So here is my treat for you. Actually I have two.
If you are having a Halloween party you will need to have some ideas for treat bags and decorations. You can quickly put these cute little gable boxes together and decorate them with paper. Place cards with the kids names or fun Halloween sayings like the one above will look great as accents pieces. I just loved the fun colors and patterns in the new Halloween line from American Crafts. Don't forget to use the code word Glitter when you purchase your product at Embellish-it Online for a 20% discount.
Then after the festivities you will want to document everything with a layout. Here is a quick layout for you to put together using the amazing American Craft Halloween papers and American Craft Hocus Pocus glittery chipboard letters.So here is my trick. To save on cardstock, especially when I only have one piece left of the color I need and I want to use it as an accent piece, I cut out the middle of the paper and then lay my patterned paper on top of the cutout. Usually I cut out of the middle a 10x10 piece so I have a big enough piece to work with if I want to make a card or run it through my Cricut or Silhouette which I did here to make the pumpkins.
I hope you like my trick and will use it on your next project.
