Halloween Treat Bags – project for Creative Embellishments

Happy Halloween everyone! I’m up again at the Creative Embellishments blog with a project to share. This week, I decided to share a few little treat bags I created for my kiddos. These are real simple, quick, and easy to make, so they’d be a snap for Halloween parties and classrooms as well. For my base, I used the Tim Holtz In the Bag die, but you can easily find templates online that you can trace and cut out too.

***Be sure to check out the Creative Embellishments Store too! ALL Halloween items are 20% off (no coupon code required) now through the entire weekend!***

Here’s how my baggies turned out, decorated with tons of CE goodness:

Treat Box and Card Set – dt project for Creative Embellishments

Wow! I can’t believe it’s Thursday again already! Time sure flies these days. I’m up with a project on the Creative Embellishments blog. This time, I decided to go off page again…I seem to be doing that a lot lately! With Halloween around the corner, I figured I’d make a super quick and easy tutorial for an altered/upcycled treat box and matching card. Here’s how it turned out:

treat box step 7

I started with the packaging left over from my phone’s silicone protective cover. I took out the insert and used it for the base of my tag which later becomes a bookmark for my kiddos once they’ve opened their treats. I cut a notch at the top where the display hook opening is so I can attach ribbon, fibers and trim and still close the case:

I covered both sides of the insert with patterned paper. I decided not to decorate this part further because the wrapped candy will be rubbing against the purple side and I didn’t want the other side to be too bulky to close. I then decorated the outside of the case w/the fabulous CE chippies which I altered with Distress paint, acrylic paint and Art Anthology Dimensional Crystal.

Lastly, I created a card to match using more CE laser cut chipboard pieces.
