Trick or Treat Bags
Rotate your paper so that it is returned to the position of 7" tall and 8 1/2" wide. Use a 1 1/2" circle punch (or circle die) to cut a half-circle into the top of the paper, centered between the left edge and the first score line.
Next, trim away the 1" bottom section from the first score line to the right edge of the paper. You will have a 1" x 3 3/4" flap on the bottom left. Cut the flap at an angle on both bottom corners.
Twilight Two paper, and the image sheet from the Twilight 8x8 Pad. Use your trimmer or a craft knife to cut all the little images apart. They each measure 2 3/4" x 2". (You could use the large images from Twilight Eight in the 12x12 paper pad, but they are 3" x 4" and a bit large for this size of treat bag.)
Tip: Rub all paper edges with black ink or a black marker.
Mat one of the small images with black cardstock and then attach it to the bag. Make a little name tag from black cardstock, cut with a metal die or punch. Use a white pen to write on the little tag. Attach the tag to the twine with a mini clothespin. Stuff your bag with treats!
Tip: If you don't have access to a tag die or punch, you can just cut little tag shapes from black paper with scissors. My little tags are roughly 1/2" x 1 1/4" in size.
The little images from the 8x8 pad are the perfect size for this project! I love all the vintage children getting dressed in their costumes! An orange mini clothespin finishes this bag.
Spectrum cardstock in colors that match the paper collection. I used the sheet of Black Jack to make this bag. It works just as well as the printed paper! I decorated the bottom of the bag with a scrap from the 8x8 pad that was magically the correct size!
As you can see, this project would be a great way to use up scraps, and would be fun in any theme!
