What's brewin'?

The weekend is nearly here...which means there are only two weeks left till Halloween. Are you ready? Do you party, decorate and dress up? I've put up a few decorations but still need to decorate my pumpkins. This week I'm sharing a few Halloween party ideas with you.

I love the Cottage Cutz bubbly cauldron with the frog, bones and eyeball and used it on this fun door hanger. This would make a cute party invitation with all the essential info printed on the back.

The border punch is Martha Stewart, drippy goo.

Li'l Frankie, also a Cottage Cutz die, adorns this party favor treat bag. The treat bag is so easy to make.

I printed a poem on a tag and tied it to the back of my treat bag with the ribbon.

Treat Bag


You'll need mini cellophane bags and cardstock. From one sheet of 12x12 cardstock you can make 4 treat bags. For each treat bag, cut cardstock 9 1/2 inches long by 3 inches wide.

Make the first score mark at one inch. Measure 3 1/2 inches from the score mark and score again, measure 3/4 inch and score again, another 3/4 inch and score again. You'll have four score marks total.

I have a Scor It board, but in case you don't, you can easily use your paper trimmer and stylus as shown here, to make your score lines. Don't have a stylus either? Use a bone folder or the dull pointed cap end of a pen.

Fold as shown here

Fill cellophane or mini zip bags with candy corn or other small candies, and fold the top over. Place the candy bag in the folded treat bag with the folded top of the candy bag inside the treat bag. Punch two holes through all layers and tie with ribbon.

Embellish as you wish and secure with ribbon.
Li'l Mummy would make cute name tags for a classroom party or place cards for the table.

I hope you've enjoyed my projects today and maybe you'll try making the treat bag. It takes literally only minutes to make one. Have a great weekend. Thanks for coming by the studio today. :)
