Spooktacular Halloween Treat Bag with Trendy Twine

Hey Crafty Friends-

Today I have a sweet treat bag featuring Orange Licorice Trendy Twine. It's super cute and any trick or treater would love to receive this bag on Halloween night.

To make the bag topper I cut a piece of craft cardstock at 4" x 4.75", folded it in half and inked the edges in brown ink. I cut a strip of patterned paper at approximately .75" x 6", inked the edges in brown and glued in place leaving the excess hanging over the right edge. I attached he Orange Licorice Trendy Twine bow on the left side to help with placement of the sentiment. I stamped and embossed my sentiment in white then cut my flag on the end. The ghosts were stamped on white cardstock then traced with diamond stickles and cut out.. They were then glued to the ends of the twine bow. The moon is a 1" circle punched from glitter cardstock, slightly inked with orange ink and popped up on a foam dot. The bats were randomly stamped in black to finish it off. For those of you wondering the stamp set is called Happy Haunting by Lawn Fawn.

This project was so easy, so cute, and one of my all time faves! I hope you love it and will try making one yourself. The twine really pops on this bag and just wouldn't look right without it.

  3. Hi Kerri,
    What an adorable gift bag! I'm a new-comer to paper-crafting (card-making, especially), and already completely (and happily) addicted, so I hopefully you don't mind if I replicate a couple of these for my niece and nephew.
    I'm beginning to develop a "must have" yearning for Trendy Twine - and your showcasing here just adds fuel to the flame!! Thanks for sharing and inspiring.
