Cookie Cutter Halloween Treats

I watched a video of BJ Peters over the weekend on how to make these adorable little Halloween treat bags using 2" x 8" Cello bags.  Of course, I used the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set and pretty much copied the way she made them.  They couldn't be any cuter, so I've already started making them with the Cookie Cutter Christmas set and I will post those at a later date after I show my club members how to make them.

Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Baby Bear

Year's ago I made a pumpkin costume for Halloween.  My sister-in-law wore it at a Halloween costume contest and won first prize.  So I thought why not dress up Baby Bear in a pumpkin costume using the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer paper.  I stamped the pumpkin from Jar of Haunts on the back of the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer paper and cut them out for the body and the hat.  I used the In-Color Emerald Envy for the stem, label, and the ribbon is the same color in the 3/8" Ruched Ribbon. The base of my card is Pumpkin Pie with a layer of Basic Black and then a layer of the Halloween Night Specialty DSP.  I stamped Baby Bear with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede and then attached the ribbon at his neck by punching two holes to make a mock bow.  Then added the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer for his body and his hat.  I popped him up with Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from Spooky Fun with Memento Black ink and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.

Halloween Grunge Mummy

This is a card I made using 1" x 4" strips of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the "mummy gauze" from the Ghoulish Grunge stamp set on each strip.  Then I tore along one side and sponged it with Smoky Slate and adhered each strip to 4" x 5-1/4" Smoky Slate cardstock.  Then I stamped the mummy from Cookie Cutter Halloween set with Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I punched him out with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. I used a Smoky Slate marker to give it some dimension and sponged the edges with Memento Black.  I added some googly eyes with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Then I stamped the sentiment from Suite Seasons on Whisper White and punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch.  I punched two more Decorative Labels from Basic Black cardstock and trimmed them to fit so that it gave it a layered look.  The base of my card is Basic Black cardstock.  It was such a fun card to make.

Suite Seasons and Jar of Haunts

These little treat holder ideas were from a video I watched of Lisa Brown's so I knew I had to make some to insert my little candies.  The sentiments come from Jar of Haunts and Suite Seasons.  I stamped each sentiment on Whisper White cardstock with Memento Black Ink.  Then I used the 1-3/4" Circle Punch to punch them out.  I also used Smoky Slate ink to stamp the ghosts from Spooky Fun, but stamped off once and then stamped over the sentiments.  Then I punched out a 2" circle of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and mounted the sentiment on top.  I used the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper to cut out a bat from the Halloween Scenes Edgelits and attached it with a Glue Dot.  For the bag, I used the Halloween Night Specialty DSP and cut it at 4" x 6" and scored it at 1-1/2" and 4-1/4" on the 6" side, and 1/2" on the 4" side.  Then I folded the score lines and burnished them with a Bone Folder.  I cut off the two end rectangles and trimmed thin wedges to give the bag a nicer finished look.  I applied adhesive to the sides and then the flap to create the bag.  Insert the candy.  Attach the circle with Dimensionals leaving room for the Halloween Night Baker's Twine on the right side.
