The New Narrow Cello Treat Bags

Notice anything different today?  Maybe you even thought you were in the wrong place. :) I created a new blog header last night using My Digital Studio by Stampin' Up!.  What an awesome program.  It's great for creating cards and scrapbooks but I am finding it is also useful for other things like flyers and my blog...very versatile.

Today I was in the Halloween mood and thought of those new narrow cello bags in the Holiday mini.  They were given to me by prize patrol at convention this year and I'm sure they have been wondering when I was going to pull them out of the dark cabinet.'s the day.

Are they not just the cutest!  You can fill them with all kinds of candy... m&ms, skittles, candy corn, gum balls, red hots, twizzlers and the list goes on.  Or how about a holiday pencil?

The toppers can be round like these.  I just used the scallop and circle punches.  Or square and folded over the top.  You can attach ribbon loops to the top, either thin or wide.  I'm sure there are as many ways to top them as treats to put inside.  The sky's the limit...just use your imagination.

The stamp set used to make the toppers is Batty for You.  One of my favorites.  It has 3 additional stamps besides these.  One of them says "Trick or Treat Smell My Feet".  It's the one I sent my grown boys last year.  Knew they would get a kick out of it.  Fully grown and still want to know where there Halloween treats are. :)

 I did heat emboss the two in black with black craft ink and clear embossing powder.  It made them raised and super shiny.  Wish you could see it better in the picture.

We will be making these at stamp class next week.  Check out the schedule and RSVP.  Would love for you to come stamp with me.  I am thinking about also having class on Friday at 12:30.  If that would work better for some of you please send me and email or give me a call.

Hope your day is a good one!
