Halloween Treat Bags And Candy Wrappers

Happy Halloween!!

I've been making some last minute quick and easy treat bags and candy wrappers for Halloween.
These are super easy and fun to make.

This bag was decorated with a pumpkin cute from Smiley Faces Cartridge.
I used felt fusion to decorate the bottom of the bag and ribbon to accent the top.
I put Halloween tissue paper on the inside to finish the look.
I used Micro Bags 4" x 5-1/8" . These are a perfect size for treat bags.

This bag I made a window with the Martha Stewart punch all over the page punch.
I decorated the bag with felt fusion and twine.
I framed out the window on the bag with patterned paper.
I accented the inside of the bag with Halloween tissue paper.

This bag I used the Smiley Face Cartridge for the candy corn die cut.
I accented the bag with ribbon.
This bag I also accented the inside of the bag with Halloween tissue paper.

To wrap your candy cut your paper to size for wrapping.
In this instance I cut a 6" x 7" piece of cardstock.

For these Kit Kat mini candy bars I used a 6" x 6" cardstock to wrap them.
I applied double sided tape to three sides of the paper then wrapped them.

I took my Marvy paper crimper and crimped both ends of the candy wrapper.
I accented them with patterned cardstock and ribbon.

Cricut Cartridge - Mother's Day Bouquet - Leaves - cut at 2".
For the stem I just rolled a small piece of paper into a tube and adhered it on with a glue gun.

Trendy Alternatives - Clear Embellishments

Trendy Alternatives - Clear Embellishments
I saw an embellishment online called clear pops. I thought it had a neat effect. What it looks like is a sticker with a clear acetate overlay. I saw it on Pink Paislee website. It is from the Butterfly Garden Collection.

Well I thought this would be a neat project for my Trendy Alternatives post. They are hard to find and I found a trendy alternative for making these yourself.

First I printed and cut the butterfly from the Lori's Garden cartridge on my Imagine.

You can make these clear pops with any clear packaging. I used a cartridge box.
I cut on side off the box.

Next I used the cut only feature on the Imagine and muti cut 4 times.
I did not use the print feature. Pressure and Speed were 5.

Next I adhered the clear acetate overlay on top of the butterfly cut with terrifically tacky tape.

I just put the adhesive on the body of the butterfly.

I then inked the edges so the clear acetate would stand out more.
I bent the wings up to give the butterfly a 3D dimension.

I also used this method with my Vagabond Machine.
I cut my pieces out with the vagabond machine.
First the patterned paper and then the acetate.

I inked the edges of my flower .
I poked holes through the acetate and the paper flower to adhere a button in the center of the flower.

I sewed the button in the middle of the flower to hold the two pieces together.
I inked the edges of the acetate so the clear piece was defined.
I bent the petals up slightly to give the flower dimension.

Here's the card I made with this flower.

You could also make these embellishments with a regular sticker.
Print an image from your computer and cut it out by hand.
Cut the acetate by hand to overlay on top of the image and you have a pretty 3D embellishment.
You could also print the image with the imagine on ink jet transparency.
