Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | 12 Weeks of Halloween – Week 6
I can’t believe we’re half-way through this years’ series, boy that’s gone fast! I hope you’re enjoying the projects and getting lots of seasonal treat ideas 🙂 Today I have another bag made using the Gift Bag Punch Board, but a smaller one this time with a different closure.
I’ve seen these little bags everywhere on Pinterest, but used this tutorial by Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs. Erica has loads of tutorials for cute treat holders on her blog and lots of videos as well. If you love 3D projects as much as I do make sure you have a look around her blog for inspiration 🙂
These little cuties use a piece of 6″ x 10″ cardstock and are made using the small bag measurements. After you’ve made the basic bag turn your cardstock 180° and score the horizontal line all the way across, choose one of the front panels to have the lid and punch on either side of that panel. Remove all the cardstock either side of the lid and assemble the box as usual.
I decided to close my boxes with a belly band for easy access and used a strip of 1-1/2 x 10″ Spooky Night DSP. I simply finger folded this around my bag for a snug fit and joined the overlap at the bottom.
The decoration is all from the Seasonal Chums Bundle – a super cute bundle that stamps the front and back and die cuts the tags in just two steps. The thing that really sold me on this set are the 7 little extras in the framelit set. These are so cute and perfect to add to so many different projects, I know I’m going to my money’s worth out of them long before this catalogue ends 🙂
These stamps are perfect for lots of different colouring techniques and I did some very simple water colouring using Watercolour Pencils and an Aqua Painter. I stamped the pumpkins on Thick Very Vanilla cardstock which can only take light water colouring, so my colouring is not as perfect as I’d like it to be, but I think they still turned out quite sweet.
I assembled my elements on a Stitched Shapes circle and attached this to the belly band only with dimensionals. A quick and easy treat bag to put together!
I hope you liked my project today and I’ll be sharing more projects using this fun bundle over the next couple of months. I think this set will be one of the “keepers” in my forever stash, I can’t see those sweet images getting old and love all the extra embellishments that are included 🙂
