I chose to do Halloween today, as it is coming up and I needed to make something for my son's class, so this is what I came up with:
For this cute little treat bag, I just used some small treat bags I found at Hobby Lobby and some basic black, orange and white cardstock from my stash. The ribbon is also from Hobby Lobby. For the topper itself, I cut a 4"x 4.5" rectangle using my Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and black cardstock. Then, I scored it halfway along the 4.5" side and folded it; after that, I cut a small rectangle out of the middle (two slits) to fold backward to form a pencil holder. Then, I wrapped the ribbon around the bottom of it and attached it using glue dots. For the decoration, I cut a 2.25" scallop circle from Accent Essentials out of white cardstock (the Shift key of accent31) and a 2.75" out of orange. On the white, I stamped a candy corn from some stamps in my stash and colored it with some Copic markers I won from Erica (thank you, Erica!!) Then I stamped the "Trick or Treat" from another stamp stash over the coloring. After that, I mounted the white scallop on the orange with some foam strips and then mounted the whole thing on the black with more foam strips. Then, I stapled the whole thing to the treat bag. Note: staple the black rectangle part BEFORE attaching the decoration in the middle.....would just be easier. :)
This is a very simple Halloween project, but I tried something new - coloring with my Copics - so I'm happy with myself. And, I think the kids will love this as well: they get candy AND a pencil and erasers. :)
I hope you've enjoyed my project and, again, don't forget to go by My Cricut Craft Room to see all the Festive Friday projects the Design Team has going on!
