You know how we love our Try Day Friday series! Each Friday afternoon on our Facebook page, our concept designer Shannon Smith shares a new technique with you LIVE. Isn’t that so fun? This week Shannon has Halloween on her mind! If you saw the video, you can understand why! This little treat bag is so easy and fun to make – you’ll be thinking about Halloween, too. If you’d like to watch on our Facebook page, you can see the video right here. Make sure you leave Shannon a comment and let her know how much you enjoyed her projects and appreciate her sharing a fun project with all of us.
See?! It’s creepy and crawly, so perfect for Halloween! Yet, the little bag is fun to make and would be so cute as decor or maybe even at a place setting. All of that is completely up to you. However, let’s take a quick look at how Shannon put all of this together.
Now, let’s talk about the handles first, since I just told you that you didn’t need to use the die to cut them. Nope, let’s use ribbon instead. We LOVED Shannon’s choice of the Black Licorice Sparkle Ribbon, it’s so pretty and we just love the galaxy of sparkles on the handle of the treat bag. Talk about making it special! But, how about we start decorating, too? How about starting with a piece of one of our Fall-O-Ween Prints cut with one of our Journey Circles?
Now, the fun begins! Let’s stamp! Let’s color! That’s what we love, right?! How about these creepy, crawly spiders? Our Strange Beauty stamp set does the trick bringing the Halloween spirit to our treat bags. Let’s give those spiders some colors with a combination of Liquid Colors [Sweet Pear, Cool Pool, Turbo Teal, Candy Apple & Pretty Amethyst] and a little bit of PanPastels, too. Heck, throw in a little bit of Sparkle Silk just to make it all pop!
Oooh, that all came together so nicely, didn’t it? Let’s finish it off. A simple splatter or two of our Black Licorice Silk will do as well as a handful of our Holiday Sparkles. Now, we’re ready to stuff those bags and have a fun holiday!
