Candice here to share with you a too cute to spook gift idea using dies from the Poppystamps September Release. With Halloween just a few short days away, I created these cute Pastel Halloween treat bag toppers to package up a few Halloween treats for my coworkers. Now if you're not familiar with Pastel Halloween, which is a new trend for Halloween, its simply taking the Halloween theme and decorating in pastel colors like pink, purple and teal instead of traditional orange, green and dark purple. The idea is for Halloween to be more cute instead of scary and gory. I love anything pastel, so designing with a Pastel Halloween theme is right up my alley.
To create my treats bag toppers, I first cut a piece of black cardstock to 4.25 inches wide x 4.5 inches long. Then I folded and scored the cardstock on the 4.5 side in half at 2.25. inches. Next I cut each of my pastel pink, purple and teal pieces of cardstock with the zig zag stripes die. I then assembled the zig zag stripe pattern onto the folded black cardstock base using a piece of each of the three pastel colors.
Next I cut out two ghosts from the Scary Ghost die and adhered them to the bag topper with some foam tape. I then cut a strip of black cardstock and stamped the sentiment A Halloween Hello from the Halloween fun stamp set in Versamark ink. I sprinkled on some white embossing powder over the inked sentiment and heat embossed it. I adhered the sentiment on top of the Zig Zag stripes with some foam tape. Viloa! Now you have a cute Pastel Halloween Treat Bag Topper to dress up your gifts.
This project was so easy and fun to make. I made several of these bag toppers and attached them to the top of my treat bags filled them with a mixture of with halloween themed goodies. Some of my bags contained halloween themed chocolates, while others contained halloween themed magnetic list pads and pencils. For the bags that contained the chocolates, I used the celebrated brand treat bags from Michaels. For you next gift, try dressing up your packaging with a cute bag topper.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed today's project.
