Oh, how I wish I had a deliciously warm chocolate chip cookie right about now. Make that two! I could eat one and put one in this cute little treat bag.
If you look closely, you can see that the bag is made from a Glassine Sheet that I embossed with the new Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the upcoming 2015 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. The embossing gives the bag a spooky feeling, which is of course enhanced with the Spider Web Doily.
Look closely behind the Spider Web Doily. I placed a small silver doily from the Metallic Foil Doilies underneath the spider web to add some pizzazz. The Silver Sequin Trim serves as a dichotomy: a chic and scary treat bag!
Isn’t the little vampire so cute? I love his youthful look and adorable face.
I couldn’t help but think of my neighborhood’s yearly Christmas cookie exchange party. I thought it might be fun to have those types of parties at other times of the year, too. I was thinking that it would be so easy to make these little treat bags for any occasion throughout the year: back to school, Halloween, Thanksgiving … you get the idea! How fun would it be to slow down a little bit and meet with neighbors and friends at times of the year that aren’t so hectic? I think I’ll whip up a few treat bags with an end-of-summer theme, send out an invite, and see what happens! Stay tuned…
