Trick or Treat we're having some fun today!

Friday, August 19, 2011

Hello there! You should be coming by from Pearl's blog! 


We're having a little fun at My Little Shoexbox today, sharing the Trick or Treat collection with a special blog hop for you! If you didn't start the hop at the My Little Shoebox blog, head on over there to start so you don't miss a thing!

Today I have  a TRICK with you! I created a fun little Halloween themed gift bag with our cardstock stickers and some Spooky treats and Starry nites paper.


These are super easy to create and perfect for your child's classmates or even Trick Or Treaters!

All I did was score a 8X4 piece of cardstock at 5 1/4 and then flipped it and scored the other side and folder the flaps. Apply adhesive and adhere to the front of the bag. I then cut off 3 inches of the top of the bag and used the Martha Stewart web border punch to the top of the bag. Embellish with a boy or girl cardstock sticker and add the name of the child.


I love to use black Washi tape and white gel pen together. It creates a chalkboard effect and looks fun too!

********************

My TRICK for you today is to use plain clothespins to dress up gift bags and create a cute clip that can be used for other things.

Clothespins are cheap at the dollar store


Use Washi tape in fun designs to dress them up.



Next take a cardstock sticker and stack it over a die cut like the Lacey circle die from Spellbinders.


Then add some bling like these circles from Recollections that can be found at Michaels


Now you've created a fun clip for your treat bag that can be used again and again!

Now that you have your Trick it's time for your secret letter!






Now I'll send you over to Zoe!

Here's the master list just in case you lose your way!!
