Bag o' Treats ...

Earlier this year, I made some "bag ties" using punches. It was the perfect thing to revive for the Halloween season to create a lil' bag o' treats ...

For this project, I used:

Stamp Set: Batty for You
Cardstock: Basic Black, Shimmery White, Tangerine Tango
Punches: Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, 1 1/4" Circle, Double Rectangle

I stamped the image with Versamark ink and embossed with black embossing powder. The whole thing was tied on to a small cello bag with a piece of black grosgrain ribbon.

Here's the original Valentine's Day project including some step-by-step pictures.

Swapping out images and colors this bag decoration can work for any occasion! In fact, someone in my stamp class last month said "Wedding Favors" -- excellent idea.
