders Classic Circles die
  • Digital Stamp (Tickled Pink Stamps – “Lil Pinkette Witch Audrey”)
  • Sentiment stamp (Impress Rubber Stamps – Happy Halloween script)
  • Copic markers
  • Patterned paper (Graphic 45)
  • card stock (Core’dinations)
  • clear cellophane treat bags
  • a sweet treat

To make assembly easier, I die cut the card stock, paper, digital image and mat first.

Then, I colored each image, one section at a time. After coloring, I assembled each topper, inking the edges of the paper and centering it over the card stock, adhering, then folding it in half. Then, I added the image and its mat on top. Finally, I stamped the sentiment, cut each one out, and layered it on top of the image.

To attached the toppers, I folded the treat bag down and used a staple on each top corner to keep it closed.

Here’s a close-up of the finished topper:

These are really fun to make, and easy once you get all the pieces together. Hope you enjoyed these and were inspired to create some treat bag toppers of your own!
Hope you have a wonderfully creative weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Flutter By Wednesday #187

Happy Wednesday and welcome back for another Flutter By Wednesday challenge! Thanks to everybody who played along with us last week…your creations were fantastic!

If you weren’t able to join us last week, I hope you’ll play along with us this week! Our challenge for this week is embossing (any type). Don’t forget your fairy, butterfly or angel on your entry!

My card for this week features an adorable digi (Party Pinkette August) from Tickled Pink Stamps!

I made this card for my niece, Olivia, who recently celebrated her 8th birthday! I used both dry embossing (the pink cardstock mat around the stamp) and heat embossing (for the sentiment). Olivia loved that I made the girl on the card look like her!

Supplies: image (Tickled Pink Stamps), felt butterfly accent (SEI), patterned paper (Basic Grey – Sweet Threads), sentiment stamp (Paper Smooches), ribbon, glitter brads, cardstock (Stampin’ UP!), embossing powder, watermark ink, Copic markers, card base, opaque white and silver glitter pens.
