Today's project share is a treat bag I did at my friend's "mommy and me" private class at the beginning of this month. We made two Halloween treats, a girl birthday, and a boy birthday card. The mom's and children squealed with delight after they ran these AWESOME new glassine bags through the big shot. As much fun as it was to see the bags embossed, I felt they needed some "pop" so after it came out of the big shot, I had the children lay the bags down on their protective paper, and randomly run a stazon ink pad over the top to add ink that wouldn't move, and some color to the front of the spider web! Wicked fun! So in the kit you get 10 bags, and 20 tags. 10 are round (as shown here) and 10 are oblong. We used those on the second project which I'll hopefully share next week. I want to write you a little tutorial for that one because it is "off the hook coolness," Just sayin'
I had 10 people, including my own daughter, Alexis. So, there were 5 moms and 5 kids (ages 7-10), and we used the full contents of one $7.95 kit at the workshop. Plus, each mom and child got a small bag of candy corn to
eat share and decorate the inside of the bag.
Here's what the kit looks like:
- 20 printed double sided tags 10 of each in two designs
- 10 galssine bags with die-cut edges: each 3x5" x 1 1/2"
- 50 adhesive-backed googly eyes (ea. 5 mm)
- 10 pieces Pumpkin Pie/Whisper White Baker's Twine, ea. 8" (color exclusive to this kit).
Colors are Basic Black, Lucky Limeade, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White. I added a little glimmer paper, and dimensionals, glue dots and a 1/16" hole punch, plus the Ghoulish Ghouls Stamp set.
If you purchase the stamp set in clear, it's only $12.95, if you bundle it with one of the kit's it's priced to save you 15%. So the stamp set AND kit in clear is only 16.95, that's like paying $4 for the kit! Wood mount is priced $4 higher for both. This is so affordable to do for the kids for Halloween so THEY can give treats.
So my workshop "wow" was running the bags through the big shot and then adding some stazon ink. I pre punched some champagne glitter paper with the 2 3/8" scallop circle punch.
Next I had the kids make a simple swoop with their ribbon and a few glue dots to stick it to itself behind the tag on top. They stuck it with glue dots to tack it, but added some liquid glue to cement it in between the layers. They stamped the bat from the coordinating Gooly Ghouls stamp set and attached that to the glittery punched piece with dimensionals. At this point my own little one Alexis (7 years old) pipes up and says: "I love using dimensionals, because you can stick them on the back of your element and wait to put them on your project when you're ready" WOW, Go Alexis! I want to recruit my 7 year old! :) Finally the children put the sticky eyeballs on. I don't know how I missed those in my photo. I think I skipped mine because Alexis showed them how to do that with their paper snips. The sticky backed eyeballs that shake come in the kit too, but you can buy them separately (qty 50) for $2.50. yea baby!
Finally, I had the children punch a hole or two side by side one another using the 1/16th" hole punch and run the pumpkin pie bakers twine through. (that twine color is exclusive to this kit). All and all we had a fun day. I don't usually do workshops with kids, but when the kids are such good kids (like this group was), it makes it fun for me!
