Day 7 of the Halloween count down and blog candy

 Today I have of fun and easy treat bag idea. I have taken small lunch type bags and ran then through my cuttle bug with a embossing folder. ( be sure to fold the bottom in on itself so the whole bag gets embossed.) I then rubbed ink over the embossing with a sponge to make the embossing stand out. The bags were found at my Jo Ann Fabrics store in the gift bag area. I then made some bag toppers using spellbinders dies that were a size that fit nicely over the bag when folded. I layered my stamped/colored and die cut pieces on the folded bag topper.
The stamp sets I used were from Raisin Boats All wound up I used spellbinders dies to cut the circles and scraps of paper I had to make a stripe under the circle.This is a fun way to make more of your stamp set by cutting one area of  the stamped image.I hope you try this fun and easy trick to making a treat bag.
Don't forget to leave a comment if you are a follower or sign up to be a follower so you can be put in the drawing for a free stamp set from the girls at Raisin Boat Stamps on October 30th.
Have fun stamping.

Hi!

I like both bags but am drawn to the spider web and black Keynote.
