I’m back! And I’m back with a treat! Halloween is just around the corner and I wanted to whip up a spooky(ish) project or two to share before it’s too late.
The idea for this project pretty much came right out of the Holiday Mini. I used the Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set and the Frightful Sight DSP to create the cute little toppers for the cello bags. The stamp set and DSP go so great together! And I seriously love the designs on the DSP. Just the right amount of spooky and creepy for a scaredy-cat like me 🙂
To create the toppers, I cut a 1-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ strip from a sheet of Frightful Sight DSP and scored it at 1-3/4″. Then I decorated the topper by stamping an image from the Spooky Bingo Bits set and punching it out using the 1″ Square Punch. I layered the image onto a scalloped square punched out using the Scallop Square Punch. I added a small piece of ribbon folded in half behind the scallop square before layering it onto the topper. To attach the topper to the cello bag, I added a piece of Sticky Strip to the inside of the topper then just folded the topper over the edge of a filled cello bag and adhered it shut.
This is seriously such a quick and easy project to do. And the cello bags are great for filling with little treats such as little chocolates or hard candies. I’ve even seen someone put two novelty pencils in each bag as a fun favor.
These would be great for party favors, class gifts, or even as teacher gifts. Just fill the bags and add your own handmade topper! And of course, you can always change the topper design to coordinate with whatever holiday or theme is appropriate.
Coming Up: I’ll show you another quick and easy way to use the same three products to make some fun treats!
