10/18 Class : Halloween Treat Toppers

Hey All you Croppin Paradisers. I thought you'd like a super quick and easy idea for goodies for your kids' classmates for Halloween. I made these treat bags for the Twinnies' class in 30-45 minutes from pulling product to completion. You can probably make 10 in 10-15 minutes. I used some MME Haunted papers and Reminisce Autumn Forest from the CP store. I also picked up some snack bags and foam stickers from the dollar store (what kid doesn't think everything is made better with those darn foam pieces?!?)

I cut some pp just a tad wider than the bags (6 3/4) wide and about 3 1/4 tall. I scored them in half (the short side). And from there I just started building a cute fun little topper. I used my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to adhere the toppers to the snack bags and voila!!

Weekly Challenge 10/4... Tear it Up

ok ladies... one of the first techniques I probably got into was paper tearing.. remember back in the day, when it was probably one of the ONLY techniques out there?? The challenge is posted to play along HERE, so check it out.

Well for this challenge, it's take it up a notch and tear in layers... Let see AT LEAST 3 LAYERS of tearing... and then add something else to your tears- which could be sewing on it, inking it, embossing it, or anything else that makes you go the extra mile with adding some texture on your page...

Here is my example, I had 4 layers of tearing layers and then machine sewed across the layers:

Here's a close up:
So let's see how YOU tear it up!!!! good luck :)
