Happy Tuesday!!! Halloween is right around the corner and today I have some simple yet fabulous treat packaging ideas for you!!! It’s never to early to get start but wait to buy the candy to avoid temptations of eating it all before Halloween arrives!!! 😉
I am loving the Spider Web Doilies and they really are so fabulous you don’t need much else to decorate!!!
First let’s start with the little mason jars. These are really quick and simple and you can put lots of different gift options in there for teachers, neighbors, friends, family, etc – Gift Card, Nail Polish, Candy, Cookies, Chex Mix, Hot Cocoa, and more! I started off by taking my 2-1/2″ Circle Punch and either Basic Black or Pumpkin Pie cardstock for the top lid! The greeting that I used came from the Cheer All Year Stamp Set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. One of them I punched out with a 1″ Circle Punch added it to the lid with a Stampin’ Dimensional. The other one I punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch and layered it onto a 7/8″ Scallop Circle in Basic Black!
Now for the side, I added Tear & Tape half way around the jar right along the top! This is what holds the half of Spider Web Doily onto the jar! Of course since the doily has holes in it and the sticky comes through, I added the ribbon to cover it up! I used Pumpkin Pie Cotton Ribbon to tie around the jar and into a bow. On one of them I placed the bow over the doily and on the other one I placed it on the back side of the doily! All done!!! Fill with goodies and enjoy!!!
For the Treat Bag, I started with a Sketched Dots Gift Bag and used my sponge daubers to add Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight for the candy corn look!!! You can use the ink pad directly to the bag but I found this to be super messy and all of the ink doesn’t soak in so it is a bit of a waste! For the tag, I stamped the word BOO from the Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp Set and the little spider is from the Cheer All Year Stamp Set! These were stamped onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then die cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits! I adhered the tag to the Spider Web Doily and then to the front of the bag!!! Fill with goodies and enjoy!!!
I am not a huge fan of Halloween so I’m never really drawn to Halloween Stamp Set. I do like to make a few cards and treats for the very few trick-or-treats (if any) that we do get. I usually end up giving them to stampers at classes, the cashier at the grocery store and my neighbors! Finding out of the box ways to create the Halloween look is sometimes more fun too!!!
