Just Treats!

Hi everyone - it's Jeanne sharing with you today.  I love Halloween.  Well, actually I love the cute Halloween decorations and the candy and the trick-or-treaters.  I'm not much for the really scary stuff.  So today I thought I'd share some treat bag tags that feature some adorable cupcakes!
Wouldn't these be perfect party favors or to hand out to special trick-or-treaters? Even if you don't have little ones, these make fun treats.  I don't have small children anymore, but love making treat tags, bags and holders to give out at my Bunco group around holidays.  (I think I know what they'll be getting in October!)  And these would be perfect for co-workers. 
I started by gathering the orange and black cardstock and then finding various patterned papers to match.  I die cut the cupcake pieces from the Spooky Cupcakes die, the bats from the Halloween Pedestal die and the two largest tags from the Mail Tag Set.  When making multiples of things I use plastic containers or a muffin tin to organize my pieces.  I put all the die cuts for one card or tag in one container or muffin cup.  It really keeps things organized!
I laid the smaller tag on top to get the placement of the sentiment correct and then I heat embossed it underneath.  Afterwards I glued the smaller tag to the larger one.
For the cupcake itself, I used two shades of brown and shaded the sides with a sponge dauber and Chocolate Chip ink.
Then I assembled the cupcakes and glued them to the tags.  For the batty cupcake I added some sequins.

Remember - the new dies will be available September 20 and the website ordering will be down until that date due to the big move to a larger space.  Keep that wish list going!

Have a great weekend and I hope I've inspired you to do something creative!

Very cute Jeanne! Your bunco group will love these treat bags. I don't have littles anymore either :( but like you said, this would be great for anyone you want to celebrate a little Halloweeen with! - Janet

these are some great looking tags Jeanne and I love the idea to use them as treat toppers-using the plastic containers to hold all the die cut pieces is an idea I am\a definitely going to use - mine end up getting lost somehow on my work area all the time (lol)!!
