It's WACKY WEDNESDAY!
I have LOTS to share and a give away at the bottom of this post! Don't miss out!
I have a FUN "little" paper bag book to show you this morning and I'm really excited about it. In the past I like to make my kids Halloween treats for their classrooms. I figured since Brandon's in Middle School, classroom treats were out of the question. I'll have to come up with a few fun things for his awesome teachers. With Alexis, although still in Elementary school they don't do any of the fun things like we use to years ago… no dress up, NOTHING!! I still wanted to make my kiddo's something fun and something that didn't have candy attached. On page 27 of the Holiday Mini Catalog we have a really fun Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit Bundle that is GREAT to make decorated Treat bags. It comes with 10 Glassine Bags that are die cut on the edges and they are ADORABLE. Check this out-
Today I want to show you something different you can make with this bundle and it's super easy.
Below you will find the products I used to create this mini paper bag album along with a quick video.
Here are a few tips to help you create one for yourself.
Tip- Bend the Metal Flourish Frames in half to act as a clip to keep the paper bag closed. Use the Pumpkin Bakers Twine in the kit to thread through the hole and tie a bow.
Tip: Sponge around the edges of each element lightly with Early Espresso ink to give the aged look.
Tip: Insert little coupons into the bag to use the entire month of October. For example, I placed a Spooky Movie night, a Ghost Tour in DC and we had a big surprise by going to Busch Gardens for the Hallow-Scream. If you have younger kids this is a great way to use as a mini album for pictures of your child in their Halloween Costume this year. You could always journal on the inside pages of fun memories on Halloween Night.
