Sweet Treats for Halloween

halloween 3

Treat bags are always a hit at my Stampin’ events! I found this tutorial on Pinterest, from SU Demo Diane Barnes–Thanks Diane!!! I thought it would be fun to recreate them using the new “Freaky Friends” stamp set and coordinating Designer Series Paper!

step 1

Start with a piece of cardstock 8″ x 2″ and score at 3.5″ and 4.5″ using your Simply Scoring Tool

step 2

Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper 6.5″x 1.5″ and score at 1″, 3″, 4″, and 6″ using your Simply Scoring Tool (tip: the little markers make it SUPER easy to find your measurements–especially when you are going to score multiple sheets of paper)

step 3
 Punch both ends of your card stock with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch (the width is 2″ so it should be a perfect fit!)

step 4

I wanted to add a little texture to my card stock, so I ran it through the Big Shot with an embossing folder (tip: fold the card stock on one of the score lines and it will fit nicely in the embossing folder)

step 5

We’ve already scored the piece of DSP, so just wrap it around and secure it with a piece of sticky strip or a couple of mini glue dots.

step 6

Finish it off with a piece of ribbon, and layer your “Freaky Friends” image on a coordinating piece of card stock. Don’t forget the treats! You can fit three Hershey Nuggets inside–sweet 🙂

To emboss, or not to emboss, that is the question! Which one do you like best???

Are you coming???

My New Catalog Open House is tonight!!! WooHooo, I always look forward to a night out stampin’ with the girls! Here’s a sampling of one of the two cards we’ll be creating at tonight’s FREE event! Drop by anytime from 6-8pm at McAlister’s Deli in Jefferson City.


This clean and simple card is perfect for showcasing the 5 new In Colors: Baked Brown Sugar, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe,  Strawberry Slush, and Coastal Cabana. They are right on trend for the season, and are even more rich in person!


The Bitty Butterfly punches have been embossed to add a little texture, and are secured with mini glue dots.

And what about using your Simply Scored Tool to help add some direction. Those of you who like a little (or a lot) of bling could jazz up the butterflies with some rhinestone/pearl Jewels or embellishments, but I stayed simple on this card 🙂

Can’t make it to tonight’s event? Remember you can always order online, and I’ll mail the completed cards to you! Don’t forget to enter the hostess code 4BNZJFYE at checkout. All online orders placed by June 13th, are eligible for $25 in FREE Merchandise from the NEW Catalog!!!
