Simple Ghost Treat Bag

My friend Darcy showed me this cute little Halloween treat bag.  I just had to make one for myself (not sure who I’m going to give this one to).  How much simpler can you get?  Easy peasy for those last-minute class treats.  The kids can even do it all themselves. 🙂  I used glue dots to adhere the googly eyes.  Stamped the sentiment on white cardstock with black ink and mounted it on green cardstock then adhered it to the bag with double stick tape.  I folded the top backwards and sealed it with tape.  Fill with candy and then you’re done within 5 minutes… tops! 

The stamped sentiment is from a retired stamp set from The Angel Company.

Happy Stamping!!

October Stamp Camp Sneak Peak

This adorable Fall Owl treat bag is a sneak peak at one of the projects we will be making at this Friday’s (October 21st) stamp camp.  I still have a couple of spots available.  Call or email today to register.  You don’t want to miss out on making this and all the other projects I have planned.  Plus, you don’t want to miss dinner and the time spent with all your stamping friends.

I also made a winter version of the this treat bag (pictured below).  You can change the cardstock colors and patterns to adapt this bag for any event or season.  What about changing the bag color?  I think I see a pink owl in my future. 🙂

Pink and White Button Ring

A few years ago my grandmother gave me a treasure chest full vintage buttons.  Well, it wasn’t a real treasure chest like the pirates use, but it felt like that to me.  It was really a 40-year-old blue tin with a flower design on it.  But, none the less, I was pleased to have it.  My grandmother was a seamstress in her younger days and she kept every left over from all her projects.  I always loved playing in those buttons when I was little.  She always let me create with them.  I’d sew them to scraps of fabric, use them in paper collages and of course, glue them to cards.  Just a couple of  years ago my grandmother and I sat down together and made button rings using her buttons.  It’s hard to believe that was one of the last few times we would create together.  Now she is in a total care nursing home six hours away from me so I don’t get to see her that often and she is not able to craft anymore.  I was feeling lonely for her so I thought I would take down her button tin and combine them with some of the newer ones I have acquired.  (I also save everything, I know where I get it from.) 🙂  This is one that I created.  I also have quite a few others listed in my Etsy shop.  So click on over and take a look.  You could own a piece of “grandmother love” too. 🙂
