Fun Halloween Treat Bag Decoration

I decided that I should make a treat bag decoration that should be something you could do with minimal supplies.  If you want to do this with white card stock and not watercolor paper, you can use the markers without the blender pen which is why I needed to use the watercolor paper.  I used a round punch that was 2 1/2″ for my white cardstock or in my case, watercolor paper, and an orange cardstock that I punched with a 3″ scallop circle punch.  I used Crayola markers on a piece of acetate, but you could scribble them onto a glass plate, a glass tile, a piece of plastic, a craft mat, almost anything as long as it isn’t a surface that will absorb the ink.  I used a Stampin’ Up blender pen and if you are interested in purchasing one and don’t have a Stampin’ Up demonstrator, my friend Linda Bauwin, would be happy to help you with it.  Her contact email address is jlbauwin@@roadrunner.com.  You get three of them for $10.
I used the following stamp sets from Your Next Stamp and the set is Fangtastic and my sentiment was from Inspired by Stamping and the set is Tricks and Treats and stamped them with Ranger Archival black ink..  I stamped it on orange card stock and punched it out with a 1 7/8″ scallop that I punched a hole in the top near the center.  I used a craft knife to cut a hole in the watercolor paper in our Frankenstein’s hand.  I used black embroidery thread and threaded it through the sentiment and through Frankenstein’s hand and knotted it on the back of Frankenstein.  I used tear tape to adhere the image to the scallop and tape runner to adhere the project to the bag.  You might want to use tear tape to adhere it to the bag as well.
If you did this project with your kids, you could stamp the images on white and whatever color cardstock you want to back the image and for your sentiment to dangle from.  They could color it with markers and then attach the two together with tear tape and then you could help them string the sentiment to the Frankenstein.  You could use regular lunch bags or Walmart sells white lunch bags and you could punch two holes through the bag and tie your string on the back of Frankenstein through the two holes to keep it closed and to attach your decoration.  I hope you enjoyed this and try it for yourself.
