Wicked Cool Treat Sack

My Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini order arrived, and it just happened that the first thing I decided to try was a Halloween bag.  I love the Wicked Cool stamp set in the Stampin' Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog.  You can order the Mini Lunch Sacks #121031 from the Holiday Mini.  Let me tell you, when I opened the package of ten mini lunch sacks, I was amazed! Right away you could tell these weren't your ordinary flimsy thin little paper sacks!  As with everything Stampin' Up!, these little bags are a nice quality and come already scalloped on top!  They measure 3 1/2" x 6 5/8" so they are a very good size.


I just began stamping the little bats on the bag with Black Stazon ink and as an afterthought stamped the "have a Wicked halloween" on there with Concord Crush….but on this bag, the dark purple looks more like black.  I added a strip of Pumpkin Pie (3 1/2" x 1") and Wild Wasabi card stock (3 1/2" x 3/4") across the front.  I also stamped the witches hat in Stazon Black on Whisper White and punched it out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch, sponged it a little with Concord Crush ink, then adhered to a Concord Crush Scallop Circle Punch #119854.  I colored in the band on the witches hat with Stampin' Write Markers and added some White Gel Pen dots to the scallops.  It still needed something, and once I added a strip of the 1/2" Raven Lace Trim #120988 in the Holiday Mini I loved it!  Adhere the scallop circle with a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals.


After filling your bag with treats, you can just punch two holes in the top with the Crop-a-Dile and thread some grosgrain ribbon through.  For a little more pizzazz, I added the "Spooky" sentiment from the Wicked Cool stamp set (page 23 IB&C), stamped in Black Stazon and sponged with some Concord Crush and Pumpkin Pie ink.  I loved adding the orange with the purple!  I also loved the shape of the rubber image, so I just put that back down over the stamped word and traced around it and then cut out with my scissors!  All you need then is to punch a little hole and use some linen thread to make a little hanging tag to tie onto the grosgrain ribbon.  I even added a dimensional under the tag just to hold it where I wanted it.

So there you have it!  An easy little Halloween treat bag with the great new Mini Lunch Sacks!
