Halloween Treat Bag

If you're anything like me, you may find that you need a few last minute treats for friends, co-workers or neighbors. The packaging can stay simple and quick, but don't forget to add a special touch by adding a handmade tag.

I used a glassine bag to hold my treats and secured it with some black and white twine. But it's the tag that really sets it off. I started with a plain white tag and added some bits of patterned paper I had lying on my desktop, including a bit of Coverlet from the Mirelle collection and an unexpected addition...a bit of paper from my Silver Valley 6x6 paper pad! Yep, that's right, I used some leftover Christmas paper on my Halloween tag! I thought the silver houndstooth paper would go just great with this project and I love to break out of the traditional orange and black.

A few embellishments were added from the Salem Heights chiplets and I was all set! Now that's one special treat!


Stamps: Papertrey Ink

This is such a cool idea. Very easy to make and perfect when you have to make a lot of them. Thank you very much.
