Boo to You Werewolf Gusseted Treat Bag by Rick Adkins

Hello and welcome to my blog; today Halloween is just around the corner and it's time to start making super easy and quick but cute treats; I am going to share with you one that I made and it's super easy to recreate.   Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year and I love to get ready for  them.  I was thinking the other day I may actually get organized and make some treat boxes and bags this year super early and actually fill them with candy.  It helps that I got my September Paper Pumpkin since I know that makes 20 treat boxes, so I was feeling inspired and came up with this little cutie using the Boo To You Stamp Set.  Here's a look at my project.

Tips & Tricks: 

The first thing I did was cut a piece of the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper (#150447) down to 
3" x 10".  This designer series paper was roughly scored at 2" & 6 1/2" on my Simply Score Scoring Tool.  So, you can get 4 inserts for your bags from one sheet of /designer series paper.  Which means if you used the entire pack of DSP for this project you would get 48 treat bag inserts.  Once I had the treat insert folded and scored it was time to put it into my 3" x 6" Gusseted Treat Bag (#141704).  Just a little side note if you don't have a scoring tool you can totally just measure it out with a ruler and fold the paper on those measurements, the papers so easy to fold it's not a big deal.  This is the method I prefer.  The 2" part of the designer series paper is the bottom of the bag.  You can place it in and put it on the bottom you may have to do a little work to get the gussets to sit down or you could add a little tape to the bottom.  I found that once it sat for a little while the bottom flaps were just fine.  The top flap folds over; you will want to fill the treat bag and then press in the gusseted sides flip the top part of the Designer Series paper over that and punch two holes.  You are punching through the gusseted bag and the designer series paper.  Make sure that your holes line up with the folded sides of the treat bag and then secure close with your ribbon.
Once I had the Designer Series Paper inserted into the bag I could then fill it with treats.  It was time to dress it up just a little.  So I stamped the werewolf from the Boo To You Stamp Set (#150550) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of whisper white cardstock that I cut out using the largest stitched oval die from the Stitched Shapes Die set.  I then colored him using my Stampin' Blends.  You can find a full list of the colors that I used in the Stampin' Up! Shopping List below.  I then stamped my greeting at the top in Old Olive and added a couple of the Googly Eyes from the Assorted Googly Eyes pack using just a little Liquid Glue.  I then popped the oval up on the front flap with a couple dimensionals.  And, that my friends finished off my cute little treat bag.
