Autumn Friends

I'm back! I know...can you believe it?! I'm still struggling with creating but I'm doing it anyway as I do have commitments ya know. 

With Halloween time coming up I thought I'd use the wonderful set from Clear Dollar Stamps called Autumn Friends.  Why do I love this set so much?  Well, in this case it is because it comes with some pre-colored, pre-background-ed (not I word I know) 3"x3" treat bag labels!  For my sample today I actually sized mine label to 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" and layered it on a piece of the patterned paper that comes in this set as well.  Now...this isn't just any sample this is the treat bag our cute little friend, Emily, will get when she comes knocking on our door this year (at least I hope she comes again this  please?)!  To personalize it for Emily I just printed some letters from a digital letter kit I have, punched them out with my 1/2" punch, sponged the edges in her favorite color, purple, and then adhered them with a pop dot.  Super easy and super cute!

I hope this fun, quick project will give you inspiration for your favorite trick or treat-ers this year!

Thought of the day:  I love it when someone's laugh is funnier than the joke!

Emily has to love this one!!! What a great idea. Need to check out this set at CDS. Your lack of mojo isn't showing from here.

Adorable treat container.
Love your thought of the day too.
My granddaughter has such a laugh which is way better then her jokes (but hey, she's only 6 1/2).

Oh how CUTE Lorie!! Hope she goes to your house this year or she's really miss out, lol! They girls are needing to do a Halloween gift box/bag too and I really like the simplicity of using a brown bag. Can you believe I don't have any in the house? ;) Anyways, great job, love the twine!
